Dobby's Story...
Dobby is a handsome two year old lab mix who was adopted from us as a puppy but brought back when he showed defensive behavior towards visiting children in the house. He is a good boy with a lot to offer but became protective of his people. He gets along well with most other dogs but can be rather intense at first. Because of this, a larger doggy roommate would probably do best if you're interested in adopting and currently have a dog in your home. Dobby is very loving and loyal, and bonds quickly with people who show him kindness. He needs that special someone who will take the time to create a bond and build a trusting relationship. Because of his issues in his previous home, Dobby's new home will have to be free of children who are younger than 16. He is housetrained and has good house manners, so given a little time to adjust, he should transition well into his new home. Ask an adoption counselor for more information on this loveable guy!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dobby, a Ithaca Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Ithaca, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Ithaca.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Ithaca already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Ithaca breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Ithaca paves the way for another one to be saved.
