Charlie's Story...
Hi, I am Charlie and I am a beautiful, plus sized (for now!) Chocolate Labrador Retriever. My previous owners fed me too much and I am very overweight. My foster mom has me on a diet and exercise program and I am so excited! I am feeling better already, I can move better, I can play better, and I am just a much happier fella. I have my own facebook page that is tracking my journey – Charlie the Lab and his Weight Loss Journey (!/charlielosesweight)! You can find out lots more information about me there. Depending on when you read this, I might still have more weight to lose prior to my adoption, or if you really like me, we can discuss a foster to adopt process or if you are willing to be patient and wait for me that would be great too. My new family must PROMISE to regulate my food intake and keep me active. I have already discovered that I am much more playful and active than all this weight made me feel, so I love walks and chasing tennis balls and playing with other dogs (my size, or at least close J). That’s because I am a Labrador! I am very well behaved, house broken, walk well on a leash, get along with big and small dogs and even cats, and am just an all-around good guy. I am still a large Labrador and probably need to weigh 90 lbs or so, so I think I will be quite a handsome fellow when I am at the right weight. Do you have room and time in your live for a large, goofy chocolate Labrador like me?
Charlie is fostered in Huntsville, AL. To meet him, please email or complete the application at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Charlie, a Homewood 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 Homewood, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Homewood.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Homewood 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 Homewood 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 Homewood paves the way for another one to be saved.
