Gator's Story...
Meet Gator! Gator is a Shep/Lab 6-7m; Gator was just surrendered to us by an older gentleman with this story: He was vacationing on the Seminole Lake in Georgia when he saw this puppy dumped on the lake. This lake is known for it's gator population, with one he mentioned over 10' long and they are aggressive enough to snatch the fish off of fishermen's lines! He said he had grown up in Georgia and saw a gator kill a dog once and knew he couldn't let that happen to this puppy. So he brought the pup home. He said that he is a great dog, just to energetic for his wife, himself and 2 older dogs. He said the pup has knocked them down a time or two, so they had to decide to surrender him. I wanted to call him Gator bait, but we compromised with Gator. :D He is a dandy and is very sweet!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gator, a Florence Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Labrador Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Labrador Retriever for sale in Florence, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Florence.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Florence 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 Florence 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 Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Florence paves the way for another one to be saved.
