Sparky's Info...

I am good with kids.

Sparky's Story...
Sparky is a two year old Black Lab surrendered to the shelter by his owner. He has a history of being friendly with everyone including kids but we don't know about other pets. Sparky knows how to sit and fetch. His previous owner was rough housing and playing with Sparky with his toys and she felt he got too aggressive. Unfortunately she is now afraid of him. Dogs don't realize the power they have when playing and especially when rough housing. It is wise to remember rough play is not the best. This dog was only playing and it is doubtful he meant to scare anyone.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sparky, a Somerset 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 Somerset, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Somerset.

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