Kennedy's Story...
Meet Kennedy. We think she is around 5 years old and he likes the attention of other dogs. He loves to cuddle and loves to sleep with you. He is housebroken and he doesn’t chew anything that he isn’t supposed to. He knows some basic training including learning to wait for his dinner. He bonds easily with his family members and he will follow you around to make sure you are okay. Kennedy will chase cats so not cats in the house for Mr Kennedy. Kennedy is super sweet but the adoption day environment is at times too much for him so he shows better at individual appointments. He is a great dog looking for a family with lots of love to give.

UPDATE FROM FOSTER MOM – AN INTERVIEW WITH KENNEDY:

M: What is your favorite time of the day?
K: I love anytime that my fosters are awake. I love to follow them around and keep an eye on them. I wouldn’t say that I am nosy but it is more like I didn’t have a great life before being rescued and I just enjoy their company.

M:What is your favorite hobby?
K: That one is easy. When I see my fosters get my harness I go a little crazy. I just love to walk.

M:What are you good at?
K:Well I don’t mean to brag, woof woof, but I am great at giving affection. I actually learned my technique from watching the cats in the shelter. I was in there for quite some time and I noticed that they rubbed up again people and that people liked it. I tried it on my new master and sure enough, they think I am adorable. I have mastered it, especially at bed time.

M:What makes you special?
K: My personality of course! I have a deep bark but am gentle and loving. I like to go with the flow. My other pack members really like me. The little dogs that are short with the long bodies sleep all the time so I just ignore them. My buddy is a black dog with long hair and is about my size. I like to play with her. She likes to get me to chase her around and it is so much fun.

M:Do you have anything else to tell anyone that might want to adopt you?
K: Yes, I just want to be loved. I know the people that are fostering me right now love me and wish they could keep me but if they do that then they can’t help other dogs like me. I heard my fosters talking about me the other day and they said that they lucked out on their first foster because I am so special and good. I try really really hard. I don’t chew things that I am not supposed to. I don’t go to the bathroom in the house because that is just gross. I will sleep on the bed with you if you let me. I like to cuddle first and then I will go to the bottom of the bed and stay there all night. Okay, I will admit I can be a little lazy and sometimes they have to coax me off the bed in the morning but I only do it because it is so comfy. Also, when my fosters leave the house they don’t even put me in my crate anymore. They have to with 2 of their dogs but they let Peyton and me stay out and we are so good. We never ever get into any trouble and we are so excited to see them when they come home. If you see me and like me, please please just take the time to meet me. I am not a big kisser but I make up for it in cuddling.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kennedy, a Cumming 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 Cumming, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Cumming.

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