Sally's Story...
"Mustang" Sally: 2 Year Old Spayed Yellow Female Lab 60 Pounds

Fresno Lab rescue reached out to Golden Gate Lab Rescue to see if we would be able to take Sally. Sally passed all the tests at the shelter and her time was up so we decided to help Sally and take her into our program. Sally was an owner surrender as her owner came back from serving in Iraq and was injured; so he could no longer take care of a young active dog. He tried to get friends and family to take her with no luck so he had to surrender her to the shelter. (He asked the shelter to let him know if she was not going to be adopted and he would try to make things work.)

We took Sally into our program four weeks ago. When we took in Sally she was in heat, she had kennel cough and when we met her there was something wrong with her eye. We had to wait for the kennel cough to be over before we could take her to an eye specialist. We finally got her in to the eye doctor and Sally needs to have her eye removed. The pressure in one eye is 13 and her other eye is 67. Once Sally has her eye removed she will be in less pain and having one eye will not slow Sally down! We had Sally professionally evaluated and she passed all the tests the evaluator put her through. She was active in the car at first, we would recommend using a crate or a tie down in the car with her. She knows sit, stay and come with treats. She loves to be with people and she loves to run and run and chase balls! She is clean in her kennel and with her previous owner she was an inside dog and part of the family. Sally needs to work on her leash manners as she does pull hard on the leash; she gets very excited at first and will settle down after a few minutes but we would recommend walking her with a correction collar. She met many dogs at the kennel and out with the dog trainer and she had no issues other than getting excited about the smaller dogs.

We now have Sally in a foster home and the foster reports:

Sally is a complete sweetheart of a dog. She has adjusted extremely quickly to our home and family. She is very loving and plays well with other dogs. We are working on her manners especially jumping up. She has a lot of energy and needs to go on a couple of walks a day. She is ready to meet her forever family and will quickly bond and give back with love and affection. Sally sleeps in a crate at night and she is great with the foster mom’s two dogs. The foster has fostered many dogs for GGLRR and Sally has been one of the best! She settled into the fosters’ home and routine right away. Sally plays great with the foster mom’s two dogs. She is super adaptable and is a very affectionate dog.

Sally needs to be in a home where someone is around, a home that will continue her training, a home that can get her out for regular exercise – a tired dog is a good dog and a home with older kids. Sally may knock over a small child. Sally does get excited when she sees small dogs so we think she would chase cats; so a home with no cats or small dogs.

Sally is very healthy, has all her shots, is microchipped, heartworm negative and is spayed. We had the eye removal surgery and Sally is doing great! She is located in Danville.

If you have the time for this active happy girl and want her to be a part of your family, please contact Liz at 415-613-6374.
(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you. When the dogs are in foster homes then it may take longer as we need to touch base with the fosters for updates on the dogs. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week and we do not have a facility that we keep the dogs housed in. They are scattered all over the Bay Area.)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sally, a San Francisco 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 San Francisco, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in San Francisco.

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