Daphne's Story...
Meet Daphne! My foster parents say I am just as cute as a button! I am a petite puppy at 10 months old and I weigh about 42 pounds. The vet said he didn't think I would get much larger. Don't let my size fool you though. I have as much love in my heart as a dog twice my size! I am very energetic and would love to have a very active family, preferably one that would take me on long walks or runs on a regular basis. I really could use a little training since I have a couple of habits that my foster parents are working on with me on. Not always, but sometimes when I get excited I jump up and try to lick your face. I also like to stand up and lean on the counter when my foster mom makes my dinner. She tells me I should not do that, but I haven't stolen any food. I just like to watch. I've had a couple of accidents in the house, but now that I have the doggy door down I have done so much better. I am crate trained and when you tell me it is time to go to bed, I run in and go to sleep. I sleep all night long and my foster dad usually has to wake me up to feed me breakfast. I don't chew shoes, furniture anything like that. I love my toys and dog chews the most! I'm past that puppy stuff! I don't know how I would get along with kitties since my foster parents don't have any. I get along great with other dogs and would do well with or without them. It would make me very happy though if I did not have to stay home alone all day. I think I'm still too young and I would be sad to be home alone all day. Older children would be fine since I still have my habit of jumping, plus when I get excited I like to run really fast and play and I might knock a baby down by accident. I love snuggling with my foster mom at the end of the day or laying at her feet while she sleeps on the chair. Did I mention that my foster parents have not ever heard me bark? I think I have it in me but in general, I'm a quiet, playful girl!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Daphne, a Phoenix 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 Phoenix, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Phoenix.

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