Emily's Story...
Emily: 5 -6 year old female black lab mix 55 lbs

This is what Emily’s family has to say about her:

Emily is gentle, smart and soulful! We adopted her four and half years ago, and though it breaks my heart, I have to find a new home for her because of health problems and a change in my living situation.

She loves to go for walks, run and play. Emily is energetic yet calm, healthy and athletic and has been given daily rigorous exercise, about 45 – 60 minutes a day. She loves to play fetch and will bring the ball back, though for some reason insists on dropping it a foot or so away from where you’re standing.

Emily does have a strong prey drive, will try to chase critters when out on a walk, so a home without cats will be best for her. She rarely barks but does have a delightful array of grunts and snores. She bonds quickly will cuddle indefinitely and adores massages. Emily has a very soft mouth when given food. She is house trained, and loves to ride in the car.

Emily will walk well on a leash until she sees another dog that she would like to go and meet, and then she will pull with excitement. She lived with a Golden Retriever for several years; they were best friends. I spend a lot of time with Emily, but she’s fine when left alone in the house, she is not destructive. She sleeps in my bedroom all through the night.

She knows sit, down, give, come, stay, and gimme five. Emily will also do most of the commands with hand signals alone.

Emily loves being with people so much that I hope she will go to a home where someone will spend a lot of time with her, she is an extraordinary girl!

What our trainer has to say about Emily:

Emily is a very sweet girl and on the small side. She really likes to be around people. She did not show any type of aggression towards me other than barking when I first came to the door. When I sat down, she came over and put her head in my lap to be pet. The owner says she does whine at and pull towards dogs when she’s out and on a leash. She did pull towards my dog to greet but did fine meeting him. The owner says she has a pretty high prey drive and has never lived with cats so probably best not to be in a home with any. I think she could live with another mellow male dog. I think she could live with children but because she has not before it would be best with dog savvy kids.

What Lab Rescue has to say about Emily:

Emily was rescued from a shelter about four years ago. Her “mom” is very sadden to make this very hard decision to find Emily a new home. Emily has been well taken care of and is very healthy. We would like to see Emily go to a home that will include her in their activities. Continue to work with her on meeting dogs appropriately on walks. Emily is a very smart, happy girl; that needs a home that will exercise her, play ball, and continue being her leader.

Emily is spayed, micro chipped, up to date on her shots and takes heart worm preventative.

If you have the time for this sweet, 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

Emily, 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.
