Makayla's Info...

Makayla's Story...
Makayla is a strawberry blonde. She is adorable with cute little freckles on her nose. She has a gentle and sweet temperament and is very patient! Her coltish legs love to romp with you outside, but she is just learning to play. She will follow you around the house as you do your chores, will lay on the floor nearby and enjoys cuddling too. Her fur is so soft you will want to pet her nonstop. She is a people pleaser, who just wants to be safe and be loved. She rides well in the car and enjoys taking short walks. She may look to you for courage when meeting new large dogs. Initially she is timid, but friendly with the neighbor dogs through the fence. She is curious and loud items like a paper shredder or vacuum don’t seem to bother her. I think she would do well in any size family. Adopt Makayla if you want a lifelong companion who will be devoted to you.

Makayla is estimated to be about 5 months old and weighs about 18 pounds. Since we don't know at all what doggy genes are in the dogs make up (we don't know who mom and dad are!), we are just guessing on breed and size when grown.

All dogs are spayed or neutered and microchipped prior to adoption. They have all had a vet exam, are up to date on vaccinations, have been given a dewormer, are treated for fleas, have a heartworm test if over 6 months old and are up to date on a heartworm preventative.

Please note that because we require a home visit at the time of adoption we can only place animals in homes within a 60 mile radius of Minneapolis.If you are interested in meeting this dog please fill out the pre-adoption application on our website at under Adopt and we will get back to you to arrange a meeting in the foster home.

We also have an Adoptable Dog Meet & Greet on Saturday October 18, 2014, at Fetch Delivers Warehouse, 783 Harding St. NE. Suite 150, Minneapolis, MN 55413, from noon - 2 pm. Occasionally dogs cannot make it to the Meet & Greet, therefore feel free to verify if your dog of interest is able to attend. Please bring a copy of your pre-adoption application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Makayla, a Minneapolis Retriever (Unknown Type) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Retriever (Unknown Type) for sale in Minneapolis, or seeking a Retriever (Unknown Type) puppy from a breeder in Minneapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis 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 Retriever (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Retriever (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Minneapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
