Shawney's Story...
When her owner passed away and Shawney landed in the shelter, she captured our hearts with her sweet disposition. Just look at her in the video below, and you'll see what we mean! She needs a loving home where she can spend her golden years. She is deaf and is happiest when she can see "her person. " She's a perfect companion for someone who is retired or who works from home. Shawney is housetrained, knows the hand signal for "sit," is good with dogs and with cats, enjoys leisurely walks, and is easy to handle on leash. She enjoys the company of FOCAS foster dog, Chewy, who she currently shares a home with. She is generous with her doggy kisses; can you be generous and offer her a home? In addition to her own video here, she also makes a brief appearance in Chewy's video, on his FOCAS web page.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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