Charlie (i'm a girl!!)'s Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Charlie (i'm a girl!!)'s Story...
Hey! Hey! Hey!! Grrrrrrrrr, I'm Charlie, grrrrrrr. I always sound this way
because when I get excited I HAVE to pick something up in my mouth (toys are my
favorite but I will pick up ANYTHING if I can't find a toy). I have been with
my foster mom and dad for a few months (I think I'm about 8 months old). I am a
sweet girl. I weigh about 35 pounds now (some say I'm getting chunky but I just
don't see it). I look like a chocolate lab but I am much smaller. When I first
came to my foster people I felt different than I do now. I was found on the
porch of a church. I had marks all over my face because I had to fight for my
food. I was skinny (didn't see that either) and I really did not care for
people or other animals much. I just plain didn't trust anyone. I feel AWESOME
now. I live in this place and, you won't believe this, I have a NEVER ending
supply of food. I never have to fight for food anymore.

There are other dogs here. They eat, I eat, we all eat. It really truly works
- we don't have to fight. The three other dogs are Maggie, Georgia and Beans.
Maggie is my buddy. She is a basset mix with long ears - those ears are
delicious!! My mom says "Charlie!" a lot when I chew on Maggie's ears. Maggie
squeaks so apparently that makes mom squeak. I didn't say that these folks
weren't strange! Georgia is an older dog. She is a lab mix. Mom is posting
some pictures of me playing tug o' war with Georgia. I love her - she is fun.
She gets grumpy and doesn't want to play sometimes so when she grumps I go find
Maggie and the ears. There's Beans too. Beans is a schnauzer mix. Some call
him Beans, I won't repeat what I call him. I love Beans and Beans loves me but
he gets really particular sometimes. Mom says that he's jealous. I can't sleep
in the bed because Beans won't allow it. I do go up to mom in the middle of the
night and she will pet me and I crawl up next to her. What's Beans doesn't know
won't hurt him. :)

We also have cats here. We have Tiny (who names a 20 pound cat "Tiny"??) Tiny
likes to pat my head and say "hisssssss". Must be a cat's way of saying "Good
girl", he could use a really good nail trim though I tell you! We also have
Zilla. Zilla is a tiny Tiny. She ignores and avoids me for some reason.
There's also Nala. Nala is old. Really old. She walks crooked and everything.
I follow her around but she is no fun - no chasing that girl. I mainly just
look at the cats. I bark at them occasionally and act like I'm going to chase
them. If they would run I would chase them. Lazy cats.

When I first came here it was a bit odd. They let me IN the house. They let me
ON the furniture. I was skeptical. It took me a while to get used to coming
inside and sitting wherever I wanted. (Did I mention that they have a never
ending food bowl??) I am pretty much used to being inside now. It fits my new
lifestyle pretty well. I stay outside with the other dogs while the mom and dad
are at work. We have a huge yard and I have never even thought of leaving - why
would I?? (never ending food bowl!) When mom gets home from work we all get
treats. I love treats - they are a bonus to the food bowl! When dad gets home
we go walk. We walk through the woods and, you will not believe this, there is
a pond. We go by that pond FOUR different times. Bet you can't guess what I do
EVERY time!! I swim!!! I love to swim!! When we get back to the house my mom
and I play a game. It's called "Catch Charlie and dry her off". This game was
terrifying at first but now it's just a normal thing.

My pictures are not the greatest. I have to have a toy in my mouth most of the
time and I wag a lot!! It's hard to be still when you are such a happy dog!!

I would love to meet you and we can be friends forever!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Charlie (i'm a girl!!), a Syracuse Labrador Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Syracuse, or seeking a Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Syracuse.

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