Luna's Story...
LUNA: ~3 Year Old Female Black Lab 55 Pounds

I am missing a leg. No big deal. Not sure where I lost it. But its absence sure doesn’t stop me. I can still outrun most Chihuahuas, mini-poodles, and beagles. I came to GGLRR from the streets of Oakland (via the Oakland Animal Services city shelter) in early December. What a wild ride that was. One day hanging out as a stray in the big city, then suddenly scooped up by the local dog catcher and forced to live in a tiny and cold dorm room with a gazillion barking pit bulls all around me, then befriended by a nice volunteer at the shelter and checked out by some guy with a shirt that says “Good Boy”. Good boy, indeed. This guy scoops me up and drives me to some 5-star residence in San Jose… and this human woman-servant is now seeing to my every need. She is even picking up my poop when we walk around the neighborhood. No one ever picked up my poop before. Not only does my poop not stink, it seems to be worth collecting. I am in heaven.

What Luna’s foster says: Luna is settling in here nicely. She gets around extremely well with a rear wheel missing. She does need help getting her rear into the back seat of a car, but the front goes right in. And getting out, she has no problem. She enjoys the car rides. Luna is extremely curious about things around her… smelling everything. Luna does pull on the leash, and we are working on that during our walks and she is doing much better. She has not done much barking; she is quiet in the house and on walks. But when she does bark, an intruder would think again about entering. She loves tummy rubs.

What Luna’s GGLRR rep says: Luna is a super sweet, cuddly girl. We’re not sure of her exact age but she’s got really pretty teeth and is on the younger side. She is a bit skittish around small dogs, but great with people, and would be fine in a home with kids. We’d love a home where someone is around much of the time; Luna’s favorite thing is hanging out with her human! She doesn’t need another dog, although she would get along fine with one, and she’s a moderate energy dog, quite happy with a couple of good walks each day. No need to go jogging to keep this sweet girl exercised!

Luna is current on all shots, heartworm free and on preventive, and micro-chipped. Luna is located in San Jose.

If you are interested in adopting Luna, please call GGLRR Lab Rescue Rep, Debbi 408-613-2044.

(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

Luna, 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.
