Diego's Story...
~ adoption fee applies please email ~

My name is Diego! Well it is now as that is what my foster mummy calls me … personally I like my new name very much! The reason why I have a new name is because I was picked up as a stray by Animal Control on a freezing cold day and brought to the pound … I sat there and waited for 5 long days in what they call a “stray hold” but no one ever came for me. Then I sat around for another 3 days while the pound decided what to do with me.

I was very sad and depressed there… I hid at the back of my cage alone and quiet. Even when a kind volunteer came to meet me to take my picture so that she could share it with rescue groups I barely acknowledged her… she called me softly and when I saw she was about to cry I felt so bad I crawled from the back of my cage to the front to greet her and comfort her but my head never left the floor! She was so sad for me she contacted CAA Rescue immediately and 12 hours later a nice woman came to get me and said she was my Foster Mummy! I have absolutely no idea what she meant but she was so kind; I trusted her instantly and was just so very happy to leave the pound I gladly bounced right into her car!

I do travel well in the car; I just lie down in the back and watch the world go by! So if you have long drives to the weekend chalet you can rest assured that I am your Road Trip Travel Buddy!
I do walk well on the leash but in all honesty it seems like a very new thing to me… I am a little nervous on my walks. Not in a bad or mean way; No Way is there one bad or mean bone in this body … I am just a little shy and unsure of myself. I do enjoy the walks and I am sure the more time I spend out and about going for walks the more comfortable I will get. I am not a puller so if you like to walk then I hope you will take me with you to keep showing me that there is nothing to be shy about
I am absolutely clean in the home and do know all my basic commands in French. I do not jump on people and am absolutely the politest dog with everything and everyone … so I am thinking if you came for a visit you should call me Mr Diego ;)

I am calm in the home and do get alone with both cats and dogs in foster care! Honestly I am a pretty chill doggie in the home but if you like to play in the back yard with me well I definitely have the get up a go attitude to chase the snow balls you throw! Something tells my foster mummy that I probably love the water too … just a guess though!

I have not been around or tested with young children; since I was a stray and there is no known history on me it would probably be better for now if I am only in a home with children ages 10 and up who can understand and be respectful of the potential hardships I may have faced in my past life.
I show no signs of anxiety in the home when left alone; seriously I am just a happy good boy!
Foster mummy says I have a baby face … I dunno about that! Check out my pictures and tell me what you think? She also says I have very deep and soulful eyes that speak to her very much! She often looks sad sometimes though when she is looking at me – I guess she is wondering what my life was like before she met me. How my claws got so darn long? How I was walking the streets in freezing cold temperatures with no one looking for me? I just put my head on her lap and look at her; hoping she can read my thoughts – see through my eyes that none of that matters to me anymore! I am here now; Alive because of Her! Happy, with a full tummy and a comfy bed to sleep on because of her! I don’t need to know where I was I only need to know where I am going… I need a family who can truly love me for the next six to eight years of my life! I have all my heart and soul to give to my family; it is the only thing I have ever wanted!

If you are looking for a best friend and promise to always love me; if you are reading my story and know that it is me that is missing in your life and that I am the one that can make your family complete please email and ask them for an application for adoption. It is a few questions and it will take no longer than 20 minutes to complete but once you do that we can meet. When we do meet we will know instantly if you are the one I have been looking for, for the last 4 years of my life!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Diego, a Pierrefonds 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 Pierrefonds, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Pierrefonds.

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