Carter's Story...
CARTER: 2-3 year neutered black male lab mix 65 pounds

Carter was an owner surrender to the Solona shelter. They got him as a puppy and have not done much with training. He was alone during the day and then would get walked a few times a week. They had small kids and when Carter was around the children he would give them a hug and they could not handle this behavior so they decided it was best to surrender him to the shelter. GGLRR was contacted and we went to meet Carter and to see if he would pass out evaluation. Carter had no issues other than he is a young active dog that needs more manners. We pulled Carter and we currently have him at our boarding facility we use and he is getting along with the variety of dogs at the kennel and he gets out on a daily basis to play with a variety of dogs. Carter was an inside dog when the family was home so he is housebroken, he was in the home with a cat and another dog.

Carter is a young boy that needs exercise each day so then his brain can focus on some training. He is a very easy boy and wants to please his leader but he needs someone to let him know some of his bad habits are not ok. His one main bad habit is he will try to give you a hug when you meet him. (GGLRR wants Carter to be in a home with older kids.) Carter loves to ride in the car, he has been swimming and he is not so sure about a ball. He has excellent house manners and is the more submissive dog in the pack. HE is not a barker and when left alone he is not destructive.

If you think you can give Carter the exercise and training please call his rep to talk more and book a time to come and meet him. He is a very nice boy and with some more training he will be a dog you can take anywhere and a dog that can meet anyone!

If you have the time for this nice boy and want him to be a part of your family, please contact Liz at 415-613-6374 or email

(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

Carter, 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.
