Doug's Info...

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

Doug's Story...
Hi there, my name is Doug and I am a dog, a puppy more specifically. I was brought into the shelter here in Memphis when I was just 8 weeks old (I am about 9 weeks old now...3/17...happy St. Patrick's Day BTW.) So here's what I've learned over the past week. The shelter isn't a good place for a puppy, especially not one with a little fur loss. I now know that some dogs get put in a part of the shelter where only rescues can go, and not the general public. They call it "stray" and it's like the kiss of death for dogs. You see the shelter where I was euthanizes 60-70% of all animals who walk through their doors. My odds of getting out were pretty small, until rescue found me. Which brings me to what else I've learned....

I have learned that rescue is a good thing. Rescue means a foster home will take you. A foster home means that you get to live with a family, that you get love and attention, good food and a soft place to sleep at night. If you are one of those lucky dogs, like me, who gets a foster, you get a chance to find a forever home. And that's what I'm doing now, looking for a forever home.

I've also been able to see the vet since I've been with my foster family. The vet took a look at my skin (they did what is called a skin scrape - ouch!). My skin scrape was negative which they tell me is actually a good thing. They were looking for mites and, although they didn't see any, they are still treating me like I have them, because, as my foster mom and vet said, "better safe than sorry." I will need to finish up all my medicine before I can go to my forever home, and that will be in about 2 weeks. So for now, I'll enjoy being here.

Here are a few things you may want to know about me. I enjoy working from the home office, I live with kids and dogs and am quite smitten with the neighbors cat, he's so fluffy and cute I think he'd make the perfect friend. I also like napping, eating and trying to run up the slide. The kids tell me I'm going the wrong way, but as long as I'm out there playing with them, it doesn't matter to me.

My adoption fee is $450 and includes my vaccines, neuter surgery, microchip, health certificate and transportation from Memphis to your area. Please let the rescue know if you are interested in adding me to your family!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Doug, a Greenfield Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog for sale in Greenfield, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog puppy from a breeder in Greenfield.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Greenfield 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 Greenfield 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/German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Greenfield paves the way for another one to be saved.
