Dixie's Story...
Hi, I'm Dixie. The vet says I'm 1 but my foster parents think I act maybe a little younger than that. I love to play chase but haven't figured out fetch. I am energetic sometimes and I love to lounge in the sun. I'm super smart and sassy. I'm working on leash training and am starting to get the hang of it but there is so much to see that I get distracted. I'm also working on my basic commands. I'm a little stubborn and sometimes I talk back. I have a foster sister, Roxy, that I like to boss around. She's great to snuggle and play with. It would be great if she could come too but she isn't ready to go yet. I like car rides and playing outside but my favorite spot is inside, sprawled out on a rug. My foster parents are convinced that I haven't spent much time in a house so I am working on my manners. I am mostly house and crate trained.

If you are interested in this dog, please fill out an application at www.DLRRphoenix.org. Someone will call to schedule a home visit so you can become an approved adopter. Also, visit our wonderful Facebook page at www.facebook/desertlab. Thanks!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dixie, a Phoenix 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 Phoenix, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Phoenix.

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