Jenny's Story...
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Jenny is a very sweet sensitive, slightly insecure girl.  She is one years old.  She is a owner surrender due to her owners not having time for her.  She had been living from a pup as a outside only dog.  She DOES NOT want to live that way.  She WANTS TO BE A HOUSEPET AND VERY MUCH PART OF YOUR FAMILY AND LIFE.  That is the reason she is a special needs girl.  She needs the adjustment to being a family pet inside, she is living that way here, and is completely housebroken.  She does need crating when you can't be home, and at night for a bit, as she has counter surfed, and pulled food off the counters.  But remember she is just learning what is acceptable in the house.  You have to think of her as a housebroken puppy.  She knows when she is doing something wrong, as when she is caught and told NO, she will run into her Crate.  She is very very smart, and understands commands very nicely. 

Due to her really wanting to be near you, and be in the house with you, following you from room to room, you need to have time to be there for her.  She just wants to know she is loved and close.  In my living room or playroom, when we all are sitting watching tv or reading, she just finds a spot to lay down and is very content to be in the room with you. 

I would like Jenny to have a person that does not work full time, and will have the time to be near her.  She will need a at least a four foot fence so she can run and play ball safely with you.

SHE DOES NEED TO BE WATCHED or BE WITH WHILE OUTSIDE FOR AWHILE!!! She would love to go for walks and just hang with you.  She did NOT like living at her previous home as she was sentenced to life outside when she wanted in, and got very upset and bored and dug under their privacy fence even when they were home ignoring her to find her own happiness!!! CAN YOU BLAME HER????  NO NOT AT ALL!!!!

We have a four foot cyclone fence in the backyard looking out to woods, and many cats living outside the back fence.  She does not even care they are laying feet from her on the other side of fence.  She does not jump that fence to get out of our yard, as she stays close to the back door wanting to come in.  We do have a hot wire around the bottom of our fence to keep ALL the rescues safe, and she got jolted by it once, and now will not get close to the fence at all.  She even likes to lay contently on a doggie bed placed on the outside of the French Door up against the house when she is outside here and I am not.  SHE JUST REALLY WANTS TO BE CLOSE TO YOU!!

So in closure here, I would love for her safety and needs, to go live with a family that is home a lot, so she is not crated all day.  And a person or family that really wants a companion, a walking buddy, a running buddy, a BEST FRIEND for the REST of her life.  If you can not commit to that, then she is not the right dog for you!!!

She does needs time to adjust to another playmate, and I know she would love to be an only dog, getting the love for her!!!!

SHE CAN NOT GO TO A HOME FARTHER THAN A HOUR OR TWO AWAY, AS WE ALWAYS HAVE A BRING BACK POLICY FOR ANY REASON!!!!  BUT DO WANT HER TO BE THOUGHT OF AS A FOREVER PET AND BEST FRIEND.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jenny, a Dothan 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 Dothan, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Dothan.

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