Miley aka Charlie's Story...
Miley is a sweet, sweet girl who we believe is 14 years old. I was not too fond of the name Miley, so I call her Charlie. It does not seem to me that is really her age, but that is what her previous owners said. I have been fostering Charlie for a few months now and from day one, she was perfect. She is sweet, loving, and happy with tail wagging all the time. She is house trained and does her business outside when needed. She is up-to-date on all her shots and microchipped as well. In addition, she does not hear very well, so you have to talk to her with your “outside voice”. I do not really have to use that, I just call her name a little louder than usual and then wave her over to come in. At this point, when I do call out “Charlie”, she looks up and comes. Her owners said that she used to have a brother, who passed away earlier this year. The family moved from a house to a condominium and once Charlie was left alone, they said she barked all day long and neighbors were complaining. They shuffled her from house to house while they were gone during the day and I guess that was too much. I am not sure, why a bark collar was not option, but nevertheless they decided to give her up. I have tested the being away problem with Charlie alone in the house and my lab Mashers has been at my daughters’ house. My neighbors say that they do not hear her barking and I have done this a few times, no signs of incessant barking from her. I work from home and travel. At times, she has been inside all day and has no accidents. I have a 12-year-old male black lab Mashers who is as mellow as the day is long and they get along very well. I have a pool, he swims, and she watches. I do not think she has any interest in the pool, but loves to chase a tennis ball and fetch. Most of the time when I am home working she is close by napping, so she definitely likes being in the same room with you. She does like being outside and lays in the backyard, when she is ready to come in, she will come to the door and do a “one bark”, then wait. If you do not come, she will do the “one bark” again. She is good walking both on and off the leash and from what I can gather has had some good training. There was no reason to crate her when I first got her, she was good from the get go.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Miley aka Charlie, 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.
