Duke's Story...
DUKE: 2.5 year neutered male yellow lab 90 pounds

From Duke's Foster/Trainer:

Duke is a very big and very happy yellow lab! This handsome boy weighs in at a whopping 90lbs and because of this he really needed to get some training under his belt. Duke is really enjoying and excelling with his training due to his high desire to want to please a leader. His favorite move is to flop over belly up so you can rub his tummy. He is learning to walk properly on a leash with a correction collar, come when called, and drop his toys when we ask. He needs someone who will continue to work on his obedience because although he has come a long way he still can pull pretty hard if he gets too excited. Duke loves to swim and chase anything you want to throw for him. Even if you don’t throw anything he will go swimming until you tell him it’s time to go. Duke is good with all other dogs he meets but we are always careful to slowly introduce new dogs because he wants to rush to say hello and his big size can frighten some dogs. He is crate trained. Duke is very sweet and would love to be a part of an active family, preferably one that will take him swimming and continue with his training. Duke would not do well with children under 8 years old because he doesn't realize how big he is and may knock them down.

Lab Rescue is looking for someone with big dog (preferably) Lab experience who knows what it takes to be a dog's leader. Any kids in the house should be over 8 years old. We are looking for someone who is around a large part of the day to give Duke the training and the exercise that a large dog needs. Duke is healthy, active, neutered, heart worm negative and up to date on vaccinations.

Duke is located in Geyserville.

If you are interested in this very sweet well-behaved boy, call Rescue Rep Sandy @ 650-303-2436.

(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

Duke, 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.
