BISHOP(WHAT A STORY-PLS READ!!'s Story...
BISHOP***CONTACT MICHELLE mmay@kylabrescue.com***AN UNBELIEVABLE STORY!!! "THE CHILDREN WANTED A PUPPY SO THE FAMILY THREW BISHOP AWAY"!!! WE RECEIVED A CALL FROM THE DIRECTOR OF ONE OF THE HIGHEST KILL SHELTERS IN THE SOUTH TELLING US A STORY THAT WAS TRAGIC AND EVEN HARD TO BELIEVE. A FAMILY SHOWED UP AT HER SHELTER MOM, DAD AND THEIR CHILDREN THEY ALSO BROUGHT THEIR BLACK LAB NAMED BISHOP. THE FAMILY TOLD THE DIRECTOR THAT THE CHILDREN WANTED A PUPPY AND THEY JUST DIDN'T WANT BISHOP ANYMORE!!!. THE DIRECTOR WAS IN SHOCK, AS SHE TOLD US WHAT A GENTLE, LOVING FELLOW BISHOP WAS AND HOW MUCH HE SEEMED TO LOVE THE CHILDREN. THE MAN EXPLAINED THAT BISHOP HAD BEEN A PART OF THEIR FAMILY ALL HIS LIFE BUT THE CHILDREN JUST DIDN'T WANT HIM ANYMORE. THE CHILDREN NEVER PLAYED WITH BISHOP AND HE JUST SAT MANY DAYS ALONE IN THEIR YARD. HIS NEXT COMMENT "WE WANT TO SEE SOME PUPPIES!!!" THE FAMILY HANDED BISHOP'S LEAD TO THE SHELTER STAFF KNOWING THAT THERE WAS VERY LITTLE CHANCE BISHOP NOT BEING A WIGGLY BOUNCY PUPPY, OR A YOUNG ADULT AND BEING BLACK THE COLOR LEAST ADOPTED WOULD EVER LEAVE THE SHELTER, THEY SIGNED THE NECESSARY PAPERWORK GIVING HIM UP, NEXT THE CHILDREN RACED DOWN THE SHELTER AISLES LOOKING FOR A PUPPY!!! OF COURSE THERE WERE TONS OF ADORABLE PUPPIES TO CHOOSE FROM AND THE CHILDREN FOUND ONE, THEY PAID THE ADOPTION FEE AND LEFT, THE MOST HEARTBREAKING PART IS NOT ONE MEMBER OF THE FAMILY EVEN SAID GOOD BYE TO BISHOP. THE DIRECTOR CALLED US IMMEDIATELY TELLING US ABOUT THIS WONDERFUL FELLOW, SHE TOLD US THE BISHOP WAS SO SAD, HE WAS HEARTBROKEN, NOT UNDERSTANDING WHERE HE WAS BUT WHY HIS FAMILY JUST LEFT HIM. "BISHOP IS A GORGEOUS LAB, ABSOLUTELY THE SWEETEST MOST LOVING FELLOW YOU WILL EVER MEET, JUST SAY A KIND WORD TO HIM HE WILL COME AND LAY HIS HEAD RIGHT IN YOU LAP, LOOKING AT YOU WITH EYES THAT WILL MELT YOUR HEART. HE DESERVED BETTER THEN THIS, HIS FAMILY PUT HIM IN AN URGENT SITUATION ONE THAT COULD END HIS LIFE. PLEASE CAN YOU HELP HIM?" WAS THE SHELTER DIRECTOR'S COMMENT TO US. THE MINUTE WE HEARD ABOUT BISHOP WE COULDN'T GET TO HIM FAST ENOUGH. THE MINUTE WE SAW HIM WE SPOKE SOFTLY TO HIM, GAVE HIM A PAT HIS HEAD LIFTED AND HIS TAIL STARTED TO WAG EVER SO SLIGHTLY, THEY DO KNOW WHEN YOU ARE THERE TO HELP. IT IS UNIMAGINABLE TO US HOW SOMEONE COULD BE SO HEARTLESS AS TO JUST THROW A GENTLE, LOVING FAMILY MEMBER LIKE BISHOP AWAY. THIS WAS "NOT" BISHOP'S FAULT, HE DID NOTHING WRONG, HE JUST HAD A COLD AND UNCARING FAMILY. BISHOP DID HIS PART, HE LOVED HIS FAMILY EVERY DAY HE WAS A PART OF THEIR LIFE, HE SLEPT WITH THE CHILDREN, PLAYED BALL WITH THEM, RODE TO TAKE THEM TO SCHOOL HE KEPT HIS END OF THE DEAL IT, HE DID EVERYTHING RIGHT WHAT HIS FAMILY DID WAS WRONG!!! THE WAY WE SEE IT THEIR LOSS IS DEFINITELY OUR GAIN AS YOU COULDN'T FIND A MORE GENTLE AND LOVING GUY THEN BISHOP. BISHOP LEFT THE HIGH KILL SHELTER THAT DAY, EYES TWINKLING, TAIL WAGGING AND WHEN OUR DIRECTOR PUT BISHOP IN HER CAR HE LICKED OUR DIRECTOR'S HAND, MAYBE THIS WAS HIS WAY OF SAYING "THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME"!!!****BISHOP IS AN EXCEPTIONAL, 6 YR. OLD, 65-70 LB. PUREBRED BLACK LABRADOR RETRIEVER, A BEAUTIFUL FELLOW YES, BUT THIS PUP'S TRUE BEAUTY IS HIS HEART AND SPIRIT. JUST CALL HIS NAME AND THOSE GORGEOUS "LOVE ME" EYES WILL LIGHT UP, HE WILL COME OVER TO YOU, TURN THAT ADORABLE HEAD TO ONE SIDE AS IF HE'S SAYING "HI I'M BISHOP NICE TO MEET YOU". HE IS A DEEPLY AFFECTIONATE, A BEAUTIFULLY BEHAVED FELLOW, A TRUE GENTLEMAN, A PUP WHO WILL COME CLOSE, REST HIS HEAD IN YOUR LAP, AS LONG AS YOU WILL PAT OR RUB BISHOP WILL STAY. BISHOP IS THE ULTIMATE COMPANION A "GENTLE GENTLEMAN", A PUP WHO'S HAPPINESS IS JUST BEING WITH THOSE WHO LOVE HIM. HE IS ALSO A VERY SOCIAL FELLOW, HE LOVES EVERYONE HE MEETS AND ALL DOGS SMALL, MEDIUM OR LARGE, WHATEVER YOUR DAY CALLS FOR IS FINE WITH BISHOP JUST TAKE HIM ALONG, HE WOULD LOVE AN EASY LATE AFTERNOON WALK OR IF YOUR DAY CALLED FOR RUNNING ERRANDS AROUND TOWN BISHOP WOULD LOVE TO BE INVITED TO GO ALONG. HE TRULY WOULDN'T KNOW WHERE HE'S IS GOING AND IT DOESN'T MATTER TO HIM, HIS TRUE HAPPINESS IS JUST BEING WITH THOSE WHO LOVE HIM. PUPS LIKE BISHOP ASK FOR SO LITTLE BUT GIVE SO MUCH LOVE IN RETURN, THEY ARE THERE FOR YOU 100%, A CONTENTED, BEAUTIFUL DOG WHO LOVES YOU WITH EVERY FIBER OF THEIR BEING. BISHOP IS GRATEFUL FOR ANY AND ALL ATTENTION BUT HE NEVER PESTERS OR DEMANDS IT, EVERYDAY IS A GIFT AND TIME WITH PUPS LIKE BISHOP IS SO PRECIOUS. AT THE END OF THE DAY WHEN YOU AND BISHOP HAVE SPENT THE DAY TAKING LONG WALKS, RUNNING ERRANDS, SAT ON YOUR DECK AND WATCH THE SUN SET WHEN BISHOP COMES INTO HIS HOME HE CONTINUES TO SHINE, THIS BEAUTIFUL FELLOW HAS BEAUTIFUL MANNERS, HE IS RESPECTFUL OF HIS SURROUNDINGS, KNOWING WHAT THINGS ARE HIS TO PLAY WITH AND THINGS TO LEAVE ALONE, IN HIS HOME HE IS A JOY!!! WHEN YOU SETTLE IN ON THE SOFA TO WATCH A MOVIE OR READ A BOOK, YOU WILL FIND BISHOP CURLED UP AT YOUR FEET, THE LOOK ON HIS FACE IS ONE OF CONTENTMENT AND PEACE, HE IS WITH THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON IN THE WORLD TO HIM, YOU, AND THAT'S ALL THAT MATTERS. HE WOULD BE A DELIGHTFUL COMPANION FOR A SINGLE FELLOW, A GIRL, A RETIRED COUPLE OR A FAMILY WITH GENTLE OLDER CHILDREN WHO WOULD ADORE HAVING BISHOP AS THEIR BEST FRIEND. BISHOP ONLY HAS ONE REQUEST AND HIS EYES TOLD US THIS THE FIRST TIME WE SAW HIM. HE WANTS TO BE A CHERISHED COMPANION, TO BELONG AND BE A PART OF SOMEONES LIFE AGAIN, TO BE LOVED AS DEEPLY AS HE LOVES. BISHOP'S PERFECT FAMILY WOULD BE ONE THAT HAS A HEART FULL OF LOVE, READY TO INSURE THAT THIS TRUE COMPANION PUP LIVES HIS LIFE SURROUNDED BY THE WARMTH OF A HOME AND KNOWS THE JOY OF A FAMILY WHO WILL CHERISH EVERY MINUTE WITH OUR "LOVE ME" FELLOW, HE DESERVES NOTHING LESS!!! WHAT HAPPENED TO BISHOP WAS NOT HIS FAULT, HE DID NOTHING WRONG, HE LOVED HIS FAMILY WITH EVERY FIBER OF HIS BEING, HE DID HER PART, IT WAS HIS FAMILY WHO BROKE THEIR PROMISE, THEY PROMISED TO LOVE AND CARE FOR BISHOP EVERYDAY HE WAS A PART OF THEIR FAMILY, THEY LIED, THEY THREW HIM AWAY AND PUT BISHOP IN A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION!! WE PROMISED THIS GENTLE COMPANION PUP WE WOULD FIND HIM A HOME WHERE HE WOULD NEVER BE THROWN AWAY AGAIN, THIS IS A PROMISE WE INTEND TO KEEP.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

BISHOP(WHAT A STORY-PLS READ!!, a Winchester 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 Winchester, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Winchester.

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