Myrtle's Story...
My name is Myrtle and I am only 8 months old. I was running in my yard one day and got my leg caught in a fence. It broke. My owners took me to the vet who put a cast on my broken leg but they took it off after only a week and never took me back for follow up treatment. It broke again when I grew some more. One day I got out of my yard and I ended up at the pound. The good folks there called DLRR to come and help me. DLRR got me out of jail but my owners decided they wanted me back. Fortunately, DLRR fought for me and my owners agreed to surrender me. DLRR took me to an orthopedic specialist. My leg bone had fused together and was strong and stable. The wise Dr. decided it was best to leave my leg the way it is. My leg will be a bit shorter and I will have a limp. I get to take walks but I have to be mindful of my leg as it continues to mend and I build endurance. I am learning to walk on a leash but I like to pull and my foster mom says I am super STRONG. I am crate trained but I do like to complain about it and I am mostly house broken. My foster mom does not have a doggie door but I am pretty smart and I think I can figure it out. I have two foster cats who I like to look at and 4 foster dogs that I love to play with. I wag my tail and love to give kisses. I am sweet like Godiva Chocolate.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Myrtle, a Phoenix Labrador Retriever puppy 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 puppy 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.
