Buddy's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Buddy's Story...
On 7/17/15, we were contacted about an 8 year old, severely neglected lab who was brought into a vet clinic and the family opted for Euthanasia as opposed to getting him the care he needs. He has lived his entire life in a back yard and the signs of that life are very apparent. Despite it all, he is just the sweetest and we named him Buddy because thats what he wants to be- everyone's Buddy! He loves everyone! Buddy came to us with a massive Hematoma on one of his ears, skin issues and a major eye infection. He was on a very poor diet and received no vet care throughout his 8 years of life- Oh, how that has changed!
Buddy's hematoma has been removed, his eye infection is gone and has been neutered, received vaccines and has been seen by our vet many times. As with many senior dogs, he will most likely have re-curring ear infections and is now on Thyroid medication which he may or may not need to continually take. We understand that this may be scary to many adopters, but we are certain that the perfect home will come along! Buddy is a TRUE BUDDY to everyone! He loves every person, dog, cat and child he meets. He is an incredible companion who is grateful every day that he has been rescued. You wouldnt know he was a senior as he still has some amazing energy and loves to run and play at dog park and the beach. If you are that special someone that Buddy is looking for, please head over to our website and fill out an online adoption application: https://www.theanimalpad.org/applications/adoption
His adoption fee is $150

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Buddy, a San Diego 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 Diego, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in San Diego.

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