COLBY(THROWN AWAY! PLS READ!'s Story...
COLBY***CONTACT MICHELLE mmay@kylabrescue.com COLBY'S STORY--HE DESERVED BETTER!!! WE RECEIVED AN URGENT CALL FROM THE DIRECTOR OF ONE OF THE HIGHEST KILL SHELTERS IN THE SOUTH LETTING US KNOW THAT COLBY'S FAMILY HAD JUST SURRENDERED COLBY TO HER SHELTER. HIS OWNER BROUGHT COLBY TO THE SHELTER, SIGNED THE NECESSARY PAPERS GIVING HIM UP, AND ON THE LINE IN THE PAPERWORK WHERE IT ASKED "WHY ARE YOU GIVING YOUR PET AWAY?" THERE WAS NOTHING WRITTEN, IT WAS BLANK!!!. THE DIRECTOR ASK COLBY'S OWNER WHY HE COULDN'T KEEP COLBY HIS ONLY REPLY "WE'RE MOVING WE DON'T HAVE TIME FOR HIM"!!! THE FAMILY TURNED NEVER SAYING A WORD TO COLBY OR GIVING HIM A PAT AND WALKED AWAY!!!. THE DIRECTOR SAID COLBY STOOD AT THE SHELTER WINDOW WATCHING AS HIS FAMILY DROVE AWAY, HIS TAIL WAS WAGGING AS IF HE KNEW THEY WAS COMING BACK FOR HIM--THEY DIDN'T!!! IT IS UNIMAGINABLE TO US HOW SOMEONE COULD BE SO HEARTLESS AS TO JUST THROW A TRUE COMPANION LIKE COLBY AWAY, PUTTING HIM IN A HIGH KILL SHELTER IN A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION. THE SHELTER DIRECTOR LEARNED COLBY HAD BEEN A PART OF THIS FAMILY SINCE HE WAS A ROLY POLY 6 WEEK OLD PUPPY. COLBY KEPT HIS END OF THE BARGAIN, HE LOVED HIS FAMILY WITH EVERY FIBER OF HIS BEING, HE DID NOTHING WRONG IT WAS HIS FAMILY WHO BROKE THEIR PROMISE!!!. "HE IS ONE OF THE SWEETEST, HAPPIEST MOST LOVING PUPS I HAVE SEEN. HE IS SO CONFUSED AND DOESN'T UNDERSTAND WHERE HE IS BUT MOST OF ALL WHY CAN YOU HELP HIM?" WAS THE DIRECTOR'S PLEA TO US. WITHOUT EVEN SEEING A PICTURE BUT JUST HEARING WHAT A WONDERFUL FELLOW COLBY WAS WE WERE ON OUR WAY WITHIN MINUTES TO HELP. WHEN WE FIRST SAW COLBY IN THE SHELTER WE SPOKE SOFTLY TO HIM, GAVE HIM A PAT, HE LIFTED HIS GORGEOUS HEAD, LOOKED AT US WITH EYES THAT WILL MELT YOUR HEART, HIS TAIL SLOWLY STARTED TO WAG, THEY DO KNOW WHEN YOU ARE THERE TO HELP!!!. COLBY LEFT THE HIGH KILL SHELTER THAT DAY, EYES SPARKLING, TAIL WAGGING AND WHEN OUR DIRECTOR PUT HIM IN HER CAR HE LICKED HER HAND, MAYBE THIS WAS HIS WAY OF THANKING HER FOR HELPING HIM. ***COLBY- IS A BEAUTIFUL, 2 YR. OLD, PUREBRED YELLOW LABRADOR RETRIEVER. THE FIRST THING YOU WILL NOTICE IS WHAT A GORGEOUS FELLOW COLBY IS. HIS COAT IS A PALE, PALE CHAMPAGNE COLOR IT LOOKS LIKE COLBY WAS DIPPED IN A BOWL OF VANILLA ICE CREAM!! YOU WILL WANT TO PAT AND RUB COLBY ALL DAY WHICH AS MUCH AS HE ADORES AFFECTION AND ATTENTION IS JUST FINE WITH HIM!!! HE LOVES TO BE PETTED, HE WILL TILT HIS HEAD BACK AND LOOK AT YOU WITH EYES THAT WILL MAKE YOU MELT, HIS EYES ARE LARGE, A WARM DARK HONEY COLOR WITH A LOOK THAT SAYS "LOVE ME"--IT IS IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO. HE IS ALSO A BEAUTIFULLY BUILT PUP WITH A PROUD, GRACEFUL STANCE. WHEN COLBY WALKS, OR SHOULD WE SAY "PRANCE" THIS PUP IN MOTION IS STRIKING. COLBY IS TRULY BEAUTIFUL BUT THIS PUP'S TRUE BEAUTY IS HIS HEART AND SPIRIT. JUST CALL HIS NAME AND THOSE GORGEOUS "LOVE ME" EYES WILL LIGHT UP AND OVER TO YOU HE'S COMING HE WILL TURN THAT ADORABLE LAB HEAD TO ONE SIDE AS IF HE'S SAYING "HI I'M COLBY NICE TO MEET YOU, WANNA PLAY?" COLBY IS THE ULTIMATE COMPANION HIS TRUE HAPPINESS IS JUST BEING WITH THOSE WHO LOVE HIM. WHATEVER YOUR DAY CALLS FOR IS FINE WITH COLBY JUST TAKE HIM ALONG. IF IT WAS YOUR DAY TO TAKE THE CHILDREN TO SCHOOL, DON'T LET COLBY HEAR YOU JINGLE YOUR KEYS UNLESS YOU PLAN ON TAKING HIM ALONG. JUST OPEN THE CAR DOOR, IN COLBY WILL HOP, HE WILL FIND "HIS" SEAT, TURN AND GIVE YOU HIS "OK I'M READY LET'S GO" LOOK. COLBY WOULD ALSO ADORE AN EARLY MORNING OR LATE AFTERNOON WALK, HE IS IN TERRIFIC SHAPE A LAB WHO WILL MATCH YOU STEP FOR STEP. HE WILL PRANCE ALONG, HEAD HELD HIGH, HIS "OTTER"TAIL WAGGING INTERESTED IN ALL THE SIGHTS ALONG THE WAY.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

COLBY(THROWN AWAY! 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.
