Adaline's Story...
*Adaline is currently living in Houston, Texas with her foster family and is available for out-of-state adoption with an amazing family.*

Adaline is about 8 months old and as with many of our great rescues, her mix of breeds is a bit unknown. We feel that she is a Labrador mix, despite that she’s quite tiny for that breed. She is currently 26 pounds and we expect her to possibly reach 40 pounds as an adult. Her blond coat, expressive ears, cinnamon colored nose and gold eyes give her a unique and stunning appearance.

This sweet pup had one of the worst beginnings that we’ve seen in our program. She had an incredibly severe case of non-contagious mange and secondary skin infections on top of that. She was essentially hairless, her skin was crusty, inflamed and painful. In addition, she was terribly emaciated, full of parasites and dehydrated and sepsis was very much on our minds as her sweet brother passed very shortly after rescue from that very complication. With the care from her foster mom, several vet visits and medications, she has beaten the odds and has become a strong, gorgeous pup without any residual health issues. It’s time to complete her transformation by adding a family to her life.

Adaline is great with other dogs, very playful and puppy like. She would do well having other furry friends in her life either in her own family or regular visitors. This silly girl rarely sits still unless someone is petting her and then she is super content. She is such an affectionate girl and loves the attention that her foster family shares with her. In her current family, she lives with an 8 year old boy and they get along very well. She has been very well behaved with everyone she’s met so far, so we feel that she could join just about any family and be a happy girl.

She is still a young puppy, so she does need a family that has time to spend on training and has patience to get through the puppy stages. She is crate trained, needs lots more practice on her leash and is still having occasional accidents inside the house. She stays in her crate overnight with her doggy bed, but during the day her foster mom takes it out because if she gets bored, she tends to chew it up for entertainment. She loves Nylabones, so those are a great substitute. All of the work put into the first year of a puppy’s life by her new family will benefit her lifelong.

Adaline is spayed, fully vaccinated, microchipped and doing very well in her foster home. She is ready to find her family to complete her transformation. If our little girl sounds like a perfect match for your family, please fill out the application by visiting our website, www.reggiesfriends.org, under the Adoptables tab or email us at adoptions@reggiesfriends.org for more information. Her adoption fee is $500 to help cover the cost of her airline flight and her travel crate.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Adaline, a Boston 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 Boston, or seeking a Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Boston.

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