Samantha's Story...
ADOPTION PENDING WITH PRE-PAYMENT: Samantha is a gorgeous 3 year old Bernese Mountain Dog mix. She is very small for her breed at only 55lbs. So she would make a great kid size dog and great medium size house dog. This poor girl came to the Miami shelter a bit timid and frightened, which is very understandable considering how big and noisy the place is, and always walked with her tail tucked in. She has relaxed a lot and now huge confidence and will jump up to greet you when she sees you. She gets along great with other dogs and when on walks and passes by them, she simply sniffs them as a polite greeting and then goes on her this is a lady with manners! She had an adopter hold so was taken to the WW to wait, but her adopter never did come back. When she was in the WW section, no potential adopters got to see her and then she became urgent – how unfair. Obviously she is gorgeous, but it is her personality that makes her shine. This girl has heart and soul as big as a mountain range and is sweet, gentle and mellow. She will be a wonderful addition to any family. $70 adoption fee includes spaying/neutering, vaccinations, microchip, de-fleaing & de-worming and heartworm test. We offer a 3 week money back (less $10 + $5 if paid on web) or even trade on another pet (dog for dog / cat for cat). This will give the pet and the adopting family time to get acquainted, for the pet to learn house rules, for scared dogs to feel safe and secure, etc. She will arrive on the March 14th Transport from Miami; Updates on our Facebook Page and don't forget to 'LIKE US'! Fans get notice of all our Death Row transports, local and non-local pet arrivals, adoptions, informative dog and cat articles, videos, pet updates and much, much more! If you plan on coming out the day of the transport, please call first to make sure there were no delays and the transport arrived. They usually arrive late morning, but that is a long distance to travel and many things could happen such as detours, traffic, engine trouble, etc. She is one of our dogs from our 'Saving Death Row Dogs' program. This transport is from a Miami Dade kill shelter and many of these dogs were taken off the main adoption room floor and could not be viewed by potential adopters. Some literally had hours until death for no fault of their own...just because of overcrowding, no homes and to make room for new incoming dogs.. But because of this great program and hard work of the 'Dogs on the Move' organization staff, our staff and volunteers that we were able to save these wonderful dogs and cats ...we would like to thank our donors, its' because of their donations that we were able to take a lot on the 'Most Urgent Red Code List'. Do you have room in your heart and home to give one of these sweet boys or girls a second chance at life in a loving home and a 'Happily Ever After'that they deserve? YOUR NEW COMPANION WILL COME WITH THE FOLLOWING -- spaying or neutering (which must be done before you can take your new family member home), all up-to-date vaccinations including rabies and rabies vaccination tag. Please bring a leash with you to the shelter to escort your new family member home properly. *BREED DISCLOSURE: Due to the fact that most of our adoptable pets are strays, we can’t guarantee their breed. We list the pet’s breed as the one that best matches the physical appearance, and the pet may also be listed as a mix when it’s a purebred. COST OF ADOPTION -- Dogs $70 and Cats $55.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Samantha, a Maquoketa Bernese Mountain Dog/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Bernese Mountain Dog/Labrador Retriever for sale in Maquoketa, or seeking a Bernese Mountain Dog/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Maquoketa.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Maquoketa 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 Maquoketa 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 Bernese Mountain Dog/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Bernese Mountain Dog/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Maquoketa paves the way for another one to be saved.
