Hoss's Story...
HOSS: 8 Year Old Black Male Neutered 90 Pounds

BUDDY: 5 Year Old Yellow Male Non-Neutered 60 Pounds


The owner of Buddy and Hoss was a commercial fisherman and with no work this year he had to move into his mother’s home. The mother has a male small dog that does not like Hoss or Buddy. He will attack them and hang onto their necks and will not let go. (Buddy and Hoss do not do anything but it is very stressful for the family.) We met the two boys and knew they would be a great fit for GGLRR so we took them into our foster program. The boys are very bonded and will sleep on the same bed. We would like to get the two adopted together.

HOSS

Hoss is 8 years old and has been with the family since he was 3 months old. He is a wonderful dog and is a very loving companion. He loves to swim, loves to play fetch and always seems to be smiling. You can let him off leash and will come when they are called, rides well in the car and loves to be brushed. He is housetrained and has excellent house manners. Hoss does need to lose a few pounds and with more walks and exercise they will come off quickly. A couple of years ago Hoss was running and hurt his leg. Hoss has no issues with other dog and we think he would be fine in a home with cats. Hoss is very gentle with food, needs better leash manners and does not jump on you when he greets you. (GGLRR will be taking him to the vet to get this examined but we think he will need an ACL surgery. Lab rescue will pay for the surgery but we are looking for an adopter who can help Hoss get through the surgery.)

BUDDY

Buddy is 5 years old and has been with the family for the last 4 years. (He got Buddy from his sister who took him in as another friend was giving up Buddy. He loves to swim, loves to play fetch and always seems to be smiling. You can let him off leash and will come when they are called, rides well in the car and loves to be brushed. He is housetrained and has excellent house manners. Buddy is very active and when he runs he can cover a lot of ground. Buddy has no issues with other dogs and we think he would be fine in a home with cats. (Buddy does need to be neutered and we are working on getting him into the vet.) Buddy loves to walk around with a toy in his mouth or a towel. He will cry or whine when you leave him alone but then he calms down. He takes food gently from your hand, he does need better leash manners and he does not jump on you when he greets you.

Medical:

Both will be neutered, have their shots, microchipped, heartworm negative and we will work with the adopter on the ACL surgery.

Both dogs will listen to what you ask of them. They have been around kids and would be great in a home with small kids.

They are located in Novato.

If you are interested in having two wonderful happy Labs call Rescue Rep Liz 415-613-6374 or email liz@jobshopsf.com.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you. When the dogs are in foster homes then it may take longer as we need to touch base with the fosters for updates on the dogs. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week and we do not have a facility that we keep the dogs housed in. They are scattered all over the Bay Area.)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hoss, a San Francisco 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 Francisco, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in San Francisco.

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