Athena's Story...
Hello world! I am Athena the curious. I am a sassy little lady at the ripe old age of 10 weeks. I love to run around and play with my brother Grey. We learn new things everyday. So far we have learned how to use the dog door and we are crate trained! We even sleep through a full eight hours at night so you can get your sleep too! My mom and dad think it's a pretty great deal. We aren't quite potty trained yet but we are getting better everyday. Since I am still so young I won't get to go to my new home until I am spayed at about four or five months though. I know I will learn lots more before then. I will need a family to be patient with me. A family that can spend lots of time with me and can give me the training I need. I like to play with other dogs but when my foster brother and sister play with me sometimes it's scary because they are so big. I still try though, so I would love another dog to play with. Maybe my brother Grey? I like him a whole lot and we do everything together. I like cuddles and belly rubs but am still independent and love going on adventures in my back yard to find new things to play with. Keep in mind I am still a puppy and have lots of learning and growing to do!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Athena, a Phoenix 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 Phoenix, or seeking a Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Phoenix.

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