Ivy's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Ivy's Story...
I am a 6 month old black lab mix with a beautiful coat of velvet. I have an English lab build, so I will not be the long leggy type. I am on the calmer side for a puppy my age but don't let that fool you ... I will still need a lot of training to be the great girl I deserve to be. I need to be crated until I am trustworthy in the house when you are gone and need supervision while you are home with me. I get along wonderfully with my 13 year old black lab foster brother and 10 year old 11 pound Foster sister. I am very respectful of their space because I know they are passed the playing stage of life. I tend to be the submissive type. I just follow them around and wag my tail and lick their faces. I love my young 2 legged kids in the house. I love to play with them and love when they throw things for me to fetch. I especially love all stuffed toys ... even ones that are not meant for dogs. I correct easily and am housebroken already. I might need a refresher course when I come live with you. I am not food aggressive. I release things from my mouth fairly softly when I have grabbed something I am not suppose to chew. I crate quietly when my Foster family leaves for short times. I sleep quietly in the crate all night, as long as my crate is in your bedroom. I am not a barker but instead a quiet girl unlike my Foster siblings. I am learning sit and wait before I eat and go out the door. I have not been trained on a leash yet, so I will need your guidance. I love attention and I am looking for a house with very affectionate people because I am a lover and lap dog. I also would love a kid or two to grow up with and maybe a dog to play with. I also need exercise, so a walking partner is a must and someone who will take me to training and isn't gone for long periods of time during the day. I want to be a part of a family and experience all life has to offer. My Foster family thinks the world of me and promised me that I will be able to find what I am looking for!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ivy, 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.
