Junior's Story...
Junior! What an adorable boy this is! Scared to death at the shelter you would never have thought much of him if you had seen him. But boy has this boy blossomed in his foster home! Junior is fun-loving and affectionate and sweetness all around.

Though the shelter staff have listed him as around four years old we feel he is closer to two years old. Not much difference, but most importantly, what you see is really what he is - full grown with no puppy issues to deal with.

Junior walks great on leash and gets along great with the other large dogs in his foster home though he can get snarky with the most dominant one. Though he didn't know what a crate was, it only took him one night to get used to sleeping in one and now he is a pro. He rides great in the car too. We have not had him around our tiny dogs here but can test him with them if necessary. He saw our cat and wanted nothing to do with him but cats and dogs need to be introduced properly and not all cats are as dog-savvy as our resident cat.

If you are interested in meeting and potentially adopting Junior please submit your application and pictures of your yard/fence line for preapproval. To do so, please read on...

All potential adopters are expected to complete an application and provide pictures of their yard, patio, and/or balcony making sure we can see the fence line and/or railing. The application can be completed and submitted from our website - throwmeabonedogrescue.org - and is found under Resources. Applications will be reviewed for approval before setting an appointment to come meet and possibly adopt the dog of interest. In addition, those who live in a rental property are expected to provide proof that they are allowed to have a dog where they live.

Each of our rescued dogs has been de-wormed if necessary, de-flea'd (with topical treatment if old enough, and by medicated bath if too young), spayed/neutered, microchipped, is up to date on shots, and has been fully examined by a veterinarian. In addition, each adopted dog comes with a starter baggie of the food it has been eating, a few treats for training purposes, a rawhide chew, a lead and collar, and a folder containing pertinent records.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Junior, a Oakley Wirehaired Pointing Griffon/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon/Labrador Retriever for sale in Oakley, or seeking a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Oakley.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Oakley 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 Oakley 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 Wirehaired Pointing Griffon/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Wirehaired Pointing Griffon/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oakley paves the way for another one to be saved.
