Buster's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Buster's Story...
My name is Buster, I've had a little bit of a rough start but that's okay, that doesn't mean I can't have a happy ending! I was surrendered to ESP when a nice woman started off with one or two un-altered dogs and ended up a little in over her head when they started multiplying quickly. I've lived outside my entire life only being inside a brief number of times but I'm slowly acclimating to the house and what it means to be a family member. I am very timid and scared right now, I'm learning very basic things as little as just becoming comfortable with a leash and collar on me, etc. Even though, I'm really terrified about all these new changes, I have never shown a bit of aggression which speaks volumes about how gentle and sweet natured of a dog I really am. I'm hoping to find someone that is looking for a dog that they will have an opportunity of having a great bond with but is also dog savvy and able to understand that I am progressing in baby steps and need to set my own pace.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Buster, a Manassas 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 Manassas, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Manassas.

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