I am sure you are all wondering about my beautiful color....I am the new SILVER and my coat is thick and wavy. I was a stray and saved from the e-list because I was afraid. Well my foster family has seen another side of me and I am not afraid at all. Some of my qualities are, housebroken, not food aggressive, take treats gently, don't go on the furniture but sometimes I like to sleep with you but only for a very short time and then I leave, sleep all night on my bed in your room, I know sit, come, stay and I sure love kisses, belly rubs and being brushed. I like playing and taking walks with my furry foster sister and then napping together. Of course no one is perfect and I need some help with.....counter surfing, trash picking, how to get in the car and not crate trained. I really would love a family where someone is home with me most of the time.

About Desert Labrador Retriever Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Here is our mission statement from our website:
Desert Labrador Retriever Rescue of Phoenix (DLRR) is a non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to finding loving, life-long homes for displaced Labrador Retrievers. In addition to rescue, our volunteers provide medical care and/or rehabilitation for these dogs and then attempt to match them with appropriate, permanent homes. We also provide Labrador Retriever breed and training information on request. Through public education, we strive to help eliminate animal overpopulation by encouraging the spaying and neutering of pets.

Come Meet Our Pets...

DLRR has regular events where potential adopters and the public can see some of our dogs. These events are listed on our website at
As noted in the description below of how to adopt one of our labs, approved adopters may contact one of our volunteers to meet one of our available dogs.
Also check out our Facebook page, where many of our dogs are spotlighted.

Our Adoption Process...

Every potential adopter (who must live in Arizona) must fill out an online form and pay a small fee. A volunteer will contact the potential adopter and schedule a home visit. If everything looks good at the home visit, the potential adopter begins to receive our Dogalog twice a week that shows all available dogs. If a potential adopter is interested in a particular dog, he or she contacts the volunteer listed for that particular dog and arranges a time to meet the dog. If it is a potential match, we ask the adopter to think about it for about 24 hours. There is a fee to adopt one of our dogs and it is based on the dog's age, with younger dogs having a larger fee than our older labs. There is a contract to be signed.
