Important Note

Hi everyone, Dewey here. I asked my foster mom to type something up about me. Looking at my picture, you might notice I am a little smaller for a lab...but is that really a bad thing?! I am 35 pounds of love and fun. I didn't come from the best situation so I am slowly learning to be a dog. I really love to be pet and when people talk to me. I currently live with 2 foster dog brothers who I get along with wonderfully. There is also a six year old human that I love to get attention from. There is a cat here too, but I don't pay any attention to him and I certainly don't have any interest in chasing him. As a young lab, I would benefit greatly from some training. I don't jump up on people but I have taken it upon myself to check out what is on the counter. Foster mom explained to me that isn't polite, so I am working on that. Do you have a patient home that you could welcome me into and provide me with love and encouragement that I need?

If you are interested in this dog, please fill out an application at Someone will call to schedule a home visit so you can become an approved adopter. Also, visit our wonderful Facebook page at www.facebook/desertlab. Thanks!

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.
