Dewey's Story...
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 www.DLRRphoenix.org. 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!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dewey, a Phoenix 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 Phoenix, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog 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.
