Brownie's Story...
Meet Brownie and Blackie we believe are Lab/Australian Shepherd mix, brothers, both vet estimates around 7 years of age, both smaller than 45 pounds with bobbed tails. These two brothers have been chained all their lives and when they came to us in very poor shape. Both have missing fur on top of their backs where the chain had rubbed, and the fur will not grow back in those spots. Both lacked vetting and both tested positive for heart worms we are now treating. They both are knee high tall. We tried changing their given names, but they are used to their given names-so Brownie and Blackie it is.

These boys at first were timid and afraid. They did not like other dogs getting into their personal space. Neither had been in a house before, so we had work on that front, and now both house broken. Yeah! Everything was a new learning experience for them. They learned in time, to come through an open doorway. They learned it’s okay to walk on tiled floor. They both learned that having their own kennel inside is like their ‘safe place,’ and they spend a lot of time in there and are now crate trained. Blackie has been sleeping in a bed with a person already and with other dogs and loves it; whereas Brownie seems to be a bit more independent and enjoys his crate! They are bonded to each other for sure, so we need a family to open up their hearts and home to both these boys. They both seek each other out when separated, and adopting them out separately would be hard on them.

They are both learning to walk on the leash, but it is still taking some time...they want to pull to check out things just ahead of them, but that can be fixed with an easy walk harness. They enjoy squeak toys and chewing on deer antlers. Blackie in particular has found out that other dogs are great for playing with and that no one here is going to hurt him, so he has grown at ease. He is a lot more responsive and looks for love and attention now.

Both boys are fully house trained. They enjoy running and playing outside and are very energetic when outside. They will need a privacy fence yard so they cannot climb out. Both can and will clear a chain link fence as well as an outside kennel without a top mesh cover over it.

Their personalities are so much alike. Both are extremely sweet. They both like having stuffed animal babies and carrying them around. These two deserve their second chance so please do share them and help us find them the best forever home! To adopt, please go to http://www.southernskiesrescue.org/adoption-application/.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Brownie, a Marietta 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 Marietta, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Marietta.

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