James's Story...
**James is currently being fostered in Houston. His adoption will be out-of-state, which means, unfortunately, meeting him prior to his adoption will not be possible. His adoption donation is $500USD, which covers her flight, a new kennel, and of course he is fully vetted. Because flights are so expensive, the adoption fee is non-negotiable.**

James came to us as a castaway puppy from an unwanted litter turned into a high kill shelter in Houston. While the other puppies in his litter were rescued, James had a non-contagious skin infection which made the hair on his face and legs fall out. He was passed over for rescue or adoption because he looked a bit rough. We however, thought his tiny little naked face looked like a baby sloth and we could not spring him from the shelter fast enough!

While in our care, he has blossomed into the happiest, most loving, little man and we cannot wait to find a family who will love him as much as we do. James is roughly 6 months old now, around 25 pounds (the vet thinks he will be weigh somewhere in the mid 50-pound range once he is full grown. He is a Lab mix (we are not sure what else is in there, but based on his fur, we think most likely Border Collie). He is very smart, loves water, loves to run and play, and is just an all-around happy, fun boy to be around. His skin issue from when he was rescued is not likely to reoccur, it was the by-product of poor nutrition and lack of proper care while he was a pup. Good food, a clean home, and proper care will prevent a resurgence.

James is currently being fostered in a home with other dogs and he loves them all (big and small!), he has also been socialized around kitties and while he may try and play with them, he means no harm. James is a med-high level energy dog, so the ideal family for him will be one that can ensure proper exercise and mental stimulation so that he stays healthy and does not get bored. James is doing really well with his house manners, but he is still a pup and with a new environment, may have an accident or two as he gets used to his new environment. He should be adopted by a family that accepts that he is still young and will need guidance and positive reinforcement to help him continue to develop.

James has been fully vetted (vaccinated, dewormed, neutered, and microchipped) and has no known health issues.

The first step in our adoption process is to fill out an adoption application through our website at www.reggiesfriends.org. Please hover over the adoptables tab for a link to the application. We can generally process applications within 5-7 days and would like adoptive families to be able to take custody of the dog within two weeks of the process being finalized.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

James, a Vancouver Labrador Retriever/Border Collie puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Border Collie for sale in Vancouver, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Border Collie puppy from a breeder in Vancouver.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Vancouver 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 Vancouver 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/Border Collie breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Vancouver paves the way for another one to be saved.
