Nerf's Story...
Umm, Hello? Is there anybody there? Nerf here...the pooch with a lonely heart, no place to call home and to top it all of I am completely blind…oh, woe is me……Ha! Had ya fooled didn’t I? With that poor sad ol me bit..I may not be able to see a thing but I ain’t looking for no pity party! I have one hack of a sense of smell, and I get around pretty darn well (unless stairs are involved!) I mean I don’t let it slow me down one bit, I just go for it! Table legs, walls, door jams…watch out cuz here I come! I’m the happy, social, smart and goofy lab I should be. I just need a family and a warm bed. See, I suffer from loneliness far more than I suffer from my seeing condition (or lack thereof). I love a long walk, a good game of fetch, going on adventures…you know, all the normal dog stuff. I just need a little time to figure out where all the furniture is, and I can cruise around with no probs. I just adore children but need a family with sturdy older kids because I do tend to feel things out with my mouth, so I get a bit mouthy when excited. I’m a really fabulous guy who just needs a little more structure, a little more training, and a whole lotta love…

4 years old-79lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes microchip & registration, neuter, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nerf, a Portland 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 Portland, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Portland.

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