Rose's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Rose's Story...
Rose is an absolutely adorable, 5 year old Labrador Retriever mix. Before she was placed in her foster home, she had the label of “fearful dog.” Rose has good reason to feel unsure of new things. One day her owner said they were going for a ride. The next thing she new, she was put in a concrete kennel. Her owner was no where in sight and all these other dogs were there barking. Rose was terrified. When a person came in to say hello and put a leash on her, she growled out of fear. That was a bad thing to do as she was then deemed "unadoptable" and scheduled to be euthanized. It was a struggle to get Rose out of the shelter. However, we knew she had so much potential; she didn't deserve to die because she was heartbroken and scared.

Since being saved from that terrible place, Rose's foster family has showered her with lots of attention and love. She is overcoming her fears. Quite honestly, except for being wary around strangers, she is the model dog that everyone wants. She gives and receives affection, is not demanding, is happy to play or just sit with you, and gets along well with other dogs. She delights to roll around in the grass at the park and show off her beautiful white lighting bolt on her chest.

Rose has always enjoyed walks, but would just “watch” the other dogs play ball. One day she leaped up and joined in the chase. Ever since she has been a daily competitor in fetch. She walks along nicely on leash. Her prey instinct is intact; interested in chasing rabbits, and sniffing out lizards and mice. We’re not sure how she will do around cats. She was not accustomed to much physical activity, but now anticipates her long morning walks and active play. She surprised us with her speed and agility. Initially she was reluctant to get in the car, but now jumps up with no hesitation.

We’ve been working on teaching Rose to stay in a “sit” or “down” position, She is very food motivated which makes training times fun and effective. She is also working on “crawl” and “shake.” She is house and crate trained (though we rarely use it now), and travels well in the car.

At the rescue she paired off with her friend Sophie, and they share the same foster home, where she is at ease with a large, active family. Sophie would miss Rose, but Rose is quite able to adapt to being an “only-dog” and making new dog friends.

Rose does not get on the furniture, and is not destructive in any way. Her favorite place to be is somewhere near you. She will follow you from room to room and settle down by your feet.

Rose is estimated to be 5 yrs old. She is spay, up to date and vaccines, and microchipped
Her adoption donation is $250 which helps our rescue provide food and medical care to all the dogs in our rescue.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rose, 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.
