Barley's Story...
Hi Everyone! I’m very excited to meet you, I enjoy meeting new people! My name is Barley, just like my yellow color. I’m a seven year old boy who wants the company of my humans and other dogs of any kind. I don’t remember cats but I don’t think they’d be a problem for me, I like everybody! I am a very sweet boy that just wants to be loved. I have a gorgeous, soft coat that I am very good getting groomed – both bathed and brushed. I ride well in the car and I don’t try to get up on your furniture. I don’t think I’ve ever seen or been in water before but I learned to swim over the weekend and must say I really like it. I want to learn new things. I was found as a stray but I know I lived in a loving home in my past where they took good care of me. I’m not really scared by anything – loud noises, sudden movement, etc., not even when my foster brother and sister are, they bark a lot, I don’t. I’m pretty much a quiet boy, except when I think it’s time to eat – then I’ll whine a bit and tell you so. Someone overfed me though so against my protests, you’ll need to do what’s best for me and keep me on a diet until I reach my ideal weight. My new found joy of swimming should help and I walk well on a leash and love to do anything so long as I’m with you - exercising together would be great! I protest a little after being left alone in my crate but I settle down quickly. I don’t have any accidents while in my crate and sleep through the night. I do well in the house during the day so long as you let me out every so often - I have gone in and out the doggie door but I haven’t caught on yet that I can actually use it by myself to go potty outside. I don’t get into anything I shouldn’t in the house. I am very eager to please you and am highly food incentivized so I know I’ll figure out the doggie door soon or learn any tricks you want to teach me!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Barley, 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.
