Chesney's Story...
Meet CHESNEY! Chesney came to Labrador Friends today after being surrendered to animal control. Chesney’s mom and dad recently died in a car accident. They had had him since he was a puppy. A friend tried to take care of him, but was not able to continue. He is a very sweet, laid back 13-14 year old black lab. He loved his “Freedom Ride” to our veterinarian’s office. He looked out the window, tail wagging and then settled down for a nice long nap. Once he is settled into his foster home we will have more information about him. Do you have a place in your home to allow this friendly sweet boy to enjoy his senior years?

CHESNEY FOSTER UPDATE!! My family has had the pleasure of having Chesney in our home for a week now. On the first day, he was clearly very stressed. Despite his stress, his happy, loving disposition came shining through, and since then, we've seen improvement every day. Chesney has recovered from his surgery beautifully and the anti-inflammation medication and joint supplements are really helping his stiffness. His eyesight has gotten better -- to the point that he's even enjoyed an occasional leisurely game of fetch (check out the video in a coming post). His hearing had us pretty concerned in the beginning because he wasn't responding to sounds. I still think he sees better than he hears, but even his hearing has improved as he seems to notice more sounds -- though there's still a pretty good chance that he can hear me just fine and simply has a severe case of selective senior hearing and chooses to ignore me. Happy-go-lucky describes Chesney perfectly. Walks, rub-downs, rolls in the yard and snuggles put that extra perk in his ears that let you know he's loving life and has plenty of love left to give. We look forward to meeting Chesney's Forever Home, but my family is going to take full advantage of the time we get to spend with this amazing boy -- however long that may be.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chesney, a Cumming 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 Cumming, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Cumming.

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