Rosie's Story...
GREETINGS! I'm Rosie and am a 9 year old 64 lb. female black Labbie beauty with gorgeous eyes and a chill disposition. I was a stray in Pinal County but have adapted quickly to my foster home setting. I was recently treated for heartworm and our DLRR vet cleared me to be available for adoption just recently and I have no other known medical needs. I know how to use a doggie door and have been trustworthy at home for extended periods of time without a crate. I've done some counter-surfing when my foster folks aren't around when I think there maybe treats to nibble on. I'm a quiet gal, rarely bark and I know a few commands and am good on the leash but I don't know if I like to swim or if I am cat friendly. I am dog- friendly with my foster families cocker spaniel and 7 month old foster labbie gal. I'm good with kids and other strangers that I have met so far. I enjoy belly rubs and taking daily walks but mostly just like to be around humans. I'm not much for chewing anything but I REALLY enjoy doggie treats while trying to learn new commands (cuz I really want make my family proud), but I do like my Kong with some treats and peanut butter in it. I was a good girl when I visited the local PetsMart store recently and "sat" upon command of a stranger who was smitten with me a bit I think. Please consider opening your heart and home to a senior doggie like me, we are soooo worth it and have soooo much affection to give! Don't forget we DLRR labbies are microchipped and vetted.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rosie, 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.
