Facts about Bell

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Hi! My name is Bell and I’m a 68lb, 3 year old, black, female with the best temperament. I’m as easy going as furry friends come. I love all people, kids and dogs. I just like to chill out with my human and get lots of love and attention. Although sometimes I just like my space so I may go sleep in my open crate. It’s my retreat and I love it! I’m completely trustworthy in the house even when you’re not home. I like to play but I mostly like to chill out. I love being on the couch and snuggling in bed with you. I seek out chairs I can sit up tall in. At the meet and greets they always bring a chair just for me! I do have canine diabetes, but you’d never know it. Since I’ve been with DLRR and my amazing foster mom, my diabetes is completely under control as long as I stick to a strict diet and have my insulin shots twice a day. You’d also need to check my blood sugar levels twice a day to make sure I’m within a good range. Initially my diabetes wasn’t controlled by my former owner so I had developed cataracts. The great people at DLRR and their fabulous donors pulled together money for me to have eye surgery, so I can see again! Out of both eyes! It’s amazing! My new owner will need to be committed to taking great care of me like my foster mom has and it comes with a bit of expense. The insulin is about $25 a month and you’ll need to have test strips and such for the little beepy machine which DLRR will give to you. I’m a pro at taking my shot, so trust me it’s easy once you know how. I look forward to my shot because I know I get to eat! If I fall in love with you, trust me, you will never want for another companion. I’ll steal your heart! Oh, and I’m famous ... I’m a Sugar Baby!

If you are interested in this dog, please fill out an application at www.DLRRphoenix.org. Someone will call to schedule a home visit so you can become an approved adopter. Also, visit our wonderful Facebook page at www.facebook/desertlab. Thanks!

About Desert Labrador Retriever Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Here is our mission statement from our website:
Desert Labrador Retriever Rescue of Phoenix (DLRR) is a non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to finding loving, life-long homes for displaced Labrador Retrievers. In addition to rescue, our volunteers provide medical care and/or rehabilitation for these dogs and then attempt to match them with appropriate, permanent homes. We also provide Labrador Retriever breed and training information on request. Through public education, we strive to help eliminate animal overpopulation by encouraging the spaying and neutering of pets.

Come Meet Our Pets...

DLRR has regular events where potential adopters and the public can see some of our dogs. These events are listed on our website at www.dlrrphoenix.org.
As noted in the description below of how to adopt one of our labs, approved adopters may contact one of our volunteers to meet one of our available dogs.
Also check out our Facebook page, where many of our dogs are spotlighted. www.facebook.com/desertlab

Our Adoption Process...

Every potential adopter (who must live in Arizona) must fill out an online form and pay a small fee. A volunteer will contact the potential adopter and schedule a home visit. If everything looks good at the home visit, the potential adopter begins to receive our Dogalog twice a week that shows all available dogs. If a potential adopter is interested in a particular dog, he or she contacts the volunteer listed for that particular dog and arranges a time to meet the dog. If it is a potential match, we ask the adopter to think about it for about 24 hours. There is a fee to adopt one of our dogs and it is based on the dog's age, with younger dogs having a larger fee than our older labs. There is a contract to be signed.
