Shadow's Story...
SHADOW: 2 Year Old Black Male Lab Mix Not-Neutered 80 Pounds

(Should gain some weight.)

Lab Rescue is will have him neutered next week.

It still is shocking when we get a call from the shelter and they have a dog they want us to help them with. I ask them the dogs story and they say – found roaming the streets – STRAY. What is shocking is that a lot of the dogs GGLRR takes in with this story are amazing dogs and Shadow is one of these dogs. (I can’t believe that people are not looking for these dogs! A lot of the males get out as they are not neutered and then the owners stop looking for them as the fine to get them out of the shelter is too high. It is cheaper to go and get a new dog – yikes!)

They shelter emailed me and said do you want a gift? I have a wonderful boy – Shadow. (The shelter gave him his new name.) The shelter evaluated him with other dogs and a variety of people and he had no issues.

We have Shadow with a professional trainer and she gives him two thumbs up! >What she has to say about Shadow:

He is a very sweet dog and not a big barker. He does want to chase cats so a home without cats would be good. He can get a little mouthy when he is excited but when corrected he stops. He has had some training as he knows basis commands and he is a dog that wants to please. He knows: sit, down, walks pretty well on a leash and we are working on stay. (When he sees a cat on the leash he will pull.) We are crate training him and he did get out of the wire crate so we are using zip ties so he can’t open the crate. Over all Shadow is a very nice dog and should make a great addition to his new home.

What GGLRR wants for Shadow:

Shadow can be in a home with kids but they should be older kids as he may knock down small children because of his size. He can be in a home with other dogs but they should be larger dogs in case he may want to chase smaller dogs. He can’t be in a home with cats. We want a home that will be committed to his training and get him exercise each day.

Shadow is current on his shots, is neutered, is heartworm negative, has had a well check and is microchipped.

He is located in Windsor.

If you are looking for a handsome young Lab / Mix like Shadow, are committed to taking him to training, to showing him the wonderful world that he deserves, and will be his lifelong buddy, please call 415-613-6374 or email Rescue Rep Liz at

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you. When the dogs are in foster homes then it may take longer as we need to touch base with the fosters for updates on the dogs. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week and we do not have a facility that we keep the dogs housed in. They are scattered all over the Bay Area.)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shadow, a San Francisco 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 San Francisco, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in San Francisco.

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