Gentry's Story...
Hey guys, I’m back! Gentry here, I’m a small, special needs chocolate boy around 1 year old now. I’m loving, friendly and playful, but I’m also a survivor. After a short time in the DLRR Dogalog back in August, I was diagnosed with distemper after my sis tested positive. After a few tough weeks and some extra time in foster care, I’ve managed to beat the odds. The virus has left me with some noticeable muscle ticks/tremors, but they don’t slow me down one bit! I’m housebroken and know some basic commands that my foster parents taught me, but I could definitely benefit from some training classes to help me with recall and to walk better on the leash. I’m still very much a puppy, so ya know, puppy energy!! I’m good in the car, I love sleeping in my crate at night, and I get along with cats, dogs and kids. I also love playing with my foster doggy sister and I follow her everywhere. I’m very attached to her like I was with my real sister, so I really need to go to a home with another dog that will play with me and keep me company. Of course I love my humans, too. My tail is always wagging when I see them and I like to roll on my back tummy rubs. I certainly have lots of love to give.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gentry, 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.
