Clay - in Maine's Story...
November 2016: Clay came back into foster care with us because he and the male dog in his adoptive home didn't get along. His foster home has a female canine sibling and pre-teen human brother. He is doing awesome, and he also goes to day care and plays with a variety of dogs of all shapes and sizes there. Sometimes he likes to be the "fun police" and interrupt other dogs that are playing but he responds well to correction.

Clay is a friendly, playful, energetic Labrador Retriever mix and is two years old. He is such a great dog! Clay enjoys daily walks and bounds about happily in the play yard, where he is learning to fetch. Clay is a bright dog who already knows the sit command and is learning more by the day. He is so handsome with is gorgeous golden coat and chocolate brown eyes. He is a happy-go-lucky dog with a sweet face that looks like he is smiling at you. Clay enjoys the company of other dogs. Due to his energy level, Clay would be best in a home without small children. Older kids who can keep up with him would do a great job tiring him out!

Clay is such an awesome boy and does so well with other dogs that the shelter uses him to interact with the dogs being SAFER tested. He also interacted with one of the staff's cat and did great! He sniffed the cat and wagged his tail but did not try to chase.

Clay was found as a stray and never claimed from our southern partner shelter. Then he was adopted but was too energetic for the little children in the household. Once he got into a foster environment with other dogs and good exercise he calmed down a lot.

Clay is doing great now that he's here in Maine with another dog, a pre-teen boy, and getting good exercise. He is learning commands, and thinks he is a lap dog. He loves tug of war, and loves having a Kong or antler in his kennel. Clay especially loves tennis balls and squeaky toys.

He is physically strong but we found he's not much of a runner. He likes a normal amount of exercise and playing in the yard but not long distance runs. Clay recently came to a "meet and greet" with us and charmed everybody he met!

We found out a pretty cool story about Clay - Before he became a Lucky Pup, he was in our partner shelter in TN. A family came to see him and they had two very young children, so he would not have been a good fit. The dad wanted to walk him, and one of the volunteers told him how strong and energetic Clay is. He replied that he was a pretty strong guy, too. We found out he is DeMarco Murray, one of the Tennessee Titans!

Please note, we do not have a physical facility where our dogs are housed, they are cared for in our network of wonderful foster homes throughout New England. If you find a dog you would like to meet, our expectation is that, once approved, you will travel to meet the dog in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.

Thank you for considering rescue!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Clay - in Maine, a kennebunkport 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 kennebunkport, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in kennebunkport.

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