Abraham's Story...
Meet Abraham!

Abraham is absolutely breathtaking with his shiny, jet black coat and amber eyes. He is most likely 98% Labrador with 2% staffordshire because of his muscular physique. He is 65 lbs and just the perfect size for a bear hug! We estimate Abe to be between 1 1/2 and 2 years old and has an abundance of energy outside and is a gentleman in the house and keeps himself busy with his rope bone.

We know that at some point in his life he was shown kindness and never forgot that. Abraham tends to wiggle his whole entire body when he meets people and is the happiest and most fun dog there is! He absolutely loves his"Jolly Ball" and can keep himself amused with it for hours if you let him. He will even throw it for himself! If you come to meet Abraham, you will be sure to fall in love with this goofy boy! Abraham is great wit

He is very playful with most other dogs, however most dominant males do not seem to like him and he is leery of them as well. Abe shows a little too much interest in cats, so he would do best in a feline-free home.

Abraham did test positive for heart-worms but is in the midst of treatment and doing fabulously! Heart-worms are only transmitted by a mosquitoes and are NOT simply contagious to other dogs through saliva or blood. Keeping your dog on prevention is imperative to keeping your dog heart-worm negative. Fortunately, heart worms are treatable and preventable. Please contact us if you would like more information to understand heart-worms better and Abraham's current treatment, which is covered by RARE and no additional cost to his adopter. Abraham deserves to be adopted and is looking forward to being heart-worm free!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Abraham, a Franklin 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 Franklin, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Franklin.

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