ADOPTED ON 11-05-16 - This pretty girl came to us after a renter moved out of the property leaving Sugar and her puppies behind to fend for themselves. So often we hear the stories of how pets are abandoned because people get bored, become lazy, or frankly just don’t care. It is cruel, and the victims are the sweet dogs left behind wondering why they were discarded. Sugar is a 2 year old Yellow Lab mix that took care of her babies like any good mother would. All of the puppies were adopted and now it is Sugar’s turn to find a forever home.

Typical of the breed, Sugar is sweet, intelligent, and loves everyone she meets. She enjoys walks, riding in the car, and laying in the sun. Sugar’s personality is laid back; she really is very low maintenance. She deserves a home that will shower her with lots of love and never allow her to feel abandoned ever again. Sugar is waiting for a loving family to add her as a member. Will you open your home up to this beautiful girl?

Sugar is the best way to describe her and the first thing that you become mindful of about her is her sweet easy going nature---it will melt your heart. She is a dog that is a true joy to be around, it is obvious that she has that typical Lab personality; she just wants to please in every way. She is very devoted to people and she craves human attention and wants to be as close as he possibly can be to them.

If you have an urge to have an instant best friend that is always glad to see you and easily maintained, you really should give this wonderful girl a look. Sugar just needs a good home with someone who will love her and give her the attention she deserves.

This dog cannot be adopted to Massachusetts residents due to new laws regarding rescue
dogs being prohibited from adoption. Please contact Patricia Cabral at: 617-626-1786 or Mike Cahill at: 617-626-1794
for questions regarding what dogs you are allowed to adopt.

ABOUT THE BREED

PLEASE TAKE A MINUTE TO CHECK OUT THE SECTION BELOW: RDVG wants to provide you with as much information as we can because some of our mix breeds you might not be familiar with. The below section on “About the Breed” offers information on some of the Breed Characteristics, Children & Pets, Behavior and Personality, Temperament and more.

It is important to point out that in addition to the breed, there is an enormous variety in the way a dog acts and reacts to the world around him. In the end, your dog's preferences and personality are as individual as you are--and if you can accept that--then you're bound to enjoy each other.

YELLOW LABRADOR RETRIEVER

ABOUT THE BREED
Labs are healthy dogs and generally will live long lives of 10 to 14 years and are one of the most popular breeds in the USA because they are loyal, loving, affectionate and patient, making great family dogs. They are highly intelligent, good-natured, very willing and eager to please; they are among the top choices for service dog work. They love to play, especially in water, never wanting to pass up the opportunity for a good swim.

These lively dogs have an excellent, reliable, temperament and are friendly, superb with children and equable with other dogs. They crave human leadership and need to feel as though they are part of the family and are easily trained. This breed of dog is wonderful with people of all ages, and interacts well with children.

PET COMPATIBILITY
If a Lab has had plenty of exposure to other dogs, cats, and small animals, and has been trained, he'll be friendly with other pets, too. They get along well with other dogs and can easily adapt to live with other small pets.

CHILDREN
Not only loves kids, he enjoys the commotion they bring with them. He'll happily attend a child's birthday party, and even willingly wear a party hat. Like all dogs, however, he needs to be trained how to act around kids — and kids need to be taught how to act around the dog. As with every breed, you should always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.

TEMPERAMENT
The Lab is a wonderful family dog that gets along with all members both big and small, rarely are they aggressive. They are very loving and affectionate and are eagerly playful. Labs have a very positive temperament and get along with most strangers.

PERSONALITY
Lab loves to run, swim, and play with children and adults alike. They are extremely loyal to their owners, hard-working and are generally good-natured, originally a type of gun dog. Labs are extremely versatile and have been put to use in the following roles: hunting, guide dog for the blind, police k9, search and rescue, drug sniffing, retrieving, as well as tricks and competitive obedience.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sugar AD 11-05-16, a Preston 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 Preston, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Preston.

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