Facts about Sasha

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Sasha is a very loving lady. The vet thinks she is about 5 years old and weighs 60 lbs. She loves to meet new people and will let you pet her for as long as you like! She secretly wants to be a lap dog, so her new family will need to decide if she's too big for that! Sasha has a vision issue that the vets think she was born with, so she has nearly no sight but that does not stop this little one! She learned her way around her foster home within the first day. Due to her blindness, Sasha can get anxious easily but with a little patience and a family who makes her feel comfortable she will do great. She likes to play with her foster parents and enjoys squeaky toys. She is currently living with three foster siblings and so far just wants to lay around with them. Meeting new dogs can be stressful for her so if she is going to have siblings in her forever home, it might be best if they were not high energy. It seems that she does not know many commands (ie. sit, lay down, stay) but she is eager to please and will continue working on these with her foster mom. She does very well in a crate and is fully housebroken.

If you are interested in this dog, please fill out an application at www.DLRRphoenix.org. Someone will call to schedule a home visit so you can become an approved adopter. Also, visit our wonderful Facebook page at www.facebook/desertlab. Thanks!

About Desert Labrador Retriever Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Here is our mission statement from our website:
Desert Labrador Retriever Rescue of Phoenix (DLRR) is a non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to finding loving, life-long homes for displaced Labrador Retrievers. In addition to rescue, our volunteers provide medical care and/or rehabilitation for these dogs and then attempt to match them with appropriate, permanent homes. We also provide Labrador Retriever breed and training information on request. Through public education, we strive to help eliminate animal overpopulation by encouraging the spaying and neutering of pets.

Come Meet Our Pets...

DLRR has regular events where potential adopters and the public can see some of our dogs. These events are listed on our website at www.dlrrphoenix.org.
As noted in the description below of how to adopt one of our labs, approved adopters may contact one of our volunteers to meet one of our available dogs.
Also check out our Facebook page, where many of our dogs are spotlighted. www.facebook.com/desertlab

Our Adoption Process...

Every potential adopter (who must live in Arizona) must fill out an online form and pay a small fee. A volunteer will contact the potential adopter and schedule a home visit. If everything looks good at the home visit, the potential adopter begins to receive our Dogalog twice a week that shows all available dogs. If a potential adopter is interested in a particular dog, he or she contacts the volunteer listed for that particular dog and arranges a time to meet the dog. If it is a potential match, we ask the adopter to think about it for about 24 hours. There is a fee to adopt one of our dogs and it is based on the dog's age, with younger dogs having a larger fee than our older labs. There is a contract to be signed.
