Joshua's Story...
Hi! My name is Joshua and I was on the "Sleep Forever" list in Nogales until the nice people at DLRR came and took me away. I am a 1-2 year old lab mix that looks mostly lab but my foster mom says I'm really short! I'm proud to say I totally had my foster mom fooled into thinking I was a mellow, laid-back kind of guy but after 2 days of adjusting to new surrounds and recovering from surgery I'm back to my old self with a vengeance. I may be shorter and lighter than my foster brothers and sister but boy do I romp with them! I'm making my older brother share his toys and I like to chase the ball but when I bring it back I stop a few feet away and puppy bow so that you can tell me what a good boy I am. I'm eating like a champ and my foster mom is trying to make sure I gain just a little more weight but not too much. I would love to find a forever home with a brother or sister but as long as you love me I wouldn't mind being an only child.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Joshua, 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.
