DUKE IS A BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL, 18 MO.-2 YR., PUREBRED CHOCOLATE LABRADOR--A TRUE COMPANION---FUN--PLAYFUL--SO LOVING!! WE RECEIVED A CALL FROM THE DIRECTOR OF ONE OF THE HIGHEST KILL SHELTERS IN THE SOUTH TELLING US THAT ONE OF THE MOST OUTSTANDING LABS SHE HAD SEEN HAD JUST BEEN SURRENDERED TO HER SHELTER. THE LAB SHE CALLED DUKE WAS GIVEN UP BY HIS FAMILY BECAUSE THEY WERE MOVING OUT OF STATE, INTO A NEW HOME AND THEY SAID "WE DON'T WANT A DOG IN OUR NEW HOME TO MESS IT UP!!" THE DIRECTOR WAS SHOCKED SHE COULDN'T BELIEVE WHAT SHE WAS HEARING. THE FAMILY TOLD HER THAT DUKE HAD BEEN A PART OF THEIR FAMILY SINCE HE WAS A 6 WK. OLD ADORABLE PUPPY. "HE IS A GREAT DOG BUT HONESTLY WE JUST DON'T WANT A DOG ANYMORE" THE FAMILY SAID!!! THEY COMPLETED THE PAPERWORK GIVING DUKE UP, THE FAMILY TURNED AND WALKED OUT OF THE SHELTER NOT ONE OF THEM SAID ANYTHING TO DUKE!! THE DIRECTOR SAID THAT DUKE STOOD AT THE SHELTER WINDOW WATCHING AS HIS FAMILY DROVE AWAY, HIS TAIL WAS WAGGING AS IF HE KNEW THEY WERE COMING BACK--THEY DIDN'T!!! "DUKE IS AN EXCEPTIONAL FELLOW, HE IS SO HAPPY--PLAYFUL--EAGER TO PLEASE HE DOESN'T BELONG HERE!!!" THE DIRECTOR TOLD US THAT DUKE WAS SO SAD, CONFUSED, NOT KNOWING WHERE HE WAS, WHERE HIS FAMILY WAS BUT MOST OF ALL WHY THEY LEFT HIM. SHE SAID THAT DUKE JUST LAID IN THE CORNER OF HIS KENNEL, EYES CLOSED, HEAD DOWN SO VERY VERY SAD!! WHEN WE HEARD THIS HEARTBREAKING STORY WE COULDN'T GET TO DUKE FAST ENOUGH, WHEN WE FIRST SAW DUKE WE REACHED DOWN, GAVE HIM A PAT, SPOKE SOFTLY TO HIM, HE LIFTED HIS BEAUTIFUL "BLOCK" HEAD, GAVE US A LICK ON OUR HAND AS IF HE WAS ASKING US TO HELP HIM!!!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

DUKE(LOVES HIS FAMILY!!! WOW!!, a Wakefield 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 Wakefield, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Wakefield.

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