Facts about Maggie

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Talk about cute! Meet Maggie. She is a petite 51 pound yellow girl who wants nothing more than to sit in your lap and be hugged. For her age she's relatively calm and will generally lay by your chair throughout the day. She's quite talented at smiling and talking - high on the cuteness meter. She has learned the doggie door, is housebroken, will not go in a crate so don't even try, if you leave a shoe out she will transport it to her bed and gently gnaw on them - so her new humans should probably not leave shoes down in her sight because she still has some puppy propensities. She gets along with other dogs after a period of time so her new owner will need to be patient with her when introducing to dog friends until she likes them. Maggie is relatively quiet but will periodically bark if the neighbor makes noises. She does not know commands and will benefit from obedience training. She does not like to walk on a leash but we are sure that she will pick it up with practice. Toys are not yet her thing but she will pick up a Nylabone to chew on. Maggie will be a wonderful companion and she is looking forward to her fur-ever home.

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
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.

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.
