Rusty's Story...
Rusty is a handsome young man of approximately 18 months of age. He is just starting to mature but still has a lot of puppy energy about him. He absolutely loves everyone and needs an owner who is committed to following through on the training he has received as well as providing his exercise needs several times a day. He knows all of his commands and is still learning to relax in a car. He is determined to be the driver if you let him. He has an abundance of playfulness in him and has played well with many different dogs at his training camp. He is a tall boy who likes to roughhouse with the right dogs and would be best with larger breed animals. Due to his size and high energy, he would be best in a home without small children to knock over. He loves to run, play, treadmill, swim, walk, play ball and participate in just about anything that involves action. If left alone unsupervised, he will find his own ways to amuse himself. He is kennel trained and will bark to let you know he needs to potty outside. If you are an active person, Rusty is your boy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rusty, 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.
