Boss's Story...
Boss: 7-year-old male yellow Lab 130+ lbs

Incredibly happy-go-lucky for a guy who was abandoned by his family and left as a stray, Boss joins the Lab Rescue in order to trim down just a smidge. Seems he has skipped the South Beach Diet, the Paleo Diet, or the Atkins Diet… having totally embraced the “See Food Diet” (if you see food, you eat it). Boss’s foster has introduced the big guy to portion-control (what a concept)… and daily exercise and walks (rocket science principles, here).

What Boss’ Foster says: He has such a sweet disposition, and loves to snuggle. Behaves very well in the house. A relaxed, laid-back dude, and very playful. Sleeps through the night. Beautiful white teeth. Loves to be around "family". Not so good on a leash, though, as it seems he wants to chew through them while on walks --he seems to enjoy just carrying them in his mouth.

What Boss’ Rescue Rep says: We could envision Boss trimming down to a fabulous 90-95 pounds. He is current on vaccinations, microchipped, and neutered. Boss is located in Redwood City.

If you are interested in Boss, call or email Rescue Rep Dave, 415-686-4248, david.c.ely@sbcglobal.net.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you. When the dogs are in foster homes then it may take longer as we need to touch base with the fosters for updates on the dogs. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week and we do not have a facility that we keep the dogs housed in. They are scattered all over the Bay Area.)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Boss, a San Francisco 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 San Francisco, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in San Francisco.

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