Sydney's Story...
Hello potential adopters! My name is Sydney, I am a 3-5 year old Yellow Lab/Shepherd mix. I found myself at a high kill shelter with only hours left to live. I wagged my tail so hard at all the adopters going by, and finally... someone picked me! I was so excited! They took me to the vet for a few vaccines, and the vet told them I was heartworm positive. I don't know what that meant, but the family retracted on their offer to adopt me. Did I not wag my tail enough? Was I not pretty enough? I found myself on my way back to the shelter, back on the euthanasia list. I was so sad and confused. A very special technician at the veterinary hospital decided to try and contact a few rescues before I went back to the shelter, and I got picked! They thought I was beautiful and worthy of saving. I have been so appreciative and excited every since! I have received the treatment I deserved for heartworms, and I am spayed, microchipped, and searching for my forever home! I have gray on my muzzle from living a hard life, but the vet thinks I am no older than 4-5 years old, and other than the heartworms I am perfectly healthy! Could I be the sweet, laid back girl you've been looking for? I am crate trained, house trained, dog friendly, cat friendly, and people friendly. I love to hang out on the couch and watch movies, and I am good on a leash. Please email my rescue today if you might be interested in making me part of your family forever!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sydney, a Richmond Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog for sale in Richmond, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Richmond.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Richmond 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 Richmond 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/German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Richmond paves the way for another one to be saved.
