Oboe (Neutered)-Photos 10/8/16's Story...
"Oboe" is a magnificent 9-year old male Chocolate Labrador Retriever mix who was surrendered by his owner on February 9, 2015. This handsome big guy has a chocolate brown short smooth coat with white highlights on his chest, a long tail, and a noble-looking face with a dusting of white on his muzzle, a liver-colored nose, and semi-erect ears. "Oboe" has been in our shelter for almost two years now, and he longs for a real home with a family of his very own. Our kennel techs dearly love "Oboe" but shelter life is no substitute for a loving home environment :( We know there is the perfect home for him if we can just find it.. "Oboe" usually gets along ok with other dogs if introduced slowly, but he does NOT like cats. He appears to be ok with older children. “Oboe” would probably be happier if he could find a home without other animals and could be an ‘only child’. His previous owner provided a detailed two-page document about Oboe (which includes hands/voice commands that he recognizes, vocabulary words that he knows, and some of his fears .. windshield wipers, beeping sounds, etc). We'd highly suggest that potential adopters/rescue groups take the time to read through the document since it really explains a lot about Oboe's background and experiences. He is originally a 'California Boy'! "Oboe" weighs approximately 70 lbs. He has already been neutered, and he is housebroken. We would recommend that he be placed in a home with an experienced handler (and would have no contact with cats). "Oboe" is a GREAT dog for the right home. Please call the HSOV at 740.373.5959 or send an email to manager@hsov.org if you would like to meet this special boy. Rescue groups may contact our Canine Rescue Coordinator via email (cr_ridgway@yahoo.com). We can usually help with transportation. These updated photos of "Oboe" were taken on October 8, 2016 when “Oboe” and one of his favorite volunteers (Jo Ellen Gray) participated in a ‘Blessing of the Animals’ Event which was sponsored by the Williamstown WV Ministerial Alliance. “Oboe” was marvelous that day, and we were so proud of our big boy <3

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Oboe (Neutered)-Photos 10/8/16, a Marietta 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 Marietta, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Marietta.

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