Facts about Jada

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
My name is Jada and I'm a petite one year old girl. My training mom and dad nicknamed me "pee wee" because that silly name seems to brings me out of my shell and encourages me to play. I'm timid and withdrawn at first until I have a chance to settle in and trust you so I need a confident but gentle family. I do best in a structured, quiet home and am good with both men and women so long as you are patient with me and have a gentle spirit. DLRR rescued me when I was pregnant at the shelter and I had 8 beautiful pups in a safe foster home. No one knows what my life was like before, but it clearly was not good. Nowadays, I'm mastering confidence-building tasks like walking the high ramp and playing food games that allow me to use my nose. I love to work for my meals and will build my trust slowly with you as you hand- feed me. My training mom will guide you every step of the way to ensure we're both set up for success. She suggests continuing training with me to give me the best shot at building my confidence in the world. Children would definitely be too loud and active for me. My ideal family is an individual or couple who have lots of love and patience. I will love them so much in return!

If you are interested in this dog, please fill out an application at www.DLRRphoenix.org. Someone will call to schedule a home visit so you can become an approved adopter. Also, visit our wonderful Facebook page at www.facebook/desertlab. Thanks!

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 www.dlrrphoenix.org.
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. www.facebook.com/desertlab

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.
