Bear (Neutered)-New Photos's Story...
"Bear" is a handsome 13-year old male Chocolate Labrador Retriever mix who was surrendered by his owner on October 5, 2016 along with several of his best friends who shared his previous home. "Bear" has a chocolate brown short smooth coat, a long tail, and an adorable face with a liver-colored nose, beautiful brown eyes, white shading on his muzzle, and large floppy ears. This older gentleman has a sweet, easygoing personality, and he enjoys attention and soothing baby-talk :) "Bear" walks gently on a leash (albeit fairly slow). He had a flea allergy when he entered our shelter on October 5th and was missing a bit of hair on his back. Thanks to flea medication and soothing baths, Bear's coat is once again thick and a a gorgeous shade of dark chocolate. "Bear" has also been enjoying some of the gourmet food that our HSOV kennel techs prepare, so he has also gained some weight and looks terrific! "Bear" has a soft growth on his chest (which doesn't seem to bother him at all), but we have listed him as a 'Special Needs Dog' for that reason. "Bear" weighs approximately 55j-60 lbs., and he has already been neutered. These updated photos were taken on November 16, 2016.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bear (Neutered)-New Photos, 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.
