Facts about Stevie Jane

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Introducing STEVIE JANE: She is a beautiful, large (but slender), yellow, 5-year old energetic lab. She came to DLRR because her owners’ son has allergies. She has only been with us a few days so we are still getting acquainted but it was reported to us that she is not at all fond of small dogs but will warm up to larger dogs of a submissive nature. Cats are unknown. She knows some commands (doesn’t always do them, though) and walks well using a head collar. The doggie door took a day to conquer and she is housebroken. Accidentally alone in the house for two hours (because I didn’t latch her crate correctly), she did not get into mischief but would have cleaned the counters had anything edible been left there. Her large crate is her sanctuary and she enters it willingly and sleeps well and quietly all night. She adores her chew toys and anyone who prepares her meals. As of this writing, it appears she would do very well with an owner who loves to run and hike, in a house with older children, and as the only canine. She does need to learn manners as her excitable nature usually rules.

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.
