SANDY's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

SANDY's Story...
SANDY is a 55-60 pound, Labrador Retriever mix. We pulled her from Pender shelter because she was a stray with a litter of newborn puppies. Pender said that they had been trying for a couple of years to catch Sandy and was only able to trap her this time by putting her puppies in the trap. The shelter is no place for a stray mom and newborn pups so we took her on. Sandy was a great mom and all her puppies survived and have founds good homes. Unfortunately, Sandy tested positive for heartworms. We had to wait until she finished nursing her pups in order to have her treated. She has completed her heartworm treatment, has been spayed, has been de-wormed, is up to date on shots, is microchipped and is on monthly heartworm prevention. Sandy is a really good girl, but she is very shy and somewhat withdrawn. We had bloodwork done before she had her heartworm treatments just to make sure there wasn't anything physically wrong with her. She does ok with other dogs as long as they are the same energy level as she is which is lazy, couch potato level. She is well enough now to go for short walks around the block to get some fresh air and sunshine which may even help her open up more. The poor girl has been crated during her puppy nursing and then for her heartworm treatments so I am sure she is more than ready to take some casual walks with her new family. Sandy is house trained and crate trained, does not bark at all and she walks so gently on her leash and will follow you with just a gentle tug. We feel that her perfect home would be a quiet one with an older couple that likes big dogs, but cannot handle the energy or strength of other large dogs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

SANDY, a Wilmington 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 Wilmington, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Wilmington.

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