Roxy's Story...
Roxy: 4-year-old female yellow Lab/shepherd mix 65 lbs

Surrendered since her owner did not have enough time to provide her the time, exercise, socialization, or walks she needs. She’d been living with another dog (Midnight) for several years and they got along great. Her previous owner reports that she is “loving, needy, kind of hyper, loves people. Likes to ride in the car, likes to fetch, and comes when calls…” but “digs in the ground, barks when excited, barks at strangers, chews non-dogs items (wood and her dog bed), counter-surfs, attempts to escape, has some separation anxiety, and pulls on leash when being walked.” She is also is a bit frightened and obnoxious with other dogs until she is comfortable with them. Roxy knows many commands. She also likes to chase cats. Her previous owner found that she can be alpha with other dogs and suggests she be in a one-dog home.

What Roxy’s foster says: An absolute delight, sweetheart in the home. Lovely disposition. Happy to just lie nearby. Wonderfully crate-trained; Roxy lounges in the crate on her own; quiet as a mouse in her crate overnight… and during the few hours during the daytime she is in her crate. After only two days, she is just starting to romp with squeaky toys and playfully engage our own 94-lb lab Diesel. She is learning how to walk on a leash – currently using a harness… but she gets pretty darned worked up over squirrels. She knows “sit” and “come” – we are working on “stay”. Have not had her off-leash yet or around unfamiliar dogs yet. Have not witnessed any separation anxiety yet, but she does tend to jump up on counters “to see what is going on up there”. No sign of her being a chewer or destructive to non-dog items. Getting 2-3 walks per day and that appears to be meeting her exercise needs although I think she would love to run free on an open space – soon, soon…

What Roxy’s Rescue Rep says: Roxy would do best in a home where she has strong human leadership, structure and gets a lot of exercise. She is current on rabies, distemper, microchipped, heartworm negative, and spayed. She could easily put on 5-10 pounds. House-broken and crate-trained. Roxy is located in Berkeley.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Roxy, a San Francisco Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog for sale in San Francisco, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in San Francisco.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Francisco 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 San Francisco 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/German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Francisco paves the way for another one to be saved.
