Bode's Story...
Adoption Pending. BODE's life was going downhill fast. He suffered a game-changing injury and was out on the streets in Union City in NW TN. His luck changed when he was found by a nice person who brought him to a local vet's office and paid for his first exam and x-rays. The rescue became involved and a second opinion revealed that his rear leg fracture would require surgery. Bode had a successful surgery and is now in a cast. The vet feels he will recover 100% and will be racing around the yard for years to come. He is a yellow Lab mix who is estimated to be around 16 months old and weighs 44 pounds. He is fully vetted, vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. He tested negative for heartworm. The volunteers who have met him say he is a very sweet, friendly, affectionate dog. One said it is obvious he loves children. If you would like to give this golden boy a good home where he can recover in comfort, please contact us. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Buddy if it means he will have a good forever home. If you are another rescue group, we will waive the adoption fee but you can make a donation toward vetting at your discretion. The adoption fee will help our 501(c)3 non-profit rescue to cover part of the cost of the veterinary care he has received.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bode, a Union City 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 Union City, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Union City.

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