Bear's Story...
Bear is a handsome boy looking for his forever home. He was surrendered to the shelter because his previous owner felt he was becoming too protective of the family. This was likely due to Bear having some anxiety. His new family will need to help him gain some confidence and work on socializing him with new people and situations. Depending on his potential adopter's experience, Bear may be required to attend positive reward based obedience classes with his new family. Bear will do best in an home with no young children. He will also do best as the only pet; other dogs can overwhelm him and he tends to chase cats and other small critters. Bear is a very loving boy who loves to go on walks. He will need plenty of exercise to keep him healthy and happy. Please fill out an adoption application if you would like to meet Bear and get to know him better.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bear, a Bellingham 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 Bellingham, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Bellingham.

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