Buster's Story...
BUSTER: 18 Month Old Black Male Neutered 90 Pounds

Buster’s owner really loves him and knows it is best to find Buster a new home. He works really long hours and has to travel for business and sees that having a young energetic Lab with his schedule is not fair to Buster. A volunteer from GGLRR saw his listing on Craigslist for Buster and sent him a message that we could help find Buster a good home.

BUSTER IS AN AMAZING DOG – are you smart enough to own Buster?

Buster knows: Sit, down, come, heel, drop, leave-it, wait, off, will shake hands with you, has been taught to drop his ball in the water to rinse off the dog slime and he knows a lot of hand signals. (Sit, down, back and right and left.) The owner is gone for long periods of time and he does have a dog walker or company come in to let Buster out of his crate and to spend time with Buster. Buster will jump up when he greets you as he is just excited to have company as he LOVES people. He loves to swim, go for car rides, loves to fetch the ball, Frisbee or whatever you will throw for him. He is great with all dogs, he is curious about horses, cows, goats and does respond to leave it – he knows they do not want to play with him. He does respond to leave it with cats but we would suggest a home with dog savvy cats. He gets out for daily walks, games of fetch and he gets to play with family dogs. He has been around other people who have hunted and Buster seemed to have no interest, he would just lay down. He is great at walking on the leash, loves to run and will walk in the heel position.

Buster is a very healthy boy:

He is neutered, has all his shots – he has not had any health issues. (We will check for a microchip for Buster.)

If you are looking for a well-trained active boy to be part of your pack please email Rescue Rep Liz at or call 415-613-6374.

(Please keep in mind we are all volunteers, most of us work full time and we all have personal lives. I do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient and I will be back in touch with you. When the dogs are in foster homes then it may take longer as we need to touch base with the fosters for updates on the dogs. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week and we do not have a facility that we keep the dogs housed in. They are scattered all over the Bay Area.)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Buster, a San Francisco 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 San Francisco, or seeking a Labrador Retriever 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 breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Francisco paves the way for another one to be saved.
