Sage's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with dogs.

Sage's Story...
Sage is about two years old and came to us from another rescue with a few other dogs from the house. We think she is lab/collie but honestly is a little mystery mutt. Whatever she is, she's beautiful! Because she was pretty much used for breeding purposes and no so much as a family pet, she can be a bit weary of people. But after only a few minutes of sitting with her, she opens up into a sweet girl who secretly craves attention! She enjoys the bridge of her nose being pet and will give you a paw if you stop petting her before she decides. Sage needs a home with someone who will take it slow and give her the love and affection she needs to feel safe and secure!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sage, a New Milford Labrador Retriever/Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Collie for sale in New Milford, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Collie dog from a breeder in New Milford.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in New Milford 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 New Milford 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/Collie breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in New Milford paves the way for another one to be saved.
