Annie's Story...
Annie: ~9 year old spayed female black Lab, ~ 84 pounds

This sweet little girl waddled herself into our hearts the moment we saw her at the San Jose shelter. Yes, she’s a bit overweight, but she’s easy going and sweet, and is just looking for a home with wonderful people she can hang out with and keep company. No need for long jogs, no hours of endless ball throwing, just a few cuddles, a couple of short walks (to get some of the weight off) will keep this girl quite happy.
We had Annie checked out by our vet, and her blood tests all came back good. She’s a typical sweet older Lab who needs to lose a few pounds but will make some lucky adopter a wonderful companion dog.
What Annie’s foster mom says about Annie:
Annie settled in to our home like a pro. She found a soft doggie bed and made it her own. She likes to be where the people are and is content to hang out companionably. She loves to be petted (ear rubs are the best!), but is fine without constant attention. She will occasionally talk when asked a question (or if excited about dinner) and as she has gotten more comfortable, she has started to take a bit of interest in toys. She walks well on a leash, but tires easily right now. Annie appears to be housebroken. She is very sweet and has the cutest little tail wag to let us know she’s happy.
Annie would do well in a home with a retired person or people. She’s currently in a foster home with a younger, active dog and she’s doing fine, but it’s the people she’s all about, not the dog, so would probably prefer to be the only dog in the house. We don’t know how Annie would do with cats.
Annie’s new owners will need to give her regular exercise and exercise portion control to take some of the weight off, which will also help with the arthritis. Two 20-minute walks a day would be great (and clearly much more than she got in her previous home!).
Annie is neutered, current on vaccinations, heartworm free and on preventive, and micro-chipped. Annie is located in Los Altos.
  If you have the time, energy and experience to work with a great dog like Annie, and are interested in making Annie a part of your family, call Rescue Rep Debbi 408-613-2044 or email dragonflydebbi@gmail.com.

(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

Annie, 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.
