Rosie May's Story...
My name is Rosie May. I’m 7 1/2 years young and I have some super great news. Are you ready? I am ready to find my furever home‼ My foster mom said that I should tell you a little bit about myself so you could decide if you could be my future furever family. To begin with, I used to have a very loving home but then my human dad went to this place called heaven and my human mom got very sick and couldn’t take care of me anymore. A very nice lady from SCLRR came to see me and told me she had this really great foster home that was going to take good care me and help me find a new forever home. I wasn’t in the best shape when I first arrived with my foster family. I was overweight, had some skin issues and my coat was very dull and dry. My tail was missing a lot of fur. You see, my original owners were elderly so I didn’t get the exercise that I need and I was fed all kinds of table scraps (personally I didn’t mind the table scraps but my foster mom says that those are not good for me). Also, I had hypothyroidism that didn’t get treated for a very, very long time and I needed to get my entropion eyes fixed.

Well, you would think all that would be too much trouble to fix but not for the nice people at SCLRR! I got the surgery for my eyes done and boy do they feel much better! They removed some skin tags and even cleaned my teeth. I’m now on thyroid medication that I will have to take for the rest of my life and since I don’t have any money I hope that my new family will pay for it. It’s really not expensive. The first thing my foster mom said was ‘no more table scraps for you Rosie.’ I’m now on a low-calorie, grain free dog food. It has done wonders for my skin and coat. I even grew the fur back on my tail! She adds coconut oil to it because it helps my coat get healthy and shiny. She gives me these long orange, crunchy things called carrots as snacks. They are delicious! I also get cantaloupe, apple slices and yogurt. She tried to give me green beans but I don’t really care for those so I hope my new family doesn’t try feed those to me. One time she cut some green beans up and mixed them with my food. Do you know what happened? She ended up with a dog bowl full of green beans! We go on long walks which has helped my weight go from 122 lbs to 90 lbs. My new family will need to continue to exercise me because I still need to lose about another 5 lbs. She says that for the most part I walk very well on a leash. I sometimes stop all of a sudden to sniff and I’m pretty strong so whoever is holding my leash should be as well.

At my foster home I live with another dog, a cat and there’s even a young boy who I simply adore. When they leave in the morning I spend my day napping on my doggy bed, exploring the yard or playing with my foster doggy brother. I don’t get on the couches, counter surf or make a mess in the house. My favorite part of the day is when they get home. I get taken out for a walk and then after dinner we have a game of tug of war with my orange squeaky snake! My foster mom thinks it’s so cute when I run and stand between their legs so that I can get my back scratched.

My foster mom says that I’m quite a character. She said that I should let you know that I’m a ‘talker’. I think she means that I’ll bark when I need to go out, when a new person is at the house, when the neighbor dog is looking at me funny or when I want you to play with me. However, I do stop when she tells me to and I don’t bark at people when we are out walking. I would do well as an only dog or live with other dogs. I’m great with kids. I could even live with a cat! So if you think you could be my furever family then please call your family rep!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rosie May, a Torrance 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 Torrance, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Torrance.

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