Ashton's Info...

Ashton's Story...
ASHTON is a 7-year-old neutered male chocolate lab. Ashton weighs 71 pounds and is up to date on shots. This dog is approved for homes with children ages 10 and up.

DESCRIPTION Ashton is a young 7 years old, he loves to retrieve and play. When we were out taking pictures it started raining he didn't understand why I wanted him to come in, he told me "it's just a little water what's your problem". Did I mention he likes to retrieve. He likes to be petted and has a wicked Lab Lean. He would like to have a family that is active and can give him love, attention, training and exercise so he will thrive. He needs a fence either physical of underground.
Good with other dogs. Knows sit & come. Pulls on lead, better with an easy Walk Harness. Keeping room clean at the kennel probably house and crate trained. Ashton was a stray to a shelter

Adopters must meet these requirements:
Setting: Rural, Suburban
Dwelling: Single Family Home
Fencing: Needs fence either physical or underground.

Ashton is from a rural area and has not been exposed to traffic, noise, or groups of people. If dogs are overwhelmed by their environment, they can exhibit behaviors like excessive barking. To avoid this, for now we are limiting placement to stand alone single family homes in a suburban neighborhood or rural area. As we learn more from the dog's time spent in foster, we will evaluate if placement can be expanded to include a more urban environment and send out an update.

This dog is available for adoption from Lab Rescue LRCP.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ashton, a Annapolis 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 Annapolis, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Annapolis.

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