Evy's Story...
Name: Evy
Breed: Lab
Age: Adult
Gender: Female

Evy has about every strike in the adoption book against her...middle aged, a little chunky, not very eye catching, an old, healed leg injury causing an occasional gimp to her step, and came into rescue with heartworm (treated and healing well). Now that we've listed all her strikes against her, let us tell you why within 5 minutes of meeting her you're going to want her anyways. In short, she is incredible. Evy is amazing with people. She has endless tolerance and patience. She stepped off a long transport ride up to MN, was put in another car for a long ride, and then immediately in the bathtub to wash the filth of her...and in the bath she wiggled and scratched herself against the hands petting her and passed out kisses. There are not many dogs with that level of tolerance and patience. Evy adores the kids though she tends to be a better snuggle buddy than a playmate, she will happily vacuum up their crumbs, share their popcorn on movie nights, and be the best secret keeper they could ever ask for. Evy is excellent with other dogs and cats though prefer low-key pets like herself rather than the pesky puppies up in her face. Even still, the puppy jumps on her and she just sighs and lets him without so much as a growl. Evy is working on her housetraining but was previously an outside dog so the house is newer to her. She crates quietly for the workday but likely doesn't need it once her housetraining is finished up. She loves dog beds, walks, and being with her people. If a quiet, mellow, gentle middle-aged girl who loves to snuggle sounds like your kind of girl, Evy would love you to email us to set up a meeting. Be warned though, she steals hearts!

Requirements: No special requirements

You can email with questions and for a preadopt application. This dog has been spayed/neutered, vaccinated as age appropriate, tested for heartworm disease if age appropriate, and dewormed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Evy, a Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

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