About Spring:
Spring is a beautiful girl with loving nature. She is playful, smart and aimed to please. Spring has made a dramatic change shortly after we bailed her out from the shelter. She used to be very skittish and reserved; now she‘s closely bonded with the foster parents.
We placed her with different fosters; she improved tremendously at the 2nd foster home after constant training to socialize with strangers, kids, dogs, and even cats. She may be a bit shy, but warms up quickly and will approach people friendly. Under loving care and structured training, Spring proved herself to be a sweet, loving dog.
Spring was skittish and easily got scared outdoors in the beginning, but soon came out of her shell thru the lead of leash and an outgoing puppy. Spring gradually learned to appreciate the good feelings of cuddling and showing affection with humans. She loves playing fetch and enjoys the companion of dogs in her foster home too. Her favorite pastime is hanging out with dog pals in dog park and her daily walks.
Spring will make a great companion pet; she’s well behaved in the house with no chewing or barking issues, and is potty trained. Please watch Spring’s videos so you know how much joy this girl can share with your family if she is given a chance.

Spring’s rescue story:
Spring and her sister Summer were abandoned to animal shelter by their owner in September, 2016, when they are only 4-m-o. They stayed in the shelter for nearly 6 months until the day we bailed them out. Our original plan was to bail only one dog, but then decided to take them both since they’re twin sisters, and both so sweet and friendly. We arranged separate foster homes for the two sisters due to limited space in each foster home.

Spring is ready to join her forever home. Will you welcome her to be your family member and to love and care for her?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Spring, a San Mateo Labrador Retriever/Shiba Inu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Shiba Inu for sale in San Mateo, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Shiba Inu dog from a breeder in San Mateo.

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