Gretchen's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Gretchen's Story...
I am Gretchen and I'm so grateful to be in rescue. I've spent all of my two and a half years being a mama. The vets suggest I've had numerous litters. My latest batch of babies are being cared for in a great RROC foster home and they will soon be old enough to go to carefully screened new homes. That means I'm ready to find a new home, too! I'm just a little girl, at 50 lbs, and my tail never stops wagging. I'm housetrained, crate trained, and just fine with other dogs and with cats. There aren't kids in my foster home but everyone thinks I'd be a perfect lady around children. I don't know any commands at all because my previous owner didn't think that was important when just producing puppies for him to sell. I'm smart and I want so much to please that I will pick up whatever you want me to learn. After all, I'm a yellow Lab! I'm sweet and calm. I just can't stop grinning at being in rescue, knowing I'll never have to have more litters. I am so excited to meet people who will appreciate me just for myself!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gretchen, a Evergreen 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 Evergreen, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Evergreen.

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