Zeus's Story...
Oh my gosh! Are you my new furever parents? I'm Zeus--yes, just like the Greek God only I don't have the temper my namesake was reputed to have! I am currently just under 70 pounds and so pale a yellow as to be almost white. When the great people at DLRR got me I had been abandoned and sick for a long time so my recovery is taking a while. I am a laid-back guy who would love to just spend the day laying at your feet and being petted. I get along with every human I've ever met and other dogs too (I currently have 2 foster brothers and a foster sister.) I've been around a cat for a short period of time and didn't really pay any attention to it--but now that I'm starting to feel better if a cat runs I may decide to chase. My foster mom says I'm a "medical needs" boy because I have Valley Fever (a fungal disease that has settled in my bones causing me to limp and not feel good) and stomach issues so I need daily antibiotics to keep me on track so will likely need to be on medications for the rest of my life. I may limp from this Valley Fever but I love running the perimeter of my backyard barking to alert my foster siblings that there's something on the other side of the fence. I adore the fact that my foster family has a dog-door but I'll wait patiently at a door to be let out too and the only thing I'll destroy are my squeaky toys (boy do I love those!) My foster mom was told that I'm about 8 years old and that I need to put on some more weight but I could do that with you if you think I'm the dog for you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zeus, a Phoenix 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 Phoenix, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Phoenix.

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