Abby & Banks's Info...

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

Abby & Banks's Story...
ABBY is a 9-year-old spayed female black lab. Abby weighs 58 pounds and is up to date on shots. This dog is approved for homes with children ages 5 and up.

DESCRIPTION Abby and Banks were turned in to a rural shelter. Their owner passed away and they went to a family member who turned them into the shelter. Banks is a big hunk of chocolate love. He would give kisses all day if he could. Abby is more reserved, and just seems to want a quiet spot to hang out, and get some loving on her time. They are both food-motivated, although I've had a hard time trying to work with them because they get so excited when treats are involved (and I have a hard time getting one without the other.) They ignore shoes, laundry on the floor in the laundry room, papers, mail, trash, recycling, boxes, etc.) While they still haven't really figured out about the dog beds, they don't tear them up either. They are both very easy to walk with a leash on a collar. They rarely pull, and never very hard. I walk them together all the time. They don't move very fast. They have met many dogs up at our local park and are friendly with all dogs and people we have met. They don't seem to know any commands, but are eager to please. They are just laid back country dogs looking for a little love. They are good riders too! We have no cat history on them but they basically ignored the vet cats. Neither of them really knows what steps are so first floor living would be best for them

Setting: Rural, Suburban

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Abby & Banks, a Rockville 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 Rockville, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Rockville.

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