Leo+Ben-Best Buds!'s Story...
2-1-09 Ben and Leo really are a dynamic duo. When you see them play you know they love each other like crazy. They sleep together, play together, and when Leo is feeling insecure he looks to his buddy Ben for support. These two will add many years of happiness to your family. We'd like to work with you to get these two sweethearts north to safety! They've been through too much now to lose a chance at a happy forever home.

12/11/08: Leo is currently in a temporary foster home with his buddy, Ben. These two LOVE each other and Leo is bereft without Ben. It would be truly awesome if Ben and Leo could be adopted together!



10/29/08: Leo has been living with us since Oct. 6th. It is slow but steady going with him. He now comes to me to sniff me and lick me a few times before fear takes over. He will let me pet him a little and wags his tail for me. He has no issues at all other than being shy. He even walks well on a leash for me. He gets along well with the other dogs, especially Ben. He even wants to sleep in the crate with him. Leo is an expert at finding things to steal; shoes, hats, shirts, underwear, toys, it does NOT matter what it is--Leo wants it in his crate with him. He's a hoarder. It is probably going to be a while before he is adoptable, but he is showing that he can be an amazing little guy!! The more comfortable he gets, the more he shows his personality.
9/10/08 - Leo has gone to a foster home that specializes in shy dogs...we are so thrilled. Stay tuned for updates!
8/23/08: SOMEONE PLEASE HELP LEO! Leo is a special case... he wandered up to a woman's house about 2 months ago and tried to hide anywhere he could. Leo was starving...literally. She nursed him back to health with the hope that he could be a great companion to their 10 year old female Golden Retriever. When Leo first arrived, he would hide under the shed or anything he could find (bushes, etc.). Eventually, he learned to trust a bit more and would come out for "dinner time", etc. However, Leo became a bit possessive of his food with their dog and she really didn't have the time to separate Leo from their senior dog. The woman said that Leo was fine with her kids with time (youngest is 12), but she didn't think he would do well with younger children due to his timid nature.

All of our dogs are at one of our partner shelters in the South unless otherwise marked "In New England" or "In Maine".

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Leo+Ben-Best Buds!, a kennebunkport 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 kennebunkport, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in kennebunkport.

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