Sahara's Info...

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

Sahara's Story...
Hello, there! I'm Sahara! Are you available for a few belly rubs? That's my favorite thing in the world. I just ooze onto the ground to give you easy access! My background? Well, I guess you'd say I wasn't treated all that well in the past. I was discovered abandoned in the desert along with the remaining three puppies of my last litter. Nobody can understand why I was left there since someone obviously took some time with me. I came into rescue already housetrained, crate trained, and knowing basic obedience commands, after all. I'm also great with cats, kids, and other dogs. I'm six years old and a purebred yellow Lab. Now, I know I look as though I'm winking at everyone but it turns out that I had glaucoma and had to have my eye removed. I don't really know that I'm missing an eye because I get around just fine. Given that I had glaucoma, I could lose vision in my other eye in the future. I think that possibility sounds a lot worse to people than it does to dogs as I fully intend to continue to have a good life should that happen. In the meantime, I'm a calm and loving girl who just wants to be part of a family where I can get attention every once in a while. Of course, that will have to include regular belly rubs!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sahara, 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.
