Connor's Story...
I’m a handsome Labrador Retriever named Connor. The folks at FOHA think I’m likely a purebred, but nobody can be sure. I used to have a home in West Virginia, but my owner passed away and I was left in the care of other family members. The problem is, they didn’t care about me at all. In fact, they stuffed me in a chicken coop and ignored me completely. When my rescuers arrived on the scene, my pen was filthy and I had no food or water. So they helped me “fly the coop” and brought me to FOHA, were I was welcomed with open arms. Now I get plenty of fresh water, good food to eat, and lots of treats. I have a nice warm place to sleep, plenty of doggie friends, and lots of toys, too. There’s even a big play area where I can play with the other dogs here. I’m a handsome, loving boy with a beautiful Lab face. Because I spent so much time “all cooped up,” I’m bit shy initially, but I warm up quickly. I have nice leash manners and good car manners, too. In my previous home, I lived with children ages 5+, so I’d make a fine family dog. I’m so happy that my chicken coop days are over and I can’t wait to find a family of my own. (Please note: I can only be adopted to a home in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. There will be NO exceptions to this policy.)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Connor, a Aldie 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 Aldie, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Aldie.

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