Maxwell's Story...
I’m a purebred Labrador named Maxwell, and I’m so happy that the folks at FOHA rescued me. You see, my neighbors called animal control because they feared my owner was mistreating me. When animal control arrived, they learned that I’d been chained to a tree for 7 years! I received little attention and absolutely no medical care. As a result, I was in terrible condition. I was underweight, my leg was swollen, and I had pneumonia. The county shelter was full at the time, so rather than take me to the pound, the officers asked a volunteer to help me. She took me to the vet, and now I’m getting healthier each day and gaining some much-needed weight. And although I was kept on a chain my entire life, my loving spirit is unbroken and still comes shining through. I’m living with a foster family that includes two other dogs, and we get along well. I bond quickly and I just love my foster parents. I’m housebroken and I love to ride in the car. I’m so grateful to have a second chance, and I can’t wait to find a family that will cherish me forever. (Please Note: I can only be adopted in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. There will be NO exceptions to this policy.)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Maxwell, 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.
