MOCHA's Story...
Mocha was pulled from a high kill animal control facility in NC just days before being euthanized. She is a very petite 7-8 month old black lab mix, weighing 37 lbs. She should not get much bigger, but could stand to put on a few pounds. Very unique coloring as her top half is black, her bottom half is a dark chocolate brown. Mocha is playful and energetic, LOVES children, and is extremely eager to please. She is a quick learner, having just been taught not to jump up and to sit - she learned both in under 30 minutes! Mocha's "name" at the kill shelter was "throw out" because her owners literally threw her out, not wanting her anymore :(

Mocha gets along well with the other rescue dogs when she is not crated. When crated, she will occasionally show aggression through the bars, but we believe she feels threatened, because she does nothing but play and romp with them when they are out together. She wants to kiss and hug and play, and does exceptionally well with children considering her young age. She just wants to be loved and played with. Mocha has had all her shots and is scheduled to be spayed on 10/29/2009. Mocha has not had any potty accidents since being here.

The only thing known about these rescued dogs is they were going to die Friday if no one saved them. Temperament testing is done both in NC prior to transport, and here once they arrive to ensure friendliness but no guarantees are made or implied about them as each home situation is different and it is impossible to test them against every kind of stimuli. Most shelter dogs will need basic training and a refresher in housebreaking.Interested adopters and fosters should contact Beata Kinsey (301) 219-2159. Mocha is up-to-date with routine shots and house trained.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

MOCHA, a Bowie Labrador Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Bowie, or seeking a Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Bowie.

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