Bear's Story...
This little guy named Bear came to us as a favorite pick from one of the animal control officers we help. He is a gentle young boy who is about 1 to 1 1/2 years old. He wasn't doing well at the shelter with all the commotion and since he arrived at his foster home he has thrived.

He loves other dogs and has several favorite playmates. One of the most favorite games is; "I have a bigger better stick and you can't have it" or the big favorite "I am faster than any dog alive and you can't catch me". Sometimes Bear wins!

Bear is a young Lab mix with all the personality and goofiness of an adolescent Lab. He is an accomplished boy and is crate trained and house trained. He is learning to sit from his foster dad and is doing just super.

Bear is neutered and up to date on vaccines. He weighs about 55lbs. He is heartworm negative and ready to go to a new family. Please apply for him today!

If you would like to adopt Bear, please submit an adoption application from our website, and see our other great Labs who are looking for their forever homes, happy tails, and more!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bear, a Boston 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 Boston, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Boston.

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