Dezzie's Story...
"Hi my name is Dezzie, I'm a 7 month old boy who is looking for a forever home. My foster Mom says I'm a "gem," whatever that means. She's already taught me some manners: I'm housebroken, I know how to sit, I walk next to her when she uses a leash and even when she doesn't, I stay real close. She said she should have named me "Velcro," but I don't want to get lost and live on the street again. I love taking rides in the car and when she goes into the store I wait for her patiently in the front seat and then move to the back when I see her coming. I love it when she throws the ball for me. She's trying to get me to bring it back but I just drop it wherever I want and she gets it, she's getting really good at it too. Sure I'm a little shy at first, after all I haven't been exposed to people for very long, so I don't trust everyone yet but I warm up quickly. I do prefer Mommies over Daddies (Daddies are a bit intimidating to me, they're so big! ) but I love all the kids that come to visit me. Please call the shelter to set up a visit with me as I am currently in a foster home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dezzie, a Staunton 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 Staunton, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Staunton.

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