Buddy's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Buddy's Story...
Are you looking for a new Buddy?! That's me! I'm a sweet, smart and adorable lab looking for my forever home. I am about 7 yrs young and chocolate in color. I would do great in any family, I like kids and even kiss the cats. I get along with other dogs, although if you have a timid dog my enthusiastic greetings mean introductions should be slow. I am not shy at all and just bounce up ready to play!

I like walking/jogging/hiking, car rides, playing with my toys, belly rubbies, and being with my humans. I know sit, stay, Buddy come, down, drop it, off, and go potty. (Did I say smart...I meant SUPER smart) I will alert you that I need to go outside to handle my business by talking or barking to get your attention.

I am currently on a bit of a diet as I am about 10 lbs overweight, so I will need to be fed on a schedule, not free fed. And some daily exercise will really help, too.

I stay indoors and behave very well when I stay home by myself (I get to go to doggy daycare twice a week too!). You may see me "bouncing" up and down in the window with my tail (ok my whole body) wagging 100 miles an hour when I hear your car pull in because I am so excited to see you!

Please make me your new forever know you can't resist the chocolate!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Buddy, a Steilacoom 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 Steilacoom, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Steilacoom.

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