Ellby's Story...
I guess you could say I have had a rough start or maybe a little bit of a checkered past. In my young life I was around livestock and that just didn’t work out. I really loved those chickens and rabbits, way too much, if you know what I mean? My people didn't take the time house breaking me so they made me an outdoor only dog, maybe that’s why I got into so much trouble? I was turned into a shelter and the people that took me home didn’t quite know how to deal with a girl like me and I ended up snapping at
a little one. All that being said, honestly I am a good girl and a typical big labrador in a lot of ways. I am playful and want to please I’ve just never had the right environment. A family with good dog experience and a firm hand will not have any problems with me, I just need some rules! I am doing excellent with my crate training so that’s a great start in getting me adjusted to my new life. A family with older bigger kids will be fine. Wont you give a girl another chance?3 years old-65lbs. My adoption fee is $150 and includes adoption supplies.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ellby, a Portland 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 Portland, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Portland.

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