EMILY's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and not good with cats.

EMILY's Story...
What’s in a name? If our Emily is anything like the Greek origin of "Emily' which is 'Amalia', she is “friendly and tender.” Sounds right to us!
I’d like to believe Emily Dickinson is her namesake. “Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, and sings the tunes without the words, and never stops at all.”
Emily never lost her hope when she was at a high kill shelter, and once she was safe, her shyness melted away to reveal a very pretty, sweet girl. She’s petite, at about 50-55 pounds. She has plenty of time left for her to write poetry of her own about the wonderful family who adopts her. Could that be your family?

She absolutely loves other dogs, and will follow them around constantly. Emily still acts like a puppy (although she is housetrained!), and loves to chew on her Kong, and to play with balls and other toys. She stays in a crate about 4 hours per day and does fine. She is cat curious meaning that she’ll chase but hasn’t hurt any. She’ll do best in a home with another dog and where someone is home a fair amount of the time. She is a great runner and would love a daily run with her new human partner - and with her agile little body, she can really jump, so 5 ft. plus fences only! Emily is loving and sweet, and happy to give kisses. She's looking for a family that will give her lots of love to continue bringing out her sweet personality; she’s been hoping for a home like you and if you’re it please don’t wait to make her dreams come true!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

EMILY, a San Diego 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 San Diego, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in San Diego.

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