Wellington's Story...
Hello there! My name is Wellington and I am a labrador mix. I am none too sure how I got my name but a volunteer here said that it is likely because I reminded someone of that famous, sweet, cuddly teddy bear named Wellington. I can’t comment on that of course since I am far too modest!
I am a friendly, happy, affectionate dog. I like people and try to make people like me. I get along with other well mannered dogs. I am not sure about living with cats. However, I will likely be able to live happily with them as long as they are OK living with a dog. I am about 7 years mature with a relatively laid-back attitude about most things.

I was found as a stray so not much is known about my history but I have obviously had some training. I “sit” very nicely, I know what you mean when you say “down” and I walk well on a leash. Speaking of leashes, I love going for a walk with my humans. Going on other family outings would be great too. I, ahem, need to lose just a couple of lbs but with exercise, good food and only a few treats that will not be difficult. You will find I will be an enthusiastic participant in the exercise part of the weight loss program but I may try to plead for more treats than is good for me!

I love having visitors so if you are at MaxFund be sure to stop by and visit with me. Maybe you could take me for a walk? That would be good for my figure and it would also help us get to know each other better!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Wellington, a Denver 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 Denver, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Denver.

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