Charlie's Story...
Charlie is SUPER sweet, but extremely timid. When we first took him in, he had not ever been walked on a leash, but he's already doing much better. He will definitely require a lot of patience and love to warm up to his new family, but he definitely will. The process will be much faster with children and women than with me. While it may seem counter-intuitive for an extremely shy dog, Charlie does much better with children than he does with adults. He loves kids and will let them pet him all day as long as the children are not harsh with him. We have had him for a month now and he is starting to come out of his shell a lot more, and we have discovered that Charlie loves to cuddle on the couch. Charlie is one amazing dog, but you must be patient and willing to work with him because of his shyness. Pardon his last picture - he just had a bath!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Charlie, a Norwich Labrador Retriever/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Labrador Retriever for sale in Norwich, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Norwich.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Norwich 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 Norwich 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/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Norwich paves the way for another one to be saved.
