Nellie's Story...
If a picture says a thousand words, we think this picture of Nellie's face says it all! We think it says, "adopt me, I am fabulous and friendly and give great Labby kisses". Nellie is all that and more. She loves to go for walks, loves other dogs, is playful but not overly energetic, she has it all!

Nellie's favorite thing to do is to head out for a walk. While she hasn't had much formal training, she still does a pretty good job walking along the trail and investigating the new smells she finds. She would really enjoy learning new commands and how to go for occasional hikes with her new family.

Nellie is also a beautiful purebred black Lab and is about 4 years old. She is a medium sized girl at about 60 lbs. She has gorgeous soft brown eyes and a beautiful shiny coat. She is in great health and is ready for her new home.

Nellie is spayed, up to date on vaccines and heartworm negative. She is a wonderful girl and so deserves a loving, caring home. Please apply to adopt her.

If you would like to adopt Nellie, please submit an adoption application from our website, and see our other great Labs who are looking for their forever homes, happy tails, and more!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nellie, a Boston 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 Boston, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Boston.

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