Ned's Story...
Big goofy four year old Ned has a sad story. His dad died and he was given to a family member that really didn't want him. Poor Ned had the worst thing ever happen to him when his beloved dad died and then to feel like he wasn't wanted where he lived next was just awful. Ned went to the shelter and was so stressed there he was going to be put down. We spoke up for Ned and he is with us now. He is at our doggy daycare facility which has calmed him down tremendously. It is quiet where he is and he has his own bedroom here.

The big guy shook continuously the first day, a little less the second day and by the third day was walking on leash and taking treats gently from our hands. He has come so far in such a short time. We are hoping for an adopter who is willing to give Ned the love and care he so deserves. He will need an understanding owner who will let Ned settle in and who will offer Ned a quieter kind of life.

Ned is good with other dogs and is house and crate trained.

He will be ready for his new home soon. Please help us help Ned, apply today.

Ned is neutered, up to date on vaccines and is heartworm negative.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ned, 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.
