CHARLIE II's Info...

CHARLIE II's Story...
Talk about s-w-e-e-t!!! Meet Charlie II. He is a stunning young black English Lab with a blocky head. He is loving, and friendly with people and other dogs. We estimate him to be about 1 year old.
He loves to hold his leash in his mouth, lean against you for rubs and just has that wonderful Labbie temperment. He is very sweet and affectionate, and since he wants to be with his people, we'll be looking for a family where someone is home most of the time. Charlie loves water and playing at the beach - while at the beach, he played with any dog he could find, and thoroughly loved running in the sand. He is just the epitome of a water-loving, ball-retrieving Lab.

Charlie has one of those happy, "coffee table" tails - you know, the kind that wipes everything off the coffee table. He knows sit and walks pretty well on leash. And he doesn't jump on people. He rides quietly in the car, but is a bit hesitant to get in so needs to be helped in. Since he's still a young Lab who hasn't had much training, we will be collecting a refundable training deposit on him to ensure he gets all the direction he needs to become the perfect partner. He's just a bit mouthy like most young Labs, so needs to have his own chew toys to play with. We feel he'll do best in a family that doesn't have small kids where he can carry their toys around. Charlie gets along welll with other dogs, and may be ok with cats.

Charlie was brought into rescue from a high kill shelter where he was turned in by his previous family because they moved to an apartment that didn't allow dogs. He is neutered, up-to-date on his shots, and is looking for a family where he'll be showered with love and attention.

Charlie has a very special request that he wants us to tell you about: this darling boy is in need of hip replacement surgery on his left hip due to having genetically weak hips, and thanks to Lab Rescuers, he will get it. He knows this is going to cost as much as $4500, and that LR depends on donations to pay for the surgery and follow up care. Charlie is asking for your help - can you send him a gift by making a donation to LR to help with his medical expenses? Once he's all healed, he'll be ready to find his forever home. Update: 12/23: Charlie did well with his surgery and is on complete crate rest for the next 6 weeks, then very limited walks for another 6 weeks. He is happy to be home now. Please check back for updates on Charlie's surgery and rehab over the upcoming weeks. Update 1/4/11: Charlie had his 2-week post-op check up, and his surgeon said he's doing great.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

CHARLIE II, 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.
