RANGER's Story...
Meet Ranger. He's a gorgeous purebred labbie who had an unfortunate start to his young life. Ranger spent his first 10 months living outside in a pen at a backyard breeder. He had no name and very limited human interaction or socialization. As a result, Ranger is very apprehensive of new people, places and things.

Ranger is happily living in a foster home now. He immediately bonded with his foster mom and follows her everywhere. He also loves his foster dad although it took a couple of days for that bond to form. Ranger is an absolute love, soaking up all of the attention and affection that he missed out on as a puppy. When his foster parents talk to him, his entire body wiggle waggles in delight. When being petted, his tail thumps non-stop and he usually flops to the floor for belly scratches. Ranger had no idea what a ball was when he arrived; however he has mastered the art of chasing the ball and proudly brings the ball back. He also loves water; he will take a dip in the pool several times a day and enjoys splashing in his water dish.
Ranger is in a foster home with three other labs and gets along great with other dogs. He enjoys playing and wrestling with his foster brother but really seems to enjoy his humans the most.

Ranger is completely housebroken and has learned some basic commands. He walks well on leash as long as there are no distractions to frighten him. If he feels threatened, he will put on the brakes or drop to the ground. Ranger sleeps through the night on his dog bed, but given the opportunity, would prefer to sleep on the bed with his humans. Despite his young age, Ranger is a low to moderate energy labbie. His foster mom works from home and Ranger typically spends the majority of the day happily sleeping at her feet.

Ranger will do best in a quiet home with minimal activity or people coming and going. He seems to be particularly apprehensive of children so will not be adopted to a home where children live or visit frequently. Ranger has not been cat tested; however, given his gentle nature, he may do well with cats. Ranger requires a home that will provide lots of love and patience while helping him build trust and develop his social skills. When you meet Ranger, he will not warm up to you overnight; however, given time, patience and love, he will eventually become your best buddy and loyal companion for life.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

RANGER, 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.
