Sydney5's Story...
Howdy Families, My name is Oliver and I am a happy go lucky nine year old Labrador Shepherd mix who was found roaming the hills one rainy night in February. A super nice lady saw me outside in the rain and said that I could come and stay at her house for a little while. She is a real nice foster mom and I was pretty lucky that she found me 'cause it turned out I needed some serious medical attention.
This nice lady talked about me to all of her nice friends and they raised enough money to get me the surgery that I needed. Those people raised over two thousand dollars to help get me fixed up - WOW!!! The Doc's took nine fatty tumors off of my neck and my tummy (no cancer thank goodness) and they pulled out eleven of my teeth, whoa daddy!! Them's a whole lot of teeth.

The nice lady let me come back to her house so that I could 'recuperate' (that is a new fancy word that I have learned since livin' the good life in a warm safe house). The problem is the nice lady has two kitty cats and the house just ain't big enough for the three of us. Since them kitties have been livin' with the lady for a gosh darn long time it just wouldn't be right for me to ask them to git up and go so I need to find a place to live. The nice lady says no way am I going to go back out onto the street or to the shelter.

I get along so good with other dogs and with people of all shapes and sizes. A lady from the rescue came out and did something called an evaluation of me and said that I passed with flying colors. I am a giant love bug who just wants to hang out with my people.

I have a little bit of arthritis but other than that my blood work came out great when the doc's checked it out. I am up to date on all of my shots and microchipped and neutered and everything I will even get to go home with some super nice accoutrements (that is another one them fancy words a just learned) like a fancy collar and leash and a harness and my favorite toy. I am still recovering from my surgeries but once I am all healed up I should be an easy breezy fur baby for a nice low key family. I love to take walks and I am totally housebroken (gosh all mighty, even an old street dog like me knows it isn't polite to go potty in the house). I sleep real nice all night on a big soft bed on the floor next to my people and I just love to get cuddles. I would love it if someone was home during the day with me, I done spent a lot of time by myself in this big old world and like that pretty girl on American Idol said the other night 'I don't want to be all by myself anymore'.

My only real requirements is that there are no kitties living with you and that you have some love to share with an old timer that has had a bit of a hard life. I think it would be super nice to live with another doggie but I can live by myself with my people as well. If you are looking for a sweet gentle boy who will be your best friend then look no further - you done found me! Be well families I look forward to making your acquaintance's (there I go throwing around another one of them fancy words). Yours Truly, Oliver

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sydney5, a Torrance 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 Torrance, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Torrance.

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