Darla's Story...
UPDATE FROM THE FOSTER MOM (9/28/07): We love Darla. Since bringing Darla into our home last week, she has adjusted wonderfully. Darla has the biggest heart and absolutely loves attention, bellyrubs, chew toys, and our other dogs. Her days are spent being a ham, loving on us, and playing with our other two. She is very well trained. As with any dog coming into a new home, she needed a few days to get adjusted. We have been able to teach her the "rules" of our house and she is doing wonderfully. For example, the first few days she would jump up on our counters with her front two paws. After only a couple times of being told no, she has completely broken that habit. Darla loves going on my evening walks with me. She does great walking right next to me and never gets too far ahead or pulls or anything. She has a vibrant personality and just wants to be someone's loyal best friend!!!

Update from the trainer: Darla has been working with a trainer for the past month. The trainer describes her as a "very loving, intelligent and energetic lab". She has basic obedience training and she knows her basic command plus few fun tricks. Darla is very loyal and is protective of the people she loves and her territory. She requires a confident owner with previous experience with dogs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Darla, a Cumming 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 Cumming, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Cumming.

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