Crystal's Story...
Crystal is a young, Yellow Lab mix whose owner had to relocate to the east coast. She is a very friendly, gentle dog who is looking for a new home. She’s playful with both people and dogs, but her surrendering owner reports she wouldn’t do well with cats; this was corroborated by our testing her with a cat. Crystal is living in a foster home with a 3 year old and does really well with the toddler. Crystal knows the “sit” and “stay” commands and walks well on leash, but could benefit from additional training. She has the start to be a great dog and just needs someone to work with her a bit to make her perfect!

We conducted an ASPCA “SAFER” dog aggression test on her. She placed highly in all categories.
Total SAFER scores are as follow:
1) LOOK – 1, She leaned forward and made eye contact with tail wagging. .
2) SENSITIVITY – 2, She was active and focused on me. Body was soft.
3) TAG – 1, Stood with tail low and wagging, readily came to me when I ceased moving.
4) SQUEEZE – 1, readily allowed us to squeeze her paws multiple times – factually, she enjoyed it.
5) FOOD BEHAVIOR – 1, did not test this personally, but rated her at a “1” based on both surrendering owner’s and on foster’s descriptions.
6) TOY BEHAVIOR – 1, held toy, but readily relinquished to me.
7) DOG-TO-DOG BEHAVIOR – 1, Approached the helper dog submissively. Tested her against Billie, a confident female, Beta Australian Cattle dog whom she’d never previously met. She was curious and reasonably desirable to know her better. She did not attempt to move too close inside Billie’s ‘bubble’. Later, in a foster home, we determined although she gets along well with male dogs and female dogs her own size or larger, she is quite aggressive towards smaller female dogs.

Crystal is fostered in Walla Walla, WA. Like all Mikey's Chance dogs, this dog will come to you sterilized, up-to-date on shots, microchipped, and treated for internal and external parasites. An adoption fee of $225 will help offset the cost of care. Email mikeyschance@gmail.com for additional information and an adoption application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Crystal, a Seattle 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 Seattle, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Seattle.

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