Buddy's Story...
Buddy is a young adult male approximately 2 – 3 years old. He is a tall, handsome dog who loves everyone. Friendly with family and strangers alike, Buddy would be an ideal family companion. He weighs 66 lbs.

Here is what Buddy’s foster mom had to say about him:

Buddy is a really good dog. He is happy, playful, well-adjusted and easy-going. He has a handsome, intelligent face with a sleek, strong body and a lovely coat.

Buddy is friendly with people of all ages and he gets a lot of attention when we are out on walks because of his sweet nature and friendly disposition towards strangers. He welcomes everyone into the home and is always eager to meet new friends. He loves playing with other dogs but would be best suited to dogs his size as he may be a bit too much for the wee ones. He is an athletic dog who loves to run and jump and play with his toys.

He is completely house trained and crate trained. He rarely barks unless there is a good reason and welcomes strangers into the home so he wouldn’t be much of a guard dog. He is an affectionate dog who loves attention and really enjoys a good cuddle.

He knows his basic commands such as “sit”, and has very good recall when I tell him to come. He is quite obedient despite his young age. He will stay behind a baby-gate barrier I set up even though he could easily push it out of the way or jump over it and when I told him to “stay” at the top of the basement stairs he obeyed even though he wanted to follow me down. He walks very nicely on leash and is so friendly with everyone that it is a joy to take him out. He enjoys being out in the backyard and running around but responds quickly when I say “come in”. He has never attempted to get out of the yard either and he doesn’t dig or cause any problems there.

I have left him alone in the home uncrated and he has never gotten into anything. At night I crate him and he goes in just fine and sleeps well for the entire night. I don’t think he would need to be crated at all in his new home.

Buddy is just a really well behaved and happy dog with a sunny disposition and a welcoming, eager to please personality. He will make an excellent family pet and would love a home with children to play with and a backyard to run around in. He would be great as an only dog or as a companion to another respectful dog. He is also good with my cat. He would love to have trips to the dog park or play dates with other dog friends, can easily be taken with you wherever you go and will always be inviting strangers into his life. Buddy is just an all around great dog.

If you think Buddy would make a good addition to your family, please go to our website at and submit an application for consideration.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Buddy, a Hamilton 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 Hamilton, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Hamilton.

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