Muffins's Info...

Muffins's Story...
Muffin is the third and last of three pups that were found tossed in a ditch (Brother Alex and Sissy have both been adopted). The pups grew up in the pound and were overlooked as most black dogs are. Muffins is actually a very sweet and loving girl that will bond strongly with whoever takes her in and loves her. She needs someone with patience to help her learn about the world around her but she looks at you for direction and will climb in your lap at any chance. She is about 8 months old and weighs just under 50 lbs.

Here is what Muffins' foster family had to say about her:

When Muffins aka Honey or Honey Muffins, first came into our home she was very scared having never been in a home before but she showed herself to be a brave girl who craved love and attention. She is quickly overcoming her fears but will need someone with patience to continue working with her as she learns new things and discovers the world is not that scary. She does bond quickly to whoever is caring for her and I am sure will bond very strongly with her new family.

Although Muffins is nervous when she meets new people, in just minutes she is coming to you for a pat. She is very gentle and sweet with the children and although interested in the cats she doesn't chase them. You can tell she had never been in a home before and everything was new to her. In some ways this is really good as she has never had the opportunity to develop bad habits and just a firm "no" and she will stop whatever she is doing.

Muffins does not have any formal training and for the most part we have just been introducing her to the world around her and letting her relax and get some loving attention. We do crate her whenever we go out and at night but with letting her out fairly frequently we have had no accidents in the home. She does use her crate as her safe place however while at first she would bring all her toys into her crate she is now feeling secure enough to just bring her toys to her dog bed. She is not brave enough yet to get into any trouble.

Muffins is such a sweet girl. She spends a lot of time in her crate as that is where she feels safe but as soon as you sit on the floor she is out and trying to get into your lap or at least touching you in some way. She loves toys and loves to keep a pile of them in her crate or on her dog bed. She is good with cats, dogs and kids. Although she is a bit goofy and may be a bit much for smaller children. She has grown up in the pound and everything is new and scary. A flock of geese flying overhead turned her into a quivering pile of goo...but she looks to you for direction and if you are okay she gets over her fear quickly. She would do best in a home with a family who really wants to share their lives and experiences with her. She is learning how to play with other dogs and once she is in a home and feels safe I am sure she will be your typical fun-loving Lab.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Muffins, 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.
