Sonny and Shadow - Free's Story...
Sonny and Shadow were owned by a young man who died. His mother did not want them and said she would have them put down this the next morning if someone did not take them.

Sonny is your typical yellow lab. He is very sweet, 9 years but still very playful for his age, and wants to be in your lap. He is a robust 102 pounds, healthy with the exception of stiff rear quarters from an old unrepaired cruciate injury.

While Sonny approaches people for love, Shadow, the female black male lab mix is a bit more unsure. He hides behind Sonny mostly in new situations. But as soon as Sonny says, the coast is clear, all is well! Shadow is 11 years old and has heartworms. She is currently being treated with slow kill method and is doing fine. She still has a benign mass on her forearm that is too large to remove.

Sonny and Shadow must stay together. Their adoption and transport fees are sponsored by our sister rescue Adopt A Golden Atlanta. They are sweet gentle dogs that just need a second chance, together.

If you are interested, please go to our website at and fill out an application. Please read our Knoxville to New England page for more information on blind adoptions. Remember, their transport and adoption fee is waived. Also, please note that you are interested in Sonny and Shadow on your application.
NOTE: Adopt A Golden Knoxville rescue doesn't have an actual shelter building in your area. These dogs are fostered in private homes in East Tennessee. Therefore, it is not possible to meet the dogs and pups prior to their adoption. They are brought up north on a USDA transporter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sonny and Shadow - Free, a Glastonbury 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 Glastonbury, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Glastonbury.

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