Larry's Story...
Larry is a 7 1/2 year old happy go lucky dog that loves life. He is a typical Labrador and enjoys letting his ears and lips flop in the wind with the car window down, diving off the end of the dock into the lake, playing fetch, and getting lots of attention. He's an older gentleman but still very active and young at heart. He needs an active family with a fenced in yard (and would love access to water). He loves to be outside but is also good in a crate. Larry is a very fast learner and already knows sit, down, come, and to "high five". Larry loves balls and toys and always diligently carries one around. He can only have toys, however, that are NOT made of fabric or rope (he thinks these are yummy).

Larry is looking for a very special family that will understand his needs. Larry is affected by a condition known as Progressive Retinal Atrophy. He has limited vision currently but is extremely well adapted. He will likely go completely blind during his lifetime but will still have a great quality of life with the right family to look out for him. Because of this condition and because Larry doesn't always realize he's a big boy he would do best in a home with school age or older children. If you think you might be the lucky family to welcome Larry boy into your lives please apply and we will put you in touch with his foster mom.
Larry is Leash Trained, Crate Trained, Basic Obedience.
Larry is neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, on heartworm preventative, and flea and tick preventative.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Larry, a Portland 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 Portland, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Portland.

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