Baloo's Story...

Baloo is a dog that truly lives up to his name! This 3 year old gorgeous Chocolate Lab mix is a big, goofy, loving bear of a dog that looks like he should be dancing through Jungle Book with his dear friend Mowgli. But happy go lucky as Baloo may look, his story is one of tragedy. Baloo was adored by a man who was truly his best friend.

They slept in the same bed together, spent day and night together, and were inseparable. That is, until Baloo’s best friend was diagnosed with cancer and when his health quickly began to deteriorate, he was forced to move into a medical care facility and Baloo found himself in a shelter; and hasn’t stopped looking for his best friend ever since.

This once fun loving, “man’s best friend” desperately needs a loving home where he can heal from the loss of the only family he knew and live the life he deserves. Baloo does weigh over 100 pounds and so he needs a family that is used to large breed dogs and will understand that although Baloo is full of love, he is also strong and needs to be exercised regularly in order to once again, be the big happy bear we know he can be! If you are looking for a large, fun loving, beautiful dog and can provide the stability, exercise, and reassurance that Baloo so deserves, he will pay you back tenfold with the same love and loyalty he gave his dear best friend!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Baloo, a Santa Monica 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 Santa Monica, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Santa Monica.

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