Sidney's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Sidney's Story...
Sid (short for Sidney) - best guess: flat coated retriever, or mix resulting in same appearance - Male/neutered - young/ 1 to 2 years of age - 56 pounds - black medium to long coat with feathering

Sid's eyes shine with happiness; his gaze is direct, honest and as open as the sky.

A beautiful dog, whom we have guessed to be either a flat coated retriever or a cross between a Golden and a Lab, Sid is as loving and gentle a fellow as you'll ever find. Patient, trusting, and filled with good will and hope, Sid has a big heart and a seeking nature. He attaches to people and to situations with complete and utter devotion. He will bond deeply with his adopter(s).

Physically very beautiful, Sid has a soft, feathery coat and warm, brown eyes. He came to us with a very serious injury to his rear left leg, which he suffered without a murmur of complaint. Thanks to some very kind and generous benefactors, we have been able to have this problem (his femur had been completely dislocated from his hip, and rested on his pelvis) corrected by orthopedic surgery. Thanks to Sid's wonderful nature, a talented surgeon, and nurturing post-op care, Sid is now 100%. And, to watch him caper and stream across a lawn without pain is a beautiful sight.

As one might expect, Sid's generous nature and friendly outlook extend to all creatures - great and small. His primary allegiance is still to his humans; if there is a bit of wistfulness or neediness in Sid, it would seem to be his awareness that he is not quite yet home.

Sid's manners are excellent - he walks well on lead, rides nobly in the car, and is impeccably housetrained. He is responsive and eager by nature, and learns new skills easily. He is a very tactile dog, a trait that extends to his love of being touched and hugged; it is evident as well in his puppy-like delight with toys. These, and his foster mom and family, are cherished by Sid.

Sid will bring the best qualities of love, loyalty and faith to his adoptive home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sidney, a Rockville Flat-Coated Retriever/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Flat-Coated Retriever/Labrador Retriever for sale in Rockville, or seeking a Flat-Coated Retriever/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Rockville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Rockville 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 Rockville 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 Flat-Coated Retriever/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Flat-Coated Retriever/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Rockville paves the way for another one to be saved.
