Lady's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Lady's Story...
My name is Lady and my dream is to have a forever home. I was trying to survive life on my own when a kind police officer found me and brought me to the people at Barrio Dogs. I am now spayed, up to date on all my shots and looking good. I was heartworm positive when I was rescued but that is almost cleared up and I am doing fine on the preventative medicine.

The bad news is that I have a malignant tumor in one of my hind legs. The tumor had been gone for a while but it recently came back. The good news is it does not cause me much pain right now.

No one is quite sure what to do about my cancer. The doctors say I am not strong enough for chemotherapy, as I am a dainty 38 pounds. Some doctors say my leg must be amputated to fix the problem. Whatever the case, I am a brave, happy dog who always looks on the bright side. But whether it’s chemo or surgery, I just don’t want to have to recover from it in the boarding facility. I’ve been there since November and am very ready to get on with my life.

I know that everyone at Barrio Dogs loves me and is working hard to find me a home. I have a very soft coat and what I’m told are the cutest eyebrows in the world. They say I am a sweetheart because I don’t jump on people and my favorite thing is to cuddle up with one of my human friends. I walk well on a leash and love to ride in the car. I am not sure about cats but I get along well with the other dogs at my facility.

I have a lot of love to give and I just need that one person to give me a chance. If you’re interested in knowing more about me, please contact tauna@barriodogs.org.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lady, a Houston 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 Houston, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Houston.

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