Timber's Story...
Timber is a beautiful girl, friendly, outgoing and friendly with everyone. She is a young girl approximately a year old and will need a home with room to play and people that will help her become a confident and respected family member. She is gentle and quiet in the house but would love a back yard to play in. She currently weighs 65 lbs.


Here is what her foster dad had to say:


Timber is still very much a puppy and is just learning house manners, how to walk nicely on a leash and how good it feels to be loved as a trusted friend. She is a beautiful dog that draws lots of attention wherever we go. She enjoys meeting new friends and is always happy and eager to please. She loves attention and is affectionate and playful with everyone.


She now knows "sit" and "down" and we are working on her leash manners. Her head is smaller than her neck at the moment so we are currently walking her with a gentle leader as she can pull out of her collar. I am currently working on her crate training but she doesn't like it as she wants to be wherever I am. I currently on leave her for 3 hours or so a day.


Timber loves other dogs and always wants to play. She would be great in a home with another dog or with older children that would enjoy playing a game of ball with her in the yard. She would need a good walk each day and a back yard to play in would be best. I don't know how she would be with cats but I don't foresee any issues but she may need some training to learn how to play nicely.


Timber would be a very loyal companion and has a strong desire to please her owner. She will need further training and obedience classes would be great for this girl as she responds very well to a calm, confident leader. She is still a pup and will need her new family to be committed to continuing her training to help her become the great pet she can be.


If you think Timber would be a good fit for your family, please submit an application for consideration.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Timber, a Hamilton Labrador Retriever/Rhodesian Ridgeback dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Rhodesian Ridgeback for sale in Hamilton, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Rhodesian Ridgeback dog from a breeder in Hamilton.

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