Dante (photolink)pending adopt's Story...

When Dante's foster mom is asked to describe Dante, three words immediately pop into her mind: energetic, happy, and affectionate. This handsome, long-legged boy loves playing fetch with his favorite red toy and he loves being next to his favorite people. He has learned to sit and stay when told, and he does a fantastic job following voice commands when he is out in a park running without a leash. He needs some help learning to walk more calmly on a leash. Dante would like to live with someone who has an active life-style and a fenced-in yard or perhaps even safe open spaces where he can enjoy outdoors time with his human(s). While he gets along very well with other dogs and lives with some canine buddies, people are where he's at. Dante is a people dog, although he can be shy with strangers, especially if they approach him quickly. Dante is always in a good mood. He's a happy guy who often looks like he's smiling.

Dante is about two years old. He is housebroken, but dislikes being in a crate. He enjoys gnawing on bones, but has no interest in things like shoes, furniture, or other items he shouldn't chew. He is neutered and has had all of his shots. Currently, he is undergoing treatment for heartworms. He was rescued from a high-kill shelter in Columbus Georgia after he was found in very neglected condition. He lives with a foster family in Auburn Alabama. He has not had much experience with little children or any experience with cats. He likes the human teenager that he lives with a lot and was happy to have taken a car ride with him the other day. Dante will be ready for a new home by the first of to mid April!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dante (photolink)pending adopt, a Richmond Labrador Retriever/Pointer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Pointer for sale in Richmond, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Pointer dog from a breeder in Richmond.

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