Gilbert's Story...
What’s in a name? Well my name comes from Old German definition meaning “noble youth” of “bright” or “fame”. I may be a little past my adolescence, but that doesn’t mean I lost my nobility! And with my luxurious golden coat and shinning personality I can brighten up any room. I can put a smile on any face. Once you get to putting the rubs on my belly you’ll find yourself in canine bliss! I get along with respectful kids, and get along with the other dogs here too! But in my previous home I was the only dog in the house, so I would prefer to have all the love of a new home to myself free from other dogs and cats! I have done this crate training thing here pretty darn well, and may just need a couple of pointers when I get in my new home! What’s that? You were looking for a regal dog to brighten up your home? Well, let me introduce myself, my name is Gilbert! 6 years old-55lbs. My adoption fee is $160 and includes; neuter, microchip, reduced cost Training Class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & Treat packet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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