GATSBY'S STORY***WE RECEIVED A CALL FROM THE SHELTER DIRECTOR WHO WORKS IN ONE OF THE HIGHEST KILL SHELTERS IN THE SOUTH. SHE LET US KNOW ABOUT THE MOST ADORABLE, GREAT DOG THAT WAS IN HER SHELTER. HE WAS FOUND WITH A BEAUTIFUL COLLAR, WITH NO TAG AND AS WE LEARNED NO MICROCHIP. "THIS IS AN EXCEPTIONAL FELLOW, HE IS ONE OF THE SWEETEST AND HAPPIEST PUP I HAVE SEEN, HE IS JUST "PERFECT", PLEASE CAN YOU HELP HIM?" WAS HER PLEA TO US. ONCE WE SAW THE PICTURE SHE SENT OF THE PUP WE NAMED "GATSBY" WE WERE ON OUR WAY WITHIN MINUTES TO HELP. GATSBY LEFT THE HIGH KILL SHELTER THAT DAY, TAIL NON-STOP WAGGING, EYES TWINKLING WITH EXCITEMENT ALL READY TO BEGIN HIS NEW LIFE. IF YOU PUT TOGETHER A WISH LIST OF EVERY TRAIT YOU WOULD EVER WANT IN A COMPANION PUP CHANCES ARE IT WOULD BE GATSBY. HE IS A 1 1/2 YR. OLD, 50-55 LB. YELLOW LABRADOR RETRIEVER AND WE FEEL JUDGING BY HIM GORGEOUS PALE HONEY COLORED EYES THAT THERE JUST MIGHT BE A BIT OF CHESAPEAKE BAY RETRIEVER IN HIS FAMILY TREE, TWO GREAT BREEDS, ONE "GREAT" PUP. THE FIRST THING THAT WILL CATCH YOUR EYE IS WHAT A TRULY BEAUTIFUL FELLOW HE IS. HIS COAT IS A WARM, SOFT HONEY COLOR ACCENTED WITH SPARKLING GLACIER WHITE ON HIS CHEST, SO BEAUTIFUL AND SHINY IT LOOKS LIKE GATSBY JUST JUMPED OUT OF A BIG POOL OF WATER AND BEING THE COMBINATION OF THE LABRADOR AND CHESAPEAKE BAY RETRIEVER, TWO WATER LOVING BREEDS THIS IS A VERY STRONG POSSIBILITY. HIS COAT FEELS LIKE VELVET, SO FLAWLESS IT LOOKS LIKE AN ARTIST HAND PAINTED THIS PUP. YOU WILL WANT TO PAT AND RUB GATSBY ALL DAY WHICH AS MUCH AS HE LOVES AFFECTION AND ATTENTION IS JUST FINE IN HIS BOOK. HE IS ALSO A BEAUTIFULLY BUILT FELLOW WITH PERFECT, REGAL, BODY CONFIRMATION.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

GATSBY(SMART-LOVING-GORGEOUS!, a Unionville Labrador Retriever/Chesapeake Bay Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Chesapeake Bay Retriever for sale in Unionville, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Chesapeake Bay Retriever dog from a breeder in Unionville.

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