Rascal's Story...
RASCAL: 6 year-old neutered black Lab 75 lbs.

Rascal's family adopted him from a Northern California rescue group when he was four months old and has loved and cared for him ever since. Unfortunately, the family had to move and his mom's work schedule changed, which meant that Rascal would be spending long hours at home alone. Loving Rascal as they do, they made the painful but selfless decision to ask Lab Rescue to find Rascal a new home and family to love him. Rascal is a gentle, happy boy, who is very accommodating. He plays well with other dogs, ignoring the bullies; he was raised with kids and ignored cats in his former home. Rascal loves days at the beach, swimming, long walks or hiking with his people, then happily settles down to relax with them. Rascal is a very social boy, and while he is trustworthy when left at home, he is used to being a part of the family and with them most of the time, which is what we want for him in his next home. He would be a great dog to take to work as his former mom has done. Like all dogs, Rascal will benefit from clear ground rules and positive reinforcement of good habits. He'd be an ideal family dog, but children should be as gentle and respectful as he is. In his foster home, he has been playing the role of "big brother" to his Fosters' somewhat timid young dog. Rascal has gently encouraged his foster brother to venture forth with more confidence and been a great mentor. Rascal is up to date on his vaccinations, microchipped, heartworm negative and in great health.

Here is what his Foster has to say about him:
"Rascal is a wonderful dog! He is very friendly and outgoing, but is just as happy lounging around the house as he is romping at the dog park. Speaking of the dog park, he does quite well with other dogs as well as the people he meets; he is energetic but gentle. He is very food motivated, so this makes him easy to train! He does tend to nose around a lot when there is people food around, and I'm not sure that he could resist it if it was within reach. He is great with basic commands: "sit," "sit pretty," "down," "stay," "come," and we've already taught him "shake," "up," and "off." We are working on "leave it" and "drop it."

If you are interested in meeting this wonderful and handsome boy, please call or text GGLRR Rep., Kathleen, at (415) 706-5868.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rascal, a San Francisco 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 San Francisco, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in San Francisco.

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