Information:


5/09/13: Callie is an adorable black lab with just a hint of brown on the top of her head. Her coat is gorgeous and shines like velvet when the light hits it. She was found as a stray and turned into a shelter in TX. She is very playful and energetic, but is also a cuddler. She loves to be held after she has had a chance to burn off some of her energy. She rides exceptionally well in the car. She loves toys and absolutely loves to eat. She should be watched for eating too quickly. We use a mountain bowl or tennis balls, etc. in her food bowl to keep her from eating too quickly. She is very curious and loves to explore outside. She is learning how to walk on a leash and has learned the command for "sit." We are working on others. Callie loves frozen peanut-butter treats and it is her "addiction." Just the smell of the peanut butter gets her excited :-) We currently have another lab puppy at the house and the two of them love to play together. The play can escalate to being rough, so I would recommend Callie be placed with only larger dogs so that when she grows, the play is not too much for a smaller dog. She would love a family with a very active lifestyle that allows her to run and play with time for cozying up together afterwards.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Callie, a Philadelphia Labrador Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Philadelphia, or seeking a Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Philadelphia.

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