Shadow Dawg's Story...
2013-06-05: Hello Families. My name is Shadow Dawg! I know what you are thinking; is he really a shadow? No silly’s I am SCLRR’s very sweet, three year old, sixty pound, black Lab mix.
SCLRR saved me from a local shelter on my very last day. I don’t know exactly what that means but I really appreciate them for getting me out of there, it was a scary place.

At my foster house I live with three other dogs and they are all nice, even though they don’t want to play with me. My foster mom says they are grumpy because they are older. I do have a lot of energy and I like to play with other dogs but I also respect the elderly and leave them alone when they want me to. When I go to live in my forever home I would love to live with another dog that I can play with. I have met some dogs at the park that like playing with me so I am happy with that. I know my manners and I am submissive with other dogs and I will go away if a dog is aggressive with me.

My foster mom says that I am a good boy. I do not destroy things like some Labs but I still have all of the bouncy playful energy that most young Labs have. Like most Labs I am a counter surfer I need to check things out and see if there is any food left unattended. I just want to make sure that no food will be wasted!!!

My foster mom says I am a medium to high energy dog so an active family would be great for me. I should be placed with kids over the age of 8 since I am still bouncy like a puppy. I really love to play frisbee and I am fast as the wind.

I am crate trained and even though I would prefer to be with a person at ALL times, I will go in my crate when I am asked to. I know sit and stay and I will do anything for a treat. I never ever go potty in the house; I heard that is a big NO-NO so I am a good boy at that.
My foster mom says she is not sure how I am with cats so she thinks it may be best if I do not live in a house with cats. I do like small dogs though.

I am not a water dog just so you know. I fell into the pool one day and I was so scared that now I am not even going nearby. But that’s ok; we can do other fun stuff. I love running!!! I am great off-leash at the park and I will stay close to the other dogs and my foster mom. I always come when she calls me because that’s who I am – a cool guy that wants to please.

I am really looking forward to my forever home so if you think I sound like your type of guy contact your family rep right away. My foster mom is great at giving me lots of love, but the more I hear about these ‘forever families’ the more I think I should probably get one of my own. My foster mom says that SCLRR families make the best forever families so I think that is the kind of forever family for me.
Have a Wonderful Day, families. I can’t wait to meet you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shadow Dawg, a Torrance 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 Torrance, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Torrance.

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