DJ's Story...
So many people in my house and all I heard was whispers....I didn't understand what they were saying but I knew they were talking about me. I heard bits and pieces like "I can't take him, we don't have room for an old dog"...."he isn't my responsibility, just take him to the shelter."I walked around my house looking for my Dad..."Dad, Dad, where are you?" Maybe he is in the kitchen drinking that black stuff from a mug....nope not in there. Maybe he is taking a nap....nope not in there. Maybe he went outside and forgot to take me with him...nope I don't see him anywhere. I guess I will wait by the door for him to come home.So I waited and waited, I was patient. All the people were still talking very quietly and looking at me. One person did come up to me and say "I'm sorry DJ, but your Dad will never be coming home again - he went to heaven and he will wait for you at the end of the Rainbow Bridge." So he loaded me in the car and took me to the shelter.I was displaced and anxious, I know they are trying to do me right but frankly, I didn't like it there. Afterall, I am 11 years old, a bit arthritic, but I can still get around and I still have alot of love to give and I can't do it here.But today was a good day - I got out! I went to a wonderful foster home with other dogs and I really like it there. I went to the vet and he said I do have to loose some weight, so I guess less kibble and treats for me for awhile but I'm good with that.DJ is my name and I am an 11 year old Black Lab. I am recovering from an ear infection but all is progressing well. In my senior years, all I want is a sunny, comfy spot to sleep most of the day, a family that will love me for all my remaining years and I promise I will love you intently until my last breath.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

DJ, a Newaygo 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 Newaygo, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Newaygo.

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