Meet the very sweet Sanford! Sanford was rescued from a high kill shelter in West Tennessee. He is a gentle soul, very nice to walk on leash, very well mannered and great in the car. Sanford loves his toys and anything that you throw for him to chase after. This sweet boy thinks that he is a lap dog and bonds very quickly to his humans. If you sit down, he tries to curl up in your lap for some love and attention.
Sanford is heartworm positive because his previous owners did not keep him on a monthly heartworm prevention, but we are having him treated and he will be good as new very soon. Shelters would normally have a heartworm positive dog put down, but the rescues save them and have them treated so that they can have a second chance at life with a more responsible pet owner. Heartworms are not contageous and are not life altering if they are caught at an early stage and treated. Sanford does not show any clinical signs of heartworm damage and is expected to have a full recovery. He is scheduled for treatment on October 28th and will be available for adoption around the end of November, once he has recovered.This is a very nice pet for a very lucky family. Please consider Sanford as your new companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sanford, a Chattanooga 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 Chattanooga, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Chattanooga.

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