My story

Look at this handsome boy. Colby is a sweet, gentle fellow - 6 years old and about 55-60 lbs. He is a lab/shepherd mix???
Colby gets along great with other dogs, is good with cats and loves people. He is house trained and crate trained, walks well on a leash and as you can see in the pictures, loves his tennis ball. The only thing missing for Colby is his FOREVER HOME.

Colby is currently in the Harrisburg, PA area, but transport is available to an approved home

Why adoption is a great option

Colby, a Derry Retriever (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Retriever (Unknown Type) for sale in Derry, or seeking a Retriever (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Derry.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Derry 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 Derry 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 Retriever (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Retriever (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Derry paves the way for another one to be saved.
