My story

Meet Drake! He is part of an adorable litter, which were born around April 26th. These pups are “Chesadors” which is a wonderful combination of Chesapeake Bay Retriever and Labrador. Drake is the sweetest cuddle bug, he will try to get up on the couch so that he can take a nap while getting belly rubs and kisses. He is calm and usually pretty quiet (unless he is playing!) He is playful, and wants to run around with everyone, although our older dogs (and occasionally chickens) do not always agree. Tug of war is a favorite! He is good around our cats as well. He is a water dog for sure, and likes to go sit or play in the kiddie pool.
He does well in his crate at night, although he is still learning to adjust to crate time during the day when foster mom needs a break. He obeys and understands ‘sit’, and is slowly improving in the potty training area!

This baby was rescued by a Joshua Fund volunteer along with their mama and siblings from horrific conditions. Dozer is now thriving and that is all now in the past.

Why adoption is a great option

Drake, a Jay Chesapeake Bay Retriever/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chesapeake Bay Retriever/Labrador Retriever for sale in Jay, or seeking a Chesapeake Bay Retriever/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Jay.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Jay 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 Jay 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 Chesapeake Bay Retriever/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Chesapeake Bay Retriever/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Jay paves the way for another one to be saved.
