My story

Meet sweet Pumpkin! Pumpkin was born in Feb 2020. She has been with a loving family since she was eight weeks old as a rescue. Sadly, due to severe dog allergies with serious health implications that have formed with one of the children, the family had to give up Pumpkin. She has been living in a loving home with 3 small children and can be trusted with kids any age. She especially likes infants, she will regularly try to give ours kisses on the nose, if he is cruising by at her level. She looks like a black lab, but she has the smarts of a working dog. She is the happiest when we are spending weekends at a ranch, where she will fetch a stick in the lake for literally as long as someone is willing to throw it! She is curious about horses and cows, but she will heel by your side and will not enter a pasture un-invited.

She is well trained and she absolutely loves being put to work. She is incredibly loyal, and she reads her owner to assess a situation. She has grown up in a neighborhood with kids and dogs, and this is all that she knows.

Pumpkin will be the happiest if she can find a loving family, who takes pride in giving her wonderful experiences - whether that be hikes in the mountains, dock diving in the lake, agility contests, or really anything that tests her mentally and physically. She will return the favor with love and loyalty that is second to none.

Why adoption is a great option

Pumpkin, a Jay Labrador Retriever/Australian Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Australian Shepherd for sale in Jay, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Australian Shepherd 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 Labrador Retriever/Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Jay paves the way for another one to be saved.
