There's a reason Labrador retrievers are the most popular dog breed in America. You probably have met many representatives of this gentle, intelligent, family-loving breed, or even or been loved by one. Yet all dogs, even the most undemanding, require an ongoing commitment of time, money, exercise, discipline and affection. And sometimes, life intervenes to make it impossible for people to care for or keep their pets.
That's where Golden Gate Labrador Retriever Rescue comes in. GGLRR is dedicated to finding homes for Labs in need and matching people with just the right canine companion. Visit the website at www.labrescue.org to read about the adoption process on the How to Adopt page, or see Labs looking for homes and those recently adopted under Labs Available. To get the process rolling, contact a local representative by going the Contact page. Reps are available to talk about the adoption process, introduce you to dogs available for adoption and begin the process of matching an available dog to a forever home.
Currently in foster care is Jinx, who was found as a stray and brought to the Martinez shelter. The staff recognized her sweet temperament, and called Lab Rescue; her calm, easy-going nature has helped her to fit right in with her Foster's three dogs. Her Foster Mom says: "How this girl ended up as a stray is a mystery! She has clearly been in a loving home before. She is fully house-trained, respectful and responsive, and all-around low-maintenance. She is equally happy snoozing next to her person, plopping down with a toy on the nearest available dog bed, or sunning on the grass in the yard, holding a ball or toy." This active senior girl would be a wonderful companion for a couple or individual working from home, or a great "starter dog" for a busy, young, Lab-loving family or first-time dog owner. Jinx is located in San Jose. If you are interested in meeting this mellow, affectionate girl, and giving her the safe, loving home she deserves, please contact GGLRR Rep Liz at 415-898-9402.
