Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Jamesa (roxysrescue@yahoo.com), 713-882-2610 for more information about this pet. Labrador Retriever beautiful Bronzy/Black color Callie gave birth to 8 puppies on November 17, 2015; 4 girls & 4 boys. All have been adopted except one, her look-a-like KANZY. You can see more pictures and videos on our website. www.roxysk9rescue.org Callie appears to be a true Labrador Retriever. Callie had no microchip and I guess she ran away for a better life. Callie ate through her rope and tie-down from her home and ended up at one of my feeding stations very pregnant. She gave birth to 9 puppies almost 1 week later. Very smart girl, I guess Callie decided she would not give birth while tied up. With the help of some other nice ladies, they made sure she was fed but she had squeezed her way behind a fence of an abandoned property and very afraid. She had on a huge black collar and chain that she broke to escape her previous home. As soon as she had her babies, the ladies notified me. I climbed the fence and found her 2 day old babies laying filth, dirt, trash, it was very nice and they were covered already with fleas. This may have been Callie's first litter, she tried to hide them from the elements but she didn't do a very good job, they were completely exposed to the wind and rain. 1 little puppy didn't make it. But the other 8 looked good. Callie has a great personalities, she is very quiet, friendly and gets along with all humans and dogs. Actually her entire litter of puppies were all very quiet, quiet when they played, ate, wrestled, they were just a very calm, chill bunch. Callie does not get upset, nor is she destructive. She will sleep in her crate but she is fine just sleeping on her doggy bed, she is not destructive. She will play with toys but she would rather have some ear scratches and love from her human and cuddle besides you. She is not a shadow dog, very independent but she keeps an eye on you to make sure you are still there. Callie is a Labrador retriever mix with a bronzy brown coat with black going doing the middle. Now that she knows she is safe and not chained up, she is the perfect little lady. She requires very little maintenance and just wants to be loved. She has 1 male playmate who she is fond of but she is in a home with a variety of foster brothers and sisters. Callie has a mild demeanor and seems to be happy, she is not aggressive in any area and likes to get out for walks but not demanding of them. Callie's coat looks a lot better now, her eyes are happy. I will get some updated photos and post them. Please consider meeting Callie and giving her a chance. If you are interested in meeting Callie, please email us and we can schedule a meet and greet at your convenience.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.
