Reasons To Look Into Rescue Labradors
There are so many options available to people today that one would find it hard to not find a dog one liked or found suitable to one's living situation. Puppies are playful and energetic, but require a lot of work. Some people may not have the time to train a puppy and merely want an older dog so some of the painful processes can be skipped. In that case, some people look towards adoption. Taking the route of adoption is a great way to give an older dog a new home and potential owners will find that rescue Labradors have features and characteristics that can be very appealing.
Less Training, More Love From The Lab
It is likely that the dog comes from a previous situation in which the owner was unable to attend to the dog's needs. Thus, when a loving owner comes to pick up the rescue Labrador, it will latch on to that owner and show it the love and devotion it has always wanted to. Also, something a new owner will appreciate, and this is usually the best reason for getting an older dog, is the lack of training needed when bringing the rescue Labrador home. The older dog has already been housebroken and will not go through the annoying habits (chewing, urinating on the carpet, etc.) that puppies do. A lot of rescue dogs also have their shots and remain healthy (and Labs are known for being healthy dogs anyway), so the vet trips will be less frequent and easier as well.
It is also easier to match the personalities of both the owner and the rescue Labrador when using this option. When the dog is a puppy, it is hard to determine what its personality will be years down the road. Luckily, an owner of a rescue dog will know what to expect and he/she will be able to get a dog that easily fits his/her lifestyle. Sometimes, going through adoption agencies ensures that the owner and dog will be happier together in the long run.
Considering a rescue Labrador has many good aspects. There will be considerably less training and fewer headaches along the way and it is very likely that the dog will love the new owner and his/her family right away. For people who are looking for a new dog but do not have the time to train but want a loving companion, rescue Labradors are great choices. There is no reason not to at least consider the option because rescue organizations take care of the dog and make it their main priority to find the dog a good home. One can be sure that he/she will be receiving a healthy dog that has a personality that best matches the owner's lifestyle and there is nothing wrong with that.
