Kirby – A Handsome Devil
Apricot Male Doodle, Age 1, 65lbs

WARNING: The following article contains addictive cuteness and exposure can lead to the needfor puppy dog hugs.

Just kidding! It’s just me, Kirby, but I am pretty darn cute if I do say so myself! Kind of like a giant, interactive teddy bear that likes cuddles and treats! But can I let you in on my secret? Underneath all this fluffy cuteness is a lonesome puppy who only wants a family to love and be loved by! Could it be you? Are you the one?

Now, before I tell you more about myself, I want to say thank you. Thank you for taking the time to look at a rescue dog. Thank you for considering me and my fellow fosters rather than going to a backyard breeder. When you adopt dogs like me, rescues can go and save another dog and it is going to take all of us, working together, to stop the insanity of the never-ending dogs needing homes.

Normally, this is where we usually tell you why a dog like us needs a home. But frankly, there are just too many dogs everywhere needing homes, many of us, like me, end up dumped when we did nothing wrong. But I was a lucky one. I had been hit by a car, had bad injuries, and needed a whole lot of medical help. But here is where my luck changed. I was found in an  orchard by an Angel Nurse who has everything but wings. She worked with me, nursed me, got me healthy, and even started some basic training. And if that isn’t enough, she hooked me up with the Defenders of Dogs and here I am – a foster with the one and only Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno!

So, what are you waiting for? Behind this handsome apricot face is a dog who still wants a chance to be a family puppy! A family to raise me and love me and keep me safe all of my days! And me? Well, I am already a dog – one of the most perfect things on Earth – and I will bring unconditional love and joy into your life! Please? Adopt me? I have been through so much and am ready to start my life!

Kirby is available for adoption through the Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno. He is friendly with dogs large and small. Children should be older since he is still a big puppy. There are no cats in the foster home. Like all young Labs, he is still puppy like and will require training, patience, regular exercise, and love to reach his full potential. Additionally, Doodles require regular grooming, but it does make them extra cute! So, if you would like to adopt Kirby, please fill out an online adoption application.
