Bailey (AKA Piggy)

Bailey is an AKC yellow Labrador retriever that was born July 2014, and has been with me since 8 weeks of age, along with her black half sister. Piggy will get into your heart from the first moment you see her. Her sleek yellow coat stays clean, not a lot of shedding. Piggy lives for the moment you will want to check her belly and play fetch with the rocks. She will talk to you when she wants to be fed. She doesn’t like walks, she takes her time. Instead she will sit by you, pat your leg for attention, and to be told what a great girl she is. Piggy will need help as she gets older…. Her hip xrays shows she will have hip dysplasia as she gets older. Only a special loving person will get to take Piggy home. I am unable to keep 6 labs and need to find a home for her. . For more information, please contact Lucy at or leave a message at 928-853-4004.



Lilly is an AKC black Labrador retriever that was born July 2014, and has been with me since 8 weeks of age, along with a yellow half sister. Lilly is jet black with the thickest coat you will find. She has the right size, gentle and sweet disposition and beautiful face. Lilly loves to run, get bear hugs, have body rubs and play. She is used to have free run of the home yard, no collar or lease, stays in an outdoor kennel with run. She is crate trained. Lilly is current on all shots, rabies, and Heartgaard treatments. She needs a loving, caring person who will let her run. I think she would be best as a single dog. I am looking for a new home for her as I will not be able to keep six labs. For more information, please contact Lucy at or leave a message at 928-853-4004.



Cooper walks on the leash, is potty trained, likes his crate, and will do a few commands like sit, down, stay, wait, go to your room (crate), and give paw (shake hands). He’s got a ton of energy, and is a really sweet dog. He LOVES to HIKE, run, play, and run.
Cooper is not good with young kids as he has shown his teeth when he is feeling threatened or when there is lots of noise or chaos in the house. He’s snapped (NOT bitten) at the kids and his current owner worked with him for 8 months, but they are not comfortable with the risk to their  children. Every dog professional they have worked with to tried to fix this behavior (and it’s a few now) has strongly urged us to re-home him, in a home without children.
The animal communicators have both said that he's longing for a quieter home without children. We are trying to find him a happy home, without young children, who would be interested in this awesome, loving, super-adventurous, happy dog. He needs daily exercise and attention. He plays fetch, tug of war, and anything else you want to play with him. He’s really quite awesome. If you are interested in Cooper please call Toni at 602-686-4158 or email .



Dobby is wonderful, loving 6 y.o. neutered male. He is black lab/cocker spaniel mix. He is currently in his 5th home at no fault of his own. His first two involved abuse and neglect and the family he came from loved him to pieces but had to let him go because they had to move to an apartment and he had separation anxiety when he was alone. This is due to so many upheavals in his life. His perfect forever home would be: a retired person, able to be walked, access to a pool, lots and lots of tennis ball, and a person able to put in the time to help him with behavior modification and training. He is very very sweet, intelligent, a shadow by your side, and love to swim and play ball outside. A Lab who deserves to be with a family who will let him be the dog he longs to be… Call and make an appointment for this great boy who will grab your hearts or email for more information - Laura 602.460.2889 or
