Summer's Story...
Bring some extra Summer into your life! This cute little boy is a retriever mix, 10 months old as of July 1st and 30 pounds. He has a sweet personality that will warm your heart. Summer is easy-going, just like his mother, a 40 pound lab retriever mix. He loves all people and other dogs!

His foster mom says Summer is outgoing but not overly energetic, and that he is a real "people dog". He loves just hanging out with us, or snuggling with our dog. He's incredibly easy and non-demanding. Summer is completely housebroken; he just needs to be kept on a regular schedule. A fenced back yard would be a big plus: Summer will not always go potty while on a leash. He loves neighborhood walks and is very well behaved at the dog park.

Summer has been in a foster home his entire life (never a shelter) so he is very well adjusted to the routine of family life. He would be a great family dog: he is playful, but very calm for a young dog. He is not a chewer, or a jumper, and walks very nicely on a leash. He gets along extremely well with other dogs and would make a great addition to a multiple dog family. He is also very patient and friendly with young children. He is a favorite with the local Petco groomers, and is a great companion in the car. Summer is ready for puppy school and for a family of his own.

Because of a viral illness when he was a baby, Summer's adult teeth were damaged and had to be removed. However, it in no way affects his ability to eat dry dog food or chew on rawhides. If you want a dog with perfect teeth and no known history of illness, he's not the dog for you. If you want a dog with a complete medical history and a close to perfect disposition, then Summer could be the dog for you!

Summer's adoption fee of $300 includes: vet exam, heartworm test, flea preventative, DAPP (distemper combo) vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, microchip, deworming and neuter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Summer, a Mt. Prospect Labrador Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Mt. Prospect, or seeking a Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Mt. Prospect.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Mt. Prospect already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Mt. Prospect breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Mt. Prospect paves the way for another one to be saved.
