Porthos-Prison Dog's Story...
Introducing Porthos! He's a 2 year old Yellow Lab mix that arrived from another facility. He's hoping someone at Friendship notices what a great dog he is and adopts him. Porthos has been a friendly and active fellow since his arrival. He's a social boy with an easy going attitude. The history of Porthos is not known but he's hoping to start a brand new wonderful future once he's back from his training.

On July 15, 2014, Porthos was selected to be one of Friendship's Prison Dogs. He is currently undergoing training at the Grafton Correctional Institution. Porthos is being trained in obedience, basic commands, manners and proper leash walking. He will spend approximately 12 weeks at the prison.

If you are interested in adopting a prison dog, adoption applications are now being accepted. They can be downloaded at www.friendshipapl.org under ADOPT-FIND A FRIEND. A limited amount of apps will be accepted for each Prison Dog. They must be hand delivered to Friendship. If you have any questions, please contact the shelter at 440-322-4321.

If you put in an adoption application on a prison dog and find another dog before they return, please inform Friendship.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Porthos-Prison Dog, a Elyria Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Elyria, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Elyria.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Elyria 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 Elyria 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 Elyria paves the way for another one to be saved.
