Bo's Story...
Bo is a super sweet little boy. He is around 1 year old and 30-35 lbs. Bo is likely done growing and will stay small. He loves people and is not shy or reserved at all. He is house trained and has experience walking on leash but still needs help learning not to pull when he wants to go meet another dog or see someone. He is very strong. Deceptively strong for his size. Not many people who have met Bo are willing to hazard a guess on his breeds, beyond labrador retriever mix. Our dog coordinator thinks he might be yellow lab/basset hound. He is right around basset size and he has the large head and long body of a basset. Really anyones best guess though, he is a unique looking little guy! Bo has no experience with small children or cats so we don't know how he will do. He is new to his foster home but his initial interactions suggest he likes other dogs just fine. He would be perfect for someone who liked large breeds but lived in size restricted housing or otherwise needed a smaller dog.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bo, a Manhattan Labrador Retriever/Basset Hound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Basset Hound for sale in Manhattan, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Basset Hound dog from a breeder in Manhattan.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Manhattan 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 Manhattan 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/Basset Hound breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Basset Hound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Manhattan paves the way for another one to be saved.
