Roxy's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Roxy's Story...
The name’s Roxy and I am one awesome well-bred example of the perfect mutt. Maybe a little lab, a little terrier, a little husky - I mean, who knows? At an estimated 2 years, a trim 54 lbs., my light tan and white coat, and dark mascara lines around my eyes that any human actress would envy, I could easily fit the top 25 percentile of best looking in age and weight range for the mongrel class.

Not only that, when I come into a person’s home I display proper manners – unlike some of those less fortunates who never received a good education in etiquette. What are good manners, you ask? Well, it is all the basic stuff, I’m sure you understand; chew only on dog items, rest in the dog bed and not on the furniture, food on counters and tables belongs to someone else, don't bark unless you have something really important to say, share bones and toys when asked and, of course the big one, the commode is outside, not inside. Of course, there are some things that are simply out of my control – like shedding, it happens OK? People need to learn to get a brush and deal with it. The other thing is squirrels … they are absolutely fascinating, intriguing, captivating and suck a dog in like a black hole does space debris. I really don’t expect humans to relate, it’s a dog thing, we can’t help it, it’s in the genes. When my folks allow, I love to play fetch, mostly in the house though because … you know … there are squirrels outside so it’s very, very hard to stay focused.

My humans are helping out with my continuing education and I have graduated to Sit, Wait and Come on the deck. Come is a little difficult, but Romulus and Remus were not raised in a day, so it will just take some time. They are also helping with my focus; again, it takes time but the rewards are, though not long lasting, very tasty. At night, my lady has her tea while I settle down in my crate with my peanut butter Kong bedtime snack (and any treats that have been secreted in the crate when I wasn’t looking). I would rather be with people, and do let my opinion be known by fussing a bit when left alone. I would love to find another dog of my size to engage in play.

Roxy's adoption fee of $300 includes: vet exam, heartworm test (neg), distemper/bordetella/rabies vaccinations, deworming, flea control, heartworm preventative, microchip and spay.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Roxy, a Mt. Prospect 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 Mt. Prospect, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog 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.
