Houdini's Story...
Hi! My name is Houdini and I love you! I’m a Labrador mix and I’m around 4 years old. My only goals are to be your friend and to make you proud of me. I’m smart and I’m house-trained. I know how to sit, stay, shake, and walk on a leash. I’d love to be a protector for you, but if you just want me to lay next to the couch with you, that’s fine with me. I am not aggressive, and I love other people and other dogs. I am loving, trusting and patient.

As a Labrador, I like working and having something to do. I really enjoy running around and playing. While I’m in that mood, I’m a little unaware of my own strength, so if there are little kids walking around then make sure you settle me down. If you leave me home alone for a few hours and there’s food within my reach on the kitchen counter, the temptation might be too much for me at times. I know it’s wrong to eat your loaf of bread and your pound cake, but sometimes I just can’t help myself! I do feel bad afterwards though. Also, if I’m in the back yard by myself and I see a cute dog walking by, I might jump over your fence so I can go say hi and then come back home. But I’m very easy to train, so if you spend a little time with me then I’ll be however you want me to be.

Among my favorite things to do are spending time outside, playing with other dogs, playing tug-of-war with a rope, and snuggling on the couch. I’m hoping to land in a happy home and become a big part of your family for the rest of my days!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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