Petro 1 YR OLD's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with kids.

Petro 1 YR OLD's Story...
"Honey, we're pregnant!"

Three little joyful words.... but the three words Petro dreads to hear. And why wouldn't he? Those three little words are the reason he's lost his home time and time again.

His original owner got him as an adorable tiny pup. But only months later, she found out she was pregnant, so she gave him to a coworker. And only months after that, his new owner got the same joyful news, and Petro was out of a home once again.

This cycle must stop!

Kids and dogs are a great combination. But far too often, dogs like Petro lose their homes simply because a new baby is on the way.

Never again. Let's find this boy a real permanent home.

Petro is a 1 year old Black Lab mix. When you enter the kennel area, Petro makes sure you notice him. And if you're not paying attention, he'll reach out of his kennel like a cat and tap you on the shoulder.

He is a very smart boy and has done well in his obedience classes. He has already mastered Sit, Down, Stay and Come, and he's very eager to learn more.

He would prefer to be the only dog in the home because he tends to be a bit of an attention hog. He gets along well with kids. Cats are a no-no though.

You can meet Petro at the Adoption Center Monday through Saturday 1pm to 7pm. He is already neutered, heartworm tested, fully vaccinated, dewormed, flea treated and microchipped, so he's ready to join your family right away.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Petro 1 YR OLD, a Struthers 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 Struthers, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Struthers.

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