Zydeco's Info...

Zydeco's Story...
Zydeco and his two siblings were rescued from one of our local high kill shelters. He is a beautiful dog with a gorgeous blue brindle type coat. We think he is a rough collie mix maybe with lab. He just loves to run and play and wrestle with his siblings or anyone else he can find and then typical puppy just crashes on his doggie bed, he has a sweet personality. He is picking up house training fairly well and he will run outside with his buddies to go when he needs to, but still is not fully trained and will need some more ongoing training and also leash and obedience training as he is a puppy. He will probably be 40 lbs plus when fully grown he is 14 weeks and 18 lbs as of April 2015 .

If you live in MA, there are new requirements for rescue dogs - according to the State Law, all rescues have to be quarantined for 48 hrs at the Ven Elger Kennels in Westport, MA. There is additional cost for this quarantine and new required health cert by a licensed MA vet of $110. We will go over all fees with you via email.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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