Lil' Bear's Story...
Lil' Bear is a true mixed breed puppy. We are told her parents are Rottie/Lab, Boxer/Terrier which means he is a handsome mutt, however he most resembles a Mastiff/Labrador mix! Bear-Bear will be a large dog and he already stands a head taller than his litter-mates.
Lil' Bear goes to the front of the class when it comes to smarts. He was the first to learn sit=treat, and to offer his paw for a "shake" to engage his peeps. He is quiet for a puppy and has a gentle temperament with his siblings. If the girls are rumbling and getting unruly, he gets between them to separate them. He respects the adult dogs, but likes to trot alongside them to explore the world.

He is dewormed, current on vaccines, microchipped and will be neutered in a couple weeks, but we are accepting applications now and he can go with an extra $100 deposit which will be refunded when he is neutered (and we pay for that).
Are you interested in adopting Lil' Bear or another JCAPL pet you have seen? You'll need to start by completing an adoption application, available online at our website: www.jcapl.org. There is no obligation to adopt by completing an application, however, we do recommend submitting an application as soon as you find an animal you are interested in. We review applications in the order they are received.

Completed applications can be sent via email to adopt@jcapl.org, faxed to 919-300-5524, or delivered in person by visiting us at one of our adoption events on Saturdays at PetSmart in Garner (White Oak Shopping Center).

We will contact you as soon as possible once we receive your application for Lil' Bear.

Thanks for thinking adoption!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lil' Bear, a Smithfield Mastiff/Labrador Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Mastiff/Labrador Retriever for sale in Smithfield, or seeking a Mastiff/Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Smithfield.

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