J-D's Story...

We found J-D in a pretty bad state. There was a 10 lb. chain pad locked around his neck and he was pulling a portion of a tree. But that didn’t deter his love of life and people. He is such a smart guy and eager to learn. We have taught him basic manners (e.g., Sit, Down, Stay, Come), walking nicely on leash and socialization at the dog park. A crowded dog park can be a little overwhelming for him, so continuing his training in his new home would help ease the transition. In our home we have 3 resident dogs (2 males & 1 female). One of our males can be an instigator and is having difficulty with a new larger male in the house. J-D gets along with the other male and the female in our home. Plus, he has behaved very nicely towards people. For a former street dog, he has shown excellent manners in our home! He has not chewed on anything, had an “accident” or done anything remotely destructible. He is very calm in the house and enjoys laying around. We have several baby gates throughout our home and he has respected those boundaries. He didn’t even know what a leash was when we first got him, but he is now the best walker we have. He loves to go on long walks and is extremely well behaved when we pass other animals, people or critters. I strongly feel that he will thrive in a home with 1 or 2 dogs (not as many dogs as we have in our home). I think he could probably even do well in a small indoor space as long as he gets his walks and visits to the dog park.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

J-D, a Houston Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Houston, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston 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 Houston 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/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
