Johnny's Info...

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

Johnny's Story...
Johnny and his siblings Olivia and Newton came to us from Missouri, where they were left in the woods to fend for themselves. Through a “Twist of Fate” someone found them, kept them safe from the coyotes, and worked some “Magic” to get them to Adopt A Pet.

Johnny is about 4 months old and weighs 25 pounds, and looks the most like a lab. All the pups have the markings of a hound and the sweet personalities of a lab, and might be lab/hound mixes. But that is very much of a guess, so only those willing to take pot-luck as far as actual breed should apply!

These pups are extremely friendly, good with people and with other dogs, and not overly interested in cats. They have typical puppy energy, but are not overly “Physical”. Johnny is an active little guy, who wants and seeks out attention. He is happiest just sitting in your lap, but he's also content on his own with a chew toy. He would love another young dog to play with, but it's people he likes the most. At first we thought he was nipping his foster mom, but in fact he was giving little love nibbles!

Johnny will need a family where someone is home part or all of the day to get him on a regular schedule, since he is not house-trained. But with “A Little More Love” and some obedience training, most likely he will be “Hopelessly Devoted To You” when full grown!

His adoption fee of $325 includes: vet exam, DAPP (distemper combo), bordetella, and rabies vaccinations, microchip, deworming, flea and tick prevention, heartworm preventative and neuter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Johnny, a Mt. Prospect Hound (Unknown Type)/Labrador Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Hound (Unknown Type)/Labrador Retriever for sale in Mt. Prospect, or seeking a Hound (Unknown Type)/Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Mt. Prospect.

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