Moose's Story...
Name: Moose
Breed: Lab/Chesapeake mix
Age: Senior
Gender: Male

Moose is a very big mature adult (8-9 years) chocolate Lab/Chesapeake mix, surrendered when his owner's health failed. He is so confused as to why he lost his home, but in the true spirit of a Retriever, making the best of his situation for the time being until a new retirement home is found for him. Moose is house trained, good with other dogs and kids. He is reliable off leash once attached, and will bark if tied out, so a home with a fence or someone who walks is preferred. He's medium energy, still loves to chase the ball and go for a swim and a walk, but settles down nicely inside. He was placed in a family members backyard for a few months so has a coat needing some work, it's sun bleached and he could use some good nutrition. He's an amiable dog with a sweet old soul needing his own place, with his own people. He has shown fear towards extremely large/tall men by barking and retreating, has never shown any fear with the men in his foster home and in fact enjoys their attention.

Requirements: No special requirements

You can email with questions and for a preadopt application. This dog has been spayed/neutered, vaccinated as age appropriate, tested for heartworm disease if age appropriate, and dewormed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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