Jake's Story...
*Jake is currently living in Houston, Texas with his foster family and is available for out-of-state adoption.*

Jake is a Yellow Labrador and Whippet mix and is estimated at 4 months old. He is currently about 20 pounds and expected to be 35-40 pounds as a full-sized adult. His coat is short and blonde/white in color with adorable sandy blonde ears.

Animal control picked up Jake and his sister Maggie who were found wandering in a dangerous area. The shelter contacted our director asking for assistance since other rescues had come and passed them over. We were expecting pretty severe health or behavioral problems since they had been passed over by other rescues, but to our surprise they were normal sweet puppies with just a few skin issues since they had been so badly bitten by fleas.

Even though Jake and his sister must have been very scared, they warmed up to their foster family right away! Jake loves other dogs (big or small) and he is interested in meeting every human who walks through the door. He loves to play with his toys, his foster siblings, and at the end of the day he loves to relax on the couch or on the floor somewhere lounging with one of his toys. He gives the sweetest kisses in the entire world and he is always happy!

Jake’s skin has healed up nicely and he’s ready to find his forever home! His foster parents work with his every day on crate training, potty training, and general commands. He has made great progress and already knows how to use the doggy door and how to “sit”. He is still a bit too young to be neutered, but has already been microchipped, has all of his puppy vaccinations and has been dewormed. His adoption fee is $450 to cover the cost of his travel. If Jake is the perfect pup for your family, please fill out the adoption application on our website, under the Adoptables tab or email

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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