Nova's Story...
Nova wants you to notice her! Sure, there are tons of other black Lab-mixes in shelters being overlooked, but she wants you to give her a try! She is a happy 5-year-old girl who was surrendered to us by a family that kept her as an outdoor dog her whole life. But she is learning what a warm bed and watching TV on the couch is all about. She is housebroken and is learning that her crate is her safe space. Nova is good with other dogs and cat-tested fine [check out the video!], but in her new foster home, she is interested in chasing them. She’s your typical friendly and energetic Lab who thinks everything is awesome. Belly rubs are her favorite thing! She is in a foster home that is teaching her important skills that her previous home failed to show her. In no time, she will be ready for a forever home with a loving adopter. She is improving on the leash and is learning to heel. She learns more every day! Nova will appreciate continued training in her forever home to ensure her success. She knows how to sit, lie down and give paw with both paws! She likes children and should be fine in a home with kids 7 and up. Email plusdogs@ILDobeRescue.com

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nova, a Barrington Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog for sale in Barrington, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Barrington.

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