Taro's Story...
Sweet and huggable, he’s playful and affectionate and ready to be your constant companion!

Meet Taro, Chago, Dhalia, Cassave, Daikon, Burdock, Jicama and Parsnip! Some of these names sound familiar, right? That’s because they represent members of the tuber family. Think potatoes or yams! The pups are a mix of Catahoula and Labrador Retriever, and are expected to grow up to be fantastic family dogs!

Taro is a solid black male, drawing from the Lab side of his family tree. He’s cute, cuddly and totally lovable!

Your pup will totally appreciate it if your home is ready for him before bringing him home! Food, bedding, a leash, a collar, toys and a crate will get Taro off to a great start! Have a veterinarian picked out, as Taro will need vaccinations and yearly checkups, as well as flea and tick preventatives. If you’ve got these items taken care of, you’ll have more time to spend with your new puppy!

Taro is going to love you, but he’s got to meet you first!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Taro, a Houston Catahoula Leopard Dog/Labrador Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Catahoula Leopard Dog/Labrador Retriever for sale in Houston, or seeking a Catahoula Leopard Dog/Labrador Retriever puppy 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 Catahoula Leopard Dog/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Catahoula Leopard Dog/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
