HERSHEY's Story...
Hershey is a very sweet pit/chocolate lab mix around 3-4 years old. He only weighs about 40#. He was brought into County Line Pet Hospital as a stray, and sadly no one ever came looking for him. He was getting anxious being at the clinic, as any dog would being in a kennel environment every day. We have no idea why this boy kept getting overlooked for adoption, he is handsome as can be, and was the star of all of the clinic adoption events. After sitting in his kennel run for months hoping for a home, we knew Hershey needed some help getting back to being the fun loving, sweet, happy boy that he was when he first came to us, so he went into foster care with a clinic employee named Felisha. Hershey is thriving in a home, and does great with his foster Pittie sister, and even her cat! Thanks to all of the amazing people that shared Hershey's story, a trainer named Laurie Tuttle got word that Hershey needed help, and volunteered her time and services to help train him. After weeks of hard work, Hershey just finished his training and is doing fantastic! He knows basic commands, walks well on a leash, is easily redirected, and loves to learn. Hershey has a lot of energy and would love a yard to run in and someone to play ball with, but he is also a great snuggler. This boy has had a rough couple of months, but has come out of his funk quite amazingly. He truly deserves a home of his own that will give him space to run and play, possibly continue his training, and give him all the love that he didn't get in his previous home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

HERSHEY, a Portage Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Labrador Retriever for sale in Portage, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Portage.

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