Merlin's Story...
Hi, I'm Merlin. I love people and other dogs, but it just takes some time. I am a very shy boy who is trying to overcome the hard life I have had. I have been with my foster for a little over a year – she says that I’ve become quite the rambunctious guy. I haven't been around cats, but I can tell you that I have been known to chase a squirrel or two in my back yard. I was very proud of myself when I caught one! My foster also says that I would benefit from obedience training to help me learn some additional manners. That's okay with me, because I'm very smart and eager to please. I'm crate trained. But I’m not quite ready to run free in your home without supervision. Honestly, I'd rather hang out in the yard because there's more to see and smell there. But be warned, I love to jump! I will jump a fence if I am left outside for too long. If you think you might want someone like me – and you have time and energy to spare – give my rescue a call so we can hang out!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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