Star's Story...
Name: Star
Breed: Black Lab
Age: Mature Adult
Gender: Female

Star is a mature adult Black Lab who acts like a dog much younger than her age would suggest! She is all about walks, adventures, and having fun with her people. She takes her job of being a best friend very seriously but she has a silly side that comes out when she sees her leash come out for walks or when toys come out. Yes, show this middle aged lady a toy and watch her turn into an instant puppy! She is good with older, respectful kids who mind her space...she, like many dogs, isn't a huge fan of hugs or little ones getting up in her business. Star is well housetrained, crates for the workday well though probably doesn't need it with her great manners, and knows a few basic commands. She is smart and very food-motivated so training her is a breeze...whoever said old dogs can't learn new tricks clearly never met Star! Star does not care for other pets so she needs a home who wants her to be their one and only. She is not a dog to take to the dog park or to bring to a friend's for a doggy playdate, she simply doesn't enjoy the company of other canines or felines. She would much prefer the peace of her own home as the one and only furry friend and what a devoted friend you have in Star. It doesn't get much more loving than her happy dance when she sees you or her wiggles of joy for absolutely any scrap of attention paid her way. She radiates love and joy for her family and for all people she meets.

Requirements: No cats. No other dogs. Older child/adult home.

You can email with questions and for a preadopt application. This dog has been spayed/neutered, vaccinated as age appropriate, tested for heartworm disease if age appropriate, and dewormed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Star, a Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
