Little Joe's Info...

I am good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Little Joe's Story...
Joe was found as a stray and was nursed back to health from bite wounds and a flea infestation. He was very skinny and covered in scabs and scars but now he is a healthy, full-vetted adoptable dog! Joe loves to be around people of all ages and enjoys a good belly rub. He is crate trained and is currently working on basic commands such as sit. Joe would do best in a home without cats but would not mind a canine pal. Joe is a lab mix estimated to be around 2 to 3 years old and weighs in at just over 40 pounds. Joe cannot wait to find his furever home! Will it be with you?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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