Facts about Bart
Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix
Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
already neutered and housetrained.
I am already neutered and housetrained.
Bart is an extremely well-trained 3 year old medium sized adult Black Lab (60 pounds). He loves to run and play with his foster sisters. He is fully house trained and crate trained. We can tell him to "get in your house" and he will go sit in his crate with the door open. He is trained to walk on a loose leash, remain on a designated place cot until given a release command, and trained to respect doorways and wait until given a release command to run through them. He has done well around dogs of all sizes (7 pounds all the way up to 70 pounds).
He is very loving and affectionate. I periodically invite him up into my lap and he loves to lay there and give me kisses. He loves to play with toys in the yard. Frisbees, bones, and tug toys are all high on his list of favorite things.
While there is a cat in his foster home that I've trained him to ignore, he has a relatively high prey drive so he would be best in a house without cats. And since he can be energetic, I would recommend a house with older children so he does not knock them over on accident. If he is out on a walk and sees a cat or a squirrel in the neighborhood, he can obsess over them until I engage him in some training exercises.
Bart would love an adopter that can appreciate the excellent training he has received while in foster care. If you have been looking for a lab, Bart might be the perfect match. Please consider applying for Bart at: http://www.saverescue.org/adoptionapplication/.
S.A.V.E. Rescue Coalition works to promote adoption through new adoption events, more public exposure of pets for adoption, and help the public make a good match with an adoptable animal. Rescue groups work very hard to save animals every day, often using their own money, sacrificing time with family etc. We have animals from shelters and the streets of Houston that are now adoptable pets and we area helping these animals find permanent, loving homes. We are all volunteer and no funds are spent for salaries, benefits etc. All money goes directly to the rescue group or their animals.

Our Adoption Process...
Adoption fee range from $150-200 for dogs and $75-100 for cats and each animal is altered, microchipped and current on all vaccinations. You will be required to complete an application for your selected pet. You can do so at www.saverescue.org/adoptionapplication. Processing may take up to 3 days. The application will include previous pet experience and vet info, how you will house your new pet and a little about your lifestyle so that we can be sure your pet will mesh with your family's activity level. We want you to have a permanent family member so we will take great care to assure that you find a suitable companion.
