Dexter's Story...
Dexter is a fun loving, sweet, happy boy. He loves other dogs and gets along fine with them, but does tend to want to be the Alfa and loves lots of attention ! He would be very happy in a home where he can be the only dog getting pampered. He does well with cats they
just don’t appreciate all the kisses he has to give. He likes to go for walks on leash, even though he is so big he has learned quickly not to pull. He hasn’t grasped the concept of fetch yet but he LOVES to play in any form or fashion and would do best in a household with plenty of activities. Dexter is completely housebroken and crate trained! He also does really well in a crate for short periods at a time when you have to be away.
Dexter would be ideal with a very active family. He would make a GREAT hiking buddy and does well on car rides or going into a store. He is very sweet and tolerant. He has so much love to give; he hasn’t met a person he hasn’t liked yet, including kids! He prefers a home where there is someone with him most times since he enjoys being with his people and will tend to cry when they are not around. He also requires a home with a large fenced in area so he has plenty of room to play. He has flourished to such a wonderful dog since leaving the kill shelter in Marshall County, we know he would love to become someone's new best friend!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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