Duke-Courtesy Post's Info...

I am up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Duke-Courtesy Post's Story...
The Duke.

John Wayne comes to mind but we are proud to say we have our own Duke here.

This very handsome has his own story. It starts with a good Samaritan finding him and begins like this:

Stray dog was in my yard in Mid June.
Was skiddish? at first.
Got to be friendly, we put him up in yard.
Had no collar, looked "abandoned"
Have been asking people if they're interested in him, with no luck.
August, Duke snuck out of yard, neighbor called dog catcher.
I bailed Duke out, got ticket for no dog license.
I had to have him get a rabies shot to be released, and to get a lic.
I found out he was chipped at that time.

I've been in contact with the owner, where they gave him away at 2 months old, and that person has been lying to them all along telling them the dog's doing fine.

I was told by orig owner that he had all his shots when chipped in Feb. He was born Dec 17 I'm told.

Pros:
smart
responding to commands with hand, sit, lay down
loves to fetch
loves his 1st play toy, he did 2 somersaults while playing! I've never seen that before.

NO food aggression
Has NEVER been aggressive in the 3 months I've had him
Showed NO aggression at the vet to the other dogs, only curiosity

Doesn't bark, or whine, or beg to come in
Does well on runner cable.

Cons:
Jumps up on you when you first see him. I believe it's anxiety from absence. When I'm with him a while, he doesn't do that. He's left alone quite a bit at work, that's why he needs a family asap. I've been using a green Squirt bottle with water when he jumps up and it's working great! I don't even have to squirt it anymore. Just holding it in my hand makes him not jump up and calm down.

He has chewed things that I've left out. I do give him rawhides, bones. I believe this can be overcome with people around more than the 2 hours a day he gets here.

He sometimes chews on my hands, NEVER bites, but a playful teething type of nibble. The green bottle has been working well for that too. And when I exclaim "NO", the chews turn to licks. So he does know right from wrong. Just needs more attention.

DUKE NEEDS TO HAVE A COMPLETELY FENCED IN YARD.

He's a big, loving puppy that needs a family. He's more of a submissive type than dominant. He loves to run and have fun. He did well at the dog catcher's cage, wasn't barking to get out. Just sat there.

Well, that's Duke. If you are interested, please email PATRICK at kryslerkid@att.net

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Duke-Courtesy Post, a Chesterfield 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 Chesterfield, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Chesterfield.

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