Facts about Kermit

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Meet Handsome Kermit. We think Kermit is 2-3 years old, about 70 pounds of pure sweetness. He has a beautiful color to his coat and his tail curves up a bit. We believe he is a lab mix, but what else he is mixed with we are unsure. He is really a very friendly, sweet dog who loves to cuddle. He loves men, women, children, dogs, kitties everyone. Kermit is left alone for 6-7 hours a day. He isn't crated, but gated in the kitchen and dining area. He doesn't jump the gates or chew anything when home alone.

He is walked daily and will needs walks and/or playtime. He does fabulous on a leash until he gets close to home. Then he gets really excited for some reason. He starts jumping, and mouthing trying to grab your hand. The foster has been bringing a toy with on walks, and when the walk is coming to and end, she gives him the toy which prevents the mouthiness and jumping. At home when playing he also can get a little mouthy when he gets excited. So he may not be the best match for small children who are not used to big dogs and their behaviors.

He is great with kitties and other dogs. Although his foster home doesn't have dogs, he did great with his dog testing prior to arriving to us. We have not seen any anxiety issues, or guarding issues. He still likes to chew sometimes but has kept his chewing on appropriate toys, bones etc. He is fabulous with the teen Daughter in the home. When he first arrived he did some marking. He was neutered on 10-11-16 which helped with the marking along with the foster using a belly band. he hasn't marked now since the beginning to middle of November. He tried once to l lift his leg, the foster said no Kermit, and he put his leg right now.

Kermit was found as a stray in Kentucky. He had been at the shelter waiting for a rescue to save him for a month. Because of his length of stay at the shelter, he ended up on the euthanasia list. When we saw his picture and videos, we had to say YES.

Kermit is being fostered in a home in Bolingbrook, IL, which is where you and your family would go to meet her. All family members, including 4-legged, must be present at the meet and greet to adopt. In order to schedule a meet and greet, please submit and adoption application which can be found on-line at We must have an adoption application submitted and processed prior to making an arrangements for a meet and greet. Once we receive the application we will process. We are all volunteers so it can take a few days to process it. Please be patient. Thank you.

If you are seeing Kermit posted for adoption, he is still looking for a home so there is no need to email us asking if he's available. We update the site regularly. If your interested in meeting this adorable boy, please complete an adoption application by going to our website at and clicking on the "forms" tab. We need to have a submitted adoption application and processed prior to making an appointment since we do not have a facility or regular viewing hours.

Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but is required prior to making arrangements for a meet and greet as all of our animals are cared for in homes. We can't schedule meet and greets until the application is submitted and approved. We don't have a building so there are no viewing hours. All of our animals are cared for in foster homes by wonderful families who volunteer their time to save these precious souls. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Although we make the best guess on the breed and size of our dogs, because they come from shelters or are strays, we can never be completely certain of the genetic makeup of the dog. Breed and weight at maturity are only guesses. All we can tell you for sure is that they are 100% RESCUED! If an animal is still posted for adoption, he/she is still available. If you see this this post, this puppy is available for adoption so there is no need to email asking about availability.

Thank you for looking at our rescued animals!

About Angels On Wheels Animal Rescue NFP

About Our Rescue Group...


Angels on Wheels Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3), non-for-profit, state licensed organization. We are composed of animal-loving volunteers that work vigorously to make a difference in the lives of abandoned animals. We are dedicated to finding and saving neglected and unwanted animals from high kill shelters on death row to give them a second chance for life.

Our purpose is to keep these babies out of already crowded Animal Control Facilities, to provide them with proper medical treatment and then wonderful homes. If you need assistance with Spaying and Neutering your animals, please contact us.

We can't save these babies without your help. Please consider fostering, helping with transporting animals, volunteering by feeding and watering the kittens at Petco, helping with adoption days or donating; either monetary, old pet carriers, blankets, food, newspaper, paper towels, toys, the list is endless. Most importantly please, please spay and neuter all of your pets. It takes two to have a litter.

We may not be able to change change the world, but together, we can change the world for some.

Thank you for viewing our animals, considering adoption instead of buying and for your generousity.

Our Adoption Process...

An Application is required prior to meeting any of our seet rescues. The application can be found at www.angels The adoption fee includes age appropriate vaccinations, deworming with Panacur and Droncit, treated with frontline plus or Revolution, spaying or neutering, Fe/LV/FIV for felines, Heartworm Test age appropriate for dogs and treated when positive, Microchip, and any other medical treatment necessary. Most of our animals come from high kill shelters and more often then not require some kind antibiotics. A spay and neuter voucher and contract is required for all adoptive families for those puppies and kittens to young for spay/neuter prior to adoption. Please see our website for more information about the adoption process.

Every day 10,000 humans are born in the U.S. and each day 70,000 puppies and kittens are also born. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all of the animals. As a result, millions of healthy, loving cats, dogs, kittens and puppies face early deaths as a form of animal control. Others are left to fend for themselves against automobiles, the elements, other animal and cruel humans. You can help just by spaying and neutering your pets, don't ever buy from a pet store, as almost every one of them uses some form of a pupy mill, and remind people to support and ADOPT from a shelter or rescue. Thank you.
