Facts about Wheeler

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever/Boxer Mix

Wheeler showed up on a freezing night on the doorstep of a kind person who took him in. He is now patiently waiting for his forever family. Wheeler is a great dog, and he hopes you will consider adding him to your family!

Wheeler is an easy going and amiable guy who makes a great companion. He is really submissive, and was being bullied by the dominant males in his previous foster home. Like many large dogs, Wheeler is a super-sloppy drinker, but also a super snuggler. In fact he thinks he is a tiny lap dog! He would love to share your bed with you, if that's OK with you.

Wheeler still pulls some on a leash, but he is perfectly house-trained, and doesn't chew anything up. He would do best in a home with a fenced yard. Wheeler is a little too interested in cats, so a home without them would be best. He gets along great with his foster sister,Junie, a terrier who is half is size. They play together all day.

Also, he would do best with older children. He's sorta a klutz when he gets excited and might knock over young children. He also gets anxious with young kids who might be too unpredictable and make strange noises.

Wheeler’s adoption fee is $250, and adopters must live within 175 miles of the Quad City Area.

Wheeler and K9 Kindness Rescue thank you for considering adoption through rescue for a new family companion!
