Ember's Story...
Meet Handsome Ember. Ember is the only male pup in the litter of 6. Ember was born 9-22-2016, and he weighs 10-15 pounds. Based on current age and weight, we believe he will grow to be a large dog which is 60-100 pounds. He and his siblings where dumped at a Chicago Fire house in a bin in very bad shape. Someone dropped them at the front door, and didn't even ring the door bell. They were very thin, dehydrated, loaded with worms, full of fleas so bad that they had dermatitis. Look at them now!!! They have fully recovered and doing so well. With great fosters, these pups have bloomed and are beautiful. He had her vet check on November 14th, and the vet said he looks fantastic. We aren't sure if they are all lab since we have no idea who the mom or dad was, but they certainly look like labs to us.

This pup is being fostered in a Lisle, IL foster home with two of his siblings Zoey and Lulu. Lisle is where you would go to meet her after an adoption application is submitted. 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 Once we receive the application we will process. It does take some time, so please be patient. Thank you. For additional information about our adoption process, please go to our website at and click on the forms tab. All applicants must live within 90 minutes of Naperville in order to be considered for adoption.

A home where someone isn't not gone all day would be best for this puppy. Puppies need a family who will have time to continue with house training and socialization. Keeping a puppy crated all day while your at work is not good for a puppy. I quick 30 minute break outside of a crate to come home for lunch in a 9 hour day is not enough.

At night when dogs sleep, their body systems and elimination slow down. This is why they can go all night without eliminating once they’re old enough to have sufficient bladder and bowel control. But during the day, neither puppies nor adult dogs should be crated for more than four or five hours at a time. When crating a puppy for more than two hours, it’s best to provide water by attaching a water bottle dispenser to the crate. (Using a bowl can create a mess.) Follow these daytime duration guidelines to avoid compromising your dog’s well-being or causing behavior problems:

Age Maximum time in crate
8-10 weeks 1-2 hours
11-14 weeks 1-3 hours
15-16 weeks 1-4 hours
17+ weeks 4-5 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.

The adoption fee of $350.00 includes:
Neutering when old enough
Dewormed with panacur, repeated about 2 weeks later
Given Albon
Revolution then repeated two weeks later for external parasites
Monthly Heartworm Preventative while in our care
Monthly Flea Prevenative while in our care
Up to date with DHPP puppy vaccination
Vet Checked
Rabies Vaccination if over 4 months
4dx testing if over 9 months.

This puppy is too young to be fixed. So you will receive a spay/neuter coupon to one of our participating vets to have that procedure done when old enough. There is fully refundable $100.00 spay/neuter deposit. We hold the check, and do not cash it. Once the puppy is fixed, you email us and we will void your check. The foster will explain that in more detail at the meet and greet.

You will also receive a free health exam visit to either Crest Hill Cat and Dog Clinic, Yorkville Animal Hospital, Midwest Animal Hospital in Orland Park, Springbrook Animal Hospital,Countryside Animal Clinic of Carol Stream or Naperville Animal Hospital.

An adoption application must be submitted prior to scheduling a meet and greet, and the adoption application can be found on-line on our website at If your seeing this pet up for adoption, he/she is available as we update regularly so there is no need to email asking if is still available.

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!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ember, a Naperville Labrador Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Naperville, or seeking a Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Naperville.

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