Ducky's Story...
Name: Ducky
Breed: Lab mix
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Male

Ducky is a young adult male Lab mix who is hoping to find a good home with time to train, explore, walk and run, and adventure together with someone. He's a very smart dog who is outgoing and friendly. He loves kids, is great with other dogs. Ducky is house trained, crate trained, knows some basic commands. Ducky REALLY likes other dogs, and is a little pushy when meeting them... he's quite sure every dog he meets loves him when in fact they'd prefer to meet him first. He rooms with a cat he does well with, although he will sometimes harass him to play. He especially likes off leash hikes, has a good recall, and is very responsive to positive reinforcement, even more than treats. Ducky is used to sharing the bed with his human at night, which is only fair after a day in the crate, right? He does require a higher quality dog food to maintain his nice skin and coat, right now he eats Wellness Core available at PetSmart. This dog has a lot to offer and is asking for a family with time to give him. He has a hard time with big changes so will be tough the first week or two learning a new house training routine, needing a lot of extra exercise, and someone with patience to help him adjust-- he's so worth it.

Requirement: Home with a yard, would love another dog to play with

You can email with questions and for a preadopt application. This dog has been spayed/neutered, vaccinated as age appropriate, tested for heartworm disease if age appropriate, and dewormed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ducky, a Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

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