Rizzo's Story...
Meet Rizzo, a sweet, energetic 1 year old 51# lab mix. Rizzo has the typical lab puppy energy and would do best in a home with either older or no children because of his size and energy. Rizzo has a high prey drive, so it is best that his forever home doesn't have any cats or smaller animals for him to chase. His mix may have a herding breed which gives him the chase behavior. Rizzo rolls on his back loving to have his belly rubbed and also loves to cuddle. He knows basic commands such as sit and lay down, and would benefit having some further training to help him walk nicely on a leash. A fenced yard is preferred so he can run and play safely. An active regular walker/ runner would be great also. Rizzo would love to have his forever family to spend the holidays with! That's what he told Santa!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rizzo, a St. Charles 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 St. Charles, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in St. Charles.

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