Spike's Story...
Spike is a happy 2 year old Lab/American Bulldog mix. Spike's owner had to move and could not take this big loverboy with him. He had him since he was a pup. Spike was kept outdoors on nice days in a fenced in yard and brought in every evening. He knows sit, paw and will sit up for attention. Spike has not been left alone indoors, so we don't know how he would handle the separation. He sometimes jumps or paws for attention and is very strong, so evaluate with young children. Spike was recently adopted and returned. He was destructive in the home when left alone. Spike is house trained. He likes other dogs but has not been around cats. He needs a family that will give him lots of exercise and be patient with his indoor training.

If you have kids and/or another dog in your family and are interested in adopting a Friendship dog please bring them with you for a meet and greet. No appointment is necessary. Stop by anytime during regular business hours.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Spike, a Elyria Labrador Retriever/American Bulldog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/American Bulldog for sale in Elyria, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/American Bulldog dog from a breeder in Elyria.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Elyria 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 Elyria 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/American Bulldog breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/American Bulldog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Elyria paves the way for another one to be saved.
