George's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

George's Story...
George was the most precocious of all the puppies in his litter. He was the first to have his playful and spirited personality emerge and he loved being loved on and played with while sitting in a lap. He has since grown into a sweetheart of a giant with a proclivity for jumping (his fosters are working on that) and snuggling (no adjustments needed).

George was adopted when he was 2 months old and named Gotham. He has been well trained and cared for, however due to the increasing time commitment of a growing family, his adopters feel they can no longer give him the attention and socialization he needs and deserves and have asked for our help finding him a new home.

He's intelligent, respectful and playful, but a little insecure due to lack of proper socialization which can make him defensive (but not aggressive) at the dog park. He gets overwhelmed when "ganged-up on" by big dogs and reacts in fear to them a little, but he's very responsive to reassuring verbal cues and does very well when introduced calmly one at a time. He displays some protective behaviors on leash, barking at passerby's, so it would be helpful for him to find a family that can set appropriate boundaries for that trait.

He's 6 months old with a healthy dose of puppy still in him. Which means he minds well, once his puppy energy wears out and his dog brain takes back over control of his body. He's a large mixed-breed puppy, currently at about 50 lbs, but he doesn't always know it! He needs a family that will socialize, exercise, and continue to train him. He's healthy, neutered, good with small children and other dogs (cats are unknown) and fully house and crate trained.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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