Lil Red's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Lil Red's Story...
I just want to take things slow. See, I have spent my life in a pretty bad situation—one home with 24 dogs living in it—so I’ve never really received the love or socialization I deserve. Now that I am somewhere brand new, things are feeling a bit upside down. As you can imagine, this is a confusing time, and I’m feeling pretty insecure at the moment. Now don’t get me wrong, I do love people but have had so many strangers in and out of my life that I wanna really get to know someone before handing over my heart. So if I seem shy, just give me a little time to warm up. I’m not the type of gal to kiss and hug on the first date, if ya know what I mean, so only gentle children 5+ for me. Other dogs and cats would be A-OK in my new home. I just want to feel comfortable knowing that the person I give my love to will give it in return and do so gently. I like cuddling on the couch and following you around the house, Oh I just love being a sidekick! I have been doing well with my crate training and would love to continue it wherever my new life takes me. I sure hope it takes me home with you! 1½ years old-49lbs. My adoption fee is $200 and includes spay, microchip & registration, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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