Facts about Jester

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
**Jester is currently being fostered in Houston. Unfortunately, meeting him prior to his adoption will not be possible. Jester’s adoption donation is $500USD, which includes his flight, a new kennel, and he is fully vetted and healthy. Because the flights are so expensive, the adoption donation is non-negotiable.**

Jester came into rescue when his family made the very difficult decision to find a new family for him after their young child developed an increasing fear of him. This was not because of anything Jester did, the little one has become scared of dogs and the family has decided it is best for Jester to find a family that can better fit his needs. This was a very challenging decision for the family to make and we are glad they chose to ask us to help find his next chapter.

Jester is a roughly 6 year old black Lab who is in the 60 pound range and is not going to get any bigger. He is a mild-mannered guy who loves to be with his family. Jester would be well suited in an active family that can get him the exercise appropriate to his breed. He is older, so not a super active puppy, but he still needs a family dedicated to good exercise. He loves to go on adventures and to ride in the car.

 
Jeter’s great passion is retrieving a ball and I do mean any ball, anywhere, anytime, for as many times as you care to throw or chuck it.  We have a chuckit brand ball thrower because he loves going for the long ball.  He is a true lab through and through and can only think of retrieving when a ball is in his general vicinity.  Some labs have a tendency to run off but he does not have that problem.  We often spend time together in the front yard with Jeter while he is off of the leash and will hold his sit even when other dogs are present.  We can throw the ball to the neighbors front yard from ours and he will retrieve without deviation. 

Jester is fully house trained and would be great as an addition to a family with dogs or as a Bachelor dog. He has great manners with kids, but we think given his size, he would be best placed in a family with older children who know how to properly interact with dogs.

Jester should be adopted by a family who understands that he will take time and patience as he acclimates into his new life. He may have accidents, chew on things he is not supposed to, and bark in his kennel. It can take dogs a few weeks to properly acclimate to their new lives, so he is seeking a family that can give him this time and work with him in case this change is hard for him.

Jester should be adopted by a family who plans to keep him indoors as part of a family - we do not adopt dogs into situations in which they will be left outside for extended periods of time unattended (for example, the entire work day).

Jester is fully vetted (neutered, shots, microchip, heartworm tested - negative) and has no known health or allergy issues.

The first step in our adoption process is to fill out an application. This can be done via our website at www.reggiesfriends.org - please hover over the adoptables tab and the application will appear.

About Reggie's Friends - Baltimore

About Our Rescue Group...

Reggie’s Friends was founded out of our love for helping dogs. Living in a city of 1.2 million homeless animals, there was rarely a day when we didn’t see a dog in need of help. Instead of just wanting to do something, we figured out how to do something! Reggie’s Friends is dedicated to the health and welfare of dogs in and around the greater Houston, TX area. We focus our attention on street dogs and shelter cases that other rescues may not have the resources for. We live and love by our motto Street Life To Sweet Life.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process begins with an adoption application that can be found on our website at www.reggiesfriends.org under the Adoptables tab. Our team will then review the application, contact references, perform a vet-check, and request photos of the common areas of the house and yard that serve in lieu of a home visit. Following the completion of the application, we set up video chats either through Skype or Facetime between the foster and adoptive families.

Our adoption fee is $500, which includes the cost of transport and any relevant vet care appropriate to their age.

Guidelines to our basic adoption procedures can be found on our website under the adoptables tab.
