Murphy's Story...
Murphy is a big, beautiful yellow lab boy, about 5 years old. He loves to go for walks and sniff and explore everything along the way! He gets along well with other dogs, and is very gentle with children (that's 9-month old foster-granddaughter Kate in the background). Murphy loves to ride in the car, and mostly just wants to be wherever his 'people' are. He has a bit of arthritis in his hind legs, and is taking glucosamine supplements to help. He would be most comfortable in a house with no (or very few) stairs. He is a wonderful dog and will make a great family companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Murphy, a Palatine/Kildeer/Buffalo Grove 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 Palatine/Kildeer/Buffalo Grove, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Palatine/Kildeer/Buffalo Grove.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Palatine/Kildeer/Buffalo Grove 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 Palatine/Kildeer/Buffalo Grove 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 Palatine/Kildeer/Buffalo Grove paves the way for another one to be saved.
