Sassafras's Story...
Hey friends! I'm Sassafras, an adorable Labrador/Cattle Dog mix lady born in April of 2016. I'm a petite gal weighing around 25 pounds.

I have been through a lot so far in my short life, but it has only made me stronger! I was brought to MaxFund by a nice lady after being hit by a car in Arkansas to get the medical attention I needed. I had a broken leg and severely injured tail. I had to have my tail amputated and my leg has healed well so I can play now! The injury to my tail caused a lot of nerve damage so I am not able control when I go to the bathroom. I am a truly resilient girl who is still full of love, life, and energy and just like any other young pup I am eager to find my perfect forever home! I have a radiant and spunky personality that will surely win you over in no time. I am very friendly and love everyone I meet! Did I mention how affectionate I am too? I love to give gentle kisses and roll over for a good belly rub. The folks here say that I am just the sweetest lady ever!

Since I am still young I hope to find a home that will teach me all the basics! I would love to work on my grown-up manners and basic commands with you. I am smart, eager to learn and ready to be the best possible me! I am also active and love to run and play! I'd love to join you for daily walks and adventure into the outdoors together. I seem to get along with other pooches, but I will need to meet any potential fur siblings before we head home together!

How could anyone resist me? Just look at my endearing face! Ask to meet me today and see for yourself how wonderful I am. I am also available to be fostered. Please ask the front desk or call the shelter at 303-595-4917 for more information on becoming a foster parent.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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