Rosco's Story...
Do cute, submissive dogs bore you? Rosco is a good-looking young dog with a lot of spirit. When he does something, he does it with energy and flair. Although he is very intelligent and has a strong personality, like any great dog Rosco needs to belong to someone with all his heart. It is vitally important to him to please his people. He is eager to learn and soaks up what you teach him. Rosco is about two and a half years old. He weighs about 45 pounds but is surprisingly strong and athletic. He loves tug-of-war and will jump high in the air after a frisbee. He's also very affectionate and loves the quiet times when he might rest halfway on your lap and get stroked and lick you gently. Rosco gets along with other dogs. He is unlikely to start a fight, but he won't back down from one either. Rosco is primarily focused on his people. You can get and hold his attention even if another dog is going crazy a few feet away. He is a protector. He may take on the job of guarding his home, and might not let someone get close to you if he thinks they are dangerous. It is your job to channel this energy, which may surface after he bonds with you. If you can make it clear you are the pack leader, Rosco may not feel the job of protector has fallen on his shoulders. This doesn't mean you can't take Rosco anywhere. He likes to meet other people and dogs and has lived with other dogs for much of his life. This is a very smart, loyal dog who can be a wonderful companion. He's also a rascal!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rosco, a Los Alamitos Labrador Retriever/Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Border Collie for sale in Los Alamitos, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Border Collie dog from a breeder in Los Alamitos.

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