Trouble's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Trouble's Story...
Trouble is a 7 year old neutered black male lab who weighs 55 pounds but could stand to add a few.

Trouble is a friendly dog who likes to be petted and to be with you. He is easy going and doesn't think running around like crazy is necessary any more - he thinks taking a nice walk with his buddy is the way to go. He will chase a ball or toy but hasn't started bringing it back yet. He obviously has been someone's pet and is now looking for a place to be able to curl up and give some lucky person some great company.

Trouble is approved for kids 10 and up. He is good with other dogs but we have no cat history. He knows some commands and walks good on lead.

Trouble belies his name as he is no trouble at all.

UPDATE: "Trouble" has certainly been anything but trouble at his foster home! It's hard to think that this sweet boy ever deserved such a name, so his foster family has affectionately been referring to him as buddy, boy, or love. He's been to a soccer game and enjoyed the car ride there, and watching the teenagers run and chase the ball, plus all the affection he received while there. He's not a velcro boy that gets under your feet, but if you are sitting down, he will try to get in your lap or be as close to you as possible. He sleeps soundly and deeply, even snoring a bit, which thankfully his teenage foster sister (whom he sleeps with at night) doesn't mind! He doesn't seem to need to chase squirrels on his walks, and walks calmly past other dogs. He's a quiet boy, and so incredibly sweet. This is a super great, loving dog, who is going to make an amazing family member!

Trouble is just the very best dog. He does great on his walks, no harness needed. He doesn't pull at all. He went to the dog park and interacted very well with all other dogs and people. We feel pretty sure that he'd been happy to go home with just about anyone. My daughter commented on her observation that he isn't very "loyal" - he loves up to anyone. He is housetrained and has been easily crated with no issues. This boy is just a dream.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Trouble, a Rockville 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 Rockville, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Rockville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Rockville 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 Rockville 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 Rockville paves the way for another one to be saved.
