Facts about Knight

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Knight and his (3) siblings came into rescue as the last of a large litter that their former owner could not place. The pups are approx 4-5 months old and are adorable. They will be medium to large dogs when full grown. The pups were a bit shy and nervous when first arriving at the rescue but this is normal since most dogs need time to adjust, especially when coming to a place where there are numerous other dogs. They have since settled in and are very friendly and want attention. Knight is the most outgoing male and was the second in the litter to venture out for some love. He is sweet and loving but will also be a great protector. Knight will be neutered on 5/31/2017and will be ready to join his new family anytime after that date. The pups will make great family companions and would love a large yard to play in and some kids and other dogs would be great too. Cats will probably be fine since these are puppies..simply introduce them immediately and set the ground rules early on. The pups will benefit from training as they have not had any that we are aware of and are new additions here so they have not really had much of an opportunity to learn much here yet. They have been socialized and interacted with by their former owner so there should not be any fear issues, other than the normal insecurity of going into a new place-which is cured by a few days to a week of patience and earning trust/respect. Again, since these are puppies, there should be a fairly easy transition into a new routine and easy acceptance of their new lifestyle, whatever that may be. If interested in adopting one of the siblings, please email your interest and adoption application or call us at (352)493-1255 for more information. The pup's adoption fees will be $150 each and will help to cover the cost of vetting and daily care while with us.

About Paws & Claws

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small rescue started in September 2004. To date, we have adopted out over 250 dogs and cats who may not have had a second chance. We rescue the majority of our pets from kill shelters and have them thoroughly vetted prior to going to their new homes. All of our pets are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, heartworm checked(dogs) and dewormed. We also microchip our dogs so that they can always find their way home. Big and small, we work to rehome them all. We are always in need of donations so if you can help us to help our pets, please contact us! The more people who get involved, the more pets that we can save! You can also see our pets and/or fill out our adoption application on www.petfinder.com. We look forward to hearing from you and making that "forever match"!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We operate from our home so our pets can be seen by appointment only. Please call or e-mail(prefer) to schedule a time to visit.

Our Adoption Process...

We require an adoption application to be filled out and approved prior to any adoption. Our adoption fee for our dogs is $125.00 and up and for most of our cats that still require vetting it is $75.00. We currently have a special adoption fee for our cats who are already completely vetted(spayed/neutered and UTD vacc )You can adopt one of these kitties for ONLY $25.00!!! If for any reason a pet that you adopt can not remain with you, we require that the pet be returned to Paws & Claws to be rehomed.We do NOT give refunds for any reason so please consider adoption carefully before you take a pet home. We also ONLY accept CASH as payment for our adoption fees.Our main requirement to adopt is LOVE! If you can offer love to a needy pet, please consider adoption. Your reward will be a devoted friend for life.
