Elton's Info...

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

Elton's Story...
Elton is a very happy, handsome and sweet, people-loving, three-year-old, 62 pound, male Chocolate Lab/Terrier-mix looking for a loving guardian.

Elton is extremely loving and handleable. He is crate-trained and housebroken when kept on schedule. He knows the command “sit” and takes treats ever so gently and appreciatively from your fingers.

Elton does not appear to enjoy fetching, but his tail is always happily wagging. He has select dog friends at the kennel that he plays with daily.

Elton is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative.

To meet and possibly adopt Elton, please contact Melia at melia88@comcast.net for an adoption application. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued dogs of Lucky Dog Rescue. He is being kenneled in Union, Illinois.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Elton, a Chicago Labrador Retriever/American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Chicago.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago 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 Chicago 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/American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
