Morris's Story...
My name is Morris,possibly a lab/flat coated retriever/aussie mix. Mom is lab, dad looks like a flat coated, but he was born with a bobbed tail. I'm the smallest of my brothers, 11 weeks old, and 21 lbs. Full grown, I might weigh in around 70 lbs. I have been cautious to what's going on around me, but recently I have become braver.
I am playful, bring my toys to you and bark with excitement when others are having fun, wanting to join in. Sometimes I like to cuddle on a lap. Leash training is going very well, and I even like to help walk my brothers! After not being a fan of the crate, being separate from my brothers, I am doing better gaining my independence. Housebreaking is going very well, as long as you remember to let me out. Someone should be home with me much of the day to continue my training and socialization. My foster mom says I need a strong leader, with previous puppy experience, that can keep up with my energy level.


Thank you for your interest in adopting!

A Journey Home is a 501c3, all foster/volunteer based rescue. Our rescues are living with families in their homes. We do not have a shelter.
If you are interested in adopting, please email to request an application. After your application has been received and given a preliminary approval, you will be contacted by an adoption coordinator who will conduct a phone interview. Final approval will be granted following a successful meet and greet with the entire family. You must be at least 21 years old to adopt.

A Journey Home does not do out-of-state adoptions on unaltered puppies. Spay/neuter surgery is not done on puppies under 6 months of age.
If adopting a puppy under the age of 6 months, we require that the adopter schedules the spay/neuter at our participating vet clinic when age appropriate.

Our standard adoption fee is $300, payable by cash or check. The fee includes spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccinations, fecal testing, deworming, flea and tick preventative, a free vet visit at one of our participating clinics, and micro-chipping.

First time pet owners will be required to sign up for a puppy/training class at a place of their choice. There will be an additional $50 added to your adoption fee, which will be refunded to you upon proof the class was completed.

Please note that breed and size are our best guesses, while ages are estimated by our vets and are not guaranteed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Morris, a South Elgin Labrador Retriever/Flat-Coated Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Flat-Coated Retriever for sale in South Elgin, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Flat-Coated Retriever puppy from a breeder in South Elgin.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in South Elgin 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 South Elgin 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/Flat-Coated Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Flat-Coated Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in South Elgin paves the way for another one to be saved.
