Spanky's Info...

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

Spanky's Story...
Spanky is a 2 year old, 80 pound black lab whose owner died in November--and her family let him live alone with another lab in the house for 8 months! Family members came over twice a day to feed the dogs and let them out and that was the only human companionship the dogs had for all this time. So Spanky is extremely happy with life on a hobby farm where there are other dogs and people around most of the time. He is a very easy-going dog who doesn't chase cats, birds, chickens, goats or horses. He shows no interest in hunting and would rather stretch out under the willow for a nap after he helps foster dad do the chores. He is great with the grandchildren who are as young as 4 and doesn't jump up on them at all. Spanky never leaves the farm so would be fine without a fenced yard. He would be happiest with a home where someone is home much of the time. A suburban home, hobby farm or regular farm would be fine for Spanky just so he isn't left home alone a lot. He will not be a running partner as he had a leg broken as a puppy. It is well healed and he is not limping but we would prefer he not run a lot. Spanky is house trained and crate trained. He was initially fearful of a collar and leash but he is doing well learning to walk on a leash. He can actually go for walks without a leash and stays right by the person who is walking him. Spanky is with a 501c3 non profit rescue. His $250 adoption fee covers his neuter, heartworm test and pill, shots, worming, flea/tick prevention and HomeAgain microchip.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Spanky, a Osseo 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 Osseo, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Osseo.

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