Dexter's Story...
Dexter is a lovely big one year old baby. He is such fun and full of life and love. He enjoys human contact and has shown no aggression with any of the other dogs here. We have a play area where he rips around chasing a ball, frisbee and anything else we can find. He will be a great family dog, but for a family with older children as he is quite big and may knock over little ones. Dexter has so much energy that he does not do well being left alone for very long and needs lots of exercise. He also needs someone to be around most of the time to reinforce his house breaking training. He has adorable floppy ears that make him look so cute.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dexter, a Westerly Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog for sale in Westerly, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Westerly.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Westerly 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 Westerly 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/German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Westerly paves the way for another one to be saved.
