Packer's Story...
NOTE: This dog is not with the Utah Lab Rescue. If you have any questions at all, or would like to adopt him, you MUST contact the Utah/Idaho Vizsla Rescue at the below numbers and/or e-mail. The Lab Rescue does not have any more information on this dog other than what is posted. This is a referral listing for the Utah/Idaho Vizsla Rescue. Thanks!

Packer is a choc Lab/Vizsla mix who was owner released to a shelter because they were moving and couldn't take him. He is a tall thin boy at 62-lbs with the shorter coat of a vizsla and a roo-roo to match, doesn't know a stranger. He is a high-drive fetching machine, good with kids, cats and dogs of all sizes, friendly & outgoing, impeccable house manners, comes to call on a trail, and crate trained. Some of the commands he knows are SIT, DOWN, KENNEL UP, WAIT (at the door). The shelter thought he was 2-yrs old (no doubt because he is full of puppy energy) but our vet thinks he is closer to 5-yrs old based on his teeth. His intake form said good with kids of all ages, dogs, cats and livestock but we think he may too rambunctious for very young children. He has reportedly been hunted.

Packer is looking for a home with an active family that will take him hiking, running, camping, hunting, etc as opposed to being an *at home dog* because this dog is just sure the entire world there to be his buddy!(Packer is in Boise ID in a foster home with the Vizsla Rescue)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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