Patrick's Story...
Patrick is a extremely sweet and very handsome black lab/flat coat retriever. He is about 2-3 years of age and a bit skinny (although, with his long gorgeous coat, you would never know) and needs to pick up about 5-10lbs. He is an average size weighing about 60lbs, should be 65-70lbs. Patrick came from a very high kill shelter and his time was nearing. A volunteer from that shelter actually pulled him boarded him with her vet just to keep this boy alive. He is such sweet boy that this volunteer could not bear to lose him. He is a bit shy and somewhat a fraidy cat, but with some time and patience, his confidence will build and he will be the great dog that he was meant to be. He warms up quickly to the humans and just wants so badly to be loved. He is good with other dogs, good with cats and can go in a home with older children (12+), men or women. He would also make a great dog for a single person as no competition for attention would be preferred. He would love to have a human all to himself. He takes treats nicely, okay on lead and is crate trained. He appears to have good house manners, but a good obedience course will only benefit his great personality and further his socialization to new situations. As you can see, looks are not an issue for this boy, he is handsome, handsome, handsome. Patrick is neutered, up to date on all vaccinations and is heartworm negative. He is micro chipped, and kept on flea, tick and heartworm prevention. If you would like to adopt this charming lovable boy, please fill out an online application and request him on the notes section.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Patrick, a Salem Labrador Retriever/Flat-Coated Retriever dog 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 Salem, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Flat-Coated Retriever dog from a breeder in Salem.

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