Jon's Info...

Jon's Story...
Jon was found wandering with his buddy, Ponch, close to Hobby Airport by animal control. They were taken to the city pound and because he is low heartworm positive he was going to be euthanized after the mandatory 72hr hold was up. What makes this really sad is that nothing extra needs to be done to treat a low heartworm positive dog. They just need to be given their monthly heartworm preventive pill (heartguard) like a normal dog. That's it?easy peasy. However, it was enough to get him on the fast track to the back room. Luckily, a kennel worker at the city pound noticed that he is well trained and very friendly. He contacted rescue groups to help save this boy.

Jon sits and shakes on command. The kennel worker also believes he is potty trained because he wouldn't go to the bathroom in his cage. There are probably several more things that Jon would love to show you he can do?especially for a hug or a treat. Please give this boy the home he deserves.

Jon is around 2-4yrs old. He is updated on shots, neutered, microchipped, and heartworm low positive. His adoption fee is $100.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jon, a Houston 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 Houston, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Houston.

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