Valentino's Info...

Valentino's Story...
*We will only adopt within a 60 mile radius of Chicago, IL*

The adoption fee for Valentino is $275.00.

Our adoption fee includes: neuter, age appropriate shots, microchipping, and any other medical care Valentino may need while he is with us.

Valentino is 6 weeks old (as of 2/18/11). He is a Boxer/Lab mix puppy.

Valentino is just 1 of 4 puppies. His siblings are; Cupid, Lovie & Romeo.

Since he is so young he won't be available for adoption for a couple weeks - but we are taking adoption applications from interested adopters now.

Valentino is black & white. He is the most out-going of the puppies and he is really playful.

2/24/11 Update from Valentino's Foster Mom: He is weighing in at 5.2lbs right now. He is the most confident boy! He loves anything new. He is very curious and really smart, he loves to play with his toys! He loves to sleep in my arms on his back. If you are looking for a smart dog that will keep you entertained he is your man! He loves to aggravate his brothers. He also seems to like water. He is always trying to jump in my tub when Im giving the kids a bath. He reminds me of the dog from the little rascals.

*Obedience training is mandatory for all dogs adopted from our rescue. The choice of trainer is up to the adopter, unless otherwise noted in the bio. We do require an obedience deposit check in the amount of $200.00 at the time of adoption.

This is a refundable deposit. The check is stapled to the adoption contract and held in a file until we receive proof of completion for your training program.

The check will not be cashed if you complete training and provide us with proof, at which time the check is mailed back to you. The check will only be cashed if you do not complete training! *

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Valentino, a Calumet City Boxer/Labrador Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer/Labrador Retriever for sale in Calumet City, or seeking a Boxer/Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Calumet City.

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