Trooper's Story...
Trooper is going to be a very large dog. He is roughly 6 months old, and still needs a good amount of training. He is leash trained, but will be working with experienced dog handlers at the shelter to brush up on his training. He lives up to the Newfoundland breed description of “Gentle Giant” already; he is loving and friendly and wants nothing more than to climb into your lap. He ambles around on his large paws, clumsy as can be. He does well with children, cats, and other dogs; we would recommend children be over age 4 due to Trooper’s clumsy nature and the possibility of him knocking littler children down. He appears to be housebroken and keeps a clean kennel area. Trooper’s front paws tend to splay out, which we’ve been told may be caused by the mixing of large breed to small breed dogs. (This said, "Lab" may not be the second breed, but it is our "best guess".) We are hoping to have him checked by the vet to verify this information. However, an experienced dog handler has assured us he will grow up and behave just like any other dog, but may have some limitations on his overall daily exercise. He is an adorable big guy who doesn’t let a little thing like “weak ankles” get to him!  Pictures do not do this big boy justice; adoptive families are encouraged to come meet him and fill out an application, or fill out an application online.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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