Joey's Info...

Joey's Story...
Pups - even big pups - just want to have fun! I may be all grown up on the outside, but I still like to bounce and play. I'm a very good natured dog; I am crate trained and walk well on a leash, and I am learning my basic commands. I like other dogs, especially ones my own size, as long as they'll play with me. I am inquisitive about cats - mostly friendly but sometimes they don't understand that, so gradual introductions would be in order. Because I am a little boisterous, I might do better with older children. I would probably do better in a house, and/or getting a lot of exercise - any runners out there? Cuz there's a big goofy friendly boy here who would looove to be your friend! My current weight is 54 lbs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Joey, a Houston Labrador Retriever/Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Collie for sale in Houston, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Collie 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/Collie breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
