HANK's Story...
Hank is a 2 year old sweet, exuberant boy with a larger-than-life personality. Once he looks at you with complete adoration in his eyes and his big, goofy grin, you will be hooked, as was his rescuer.

Hank did not have a good start in life; he was a street dog who ran the neighborhood for months. The burn scars on his back and emaciated condition pointed to an unfortunate past and an uncertain future, at best. After months of offering food and kind words, his rescuer began to gain his trust. He finally broke through and jumped in the car before a night of freezing temperatures.

Miraculously, Hank became a happy and friendly 'lap dog' in a short time. His whole body wiggles when his friends come to visit. He knows "Sit" and learns new activities, like fetch, easily.

Though not purebred, our research leads us to believe Hank's primary lineage is American Bulldog, mixed with "Mystery Breed". He exhibits one of the breed's greatest qualities: loyalty to his owner. Hank is strong-willed, but food-motivated, making him easily trainable for his owner. He is grateful for any affection or food reward he receives.

Hank is neutered and microchipped, and is up to date on vaccinations, heartworm- and flea-preventative.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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