Rocky's Story...
Little baby Rocky, as you can see, is all about his groceries. He IS a growing boy, after all! Rocky was found abandoned in an industrial office park as a very tiny puppy. We think he was born around the first or second week of Jan. 2007. After being left to fend for himself in freezing temperatures, Rocky's life was saved by an animal lover, who brought the little guy to safety. Rocky was in need of nutritious food, a trip to the vet and lots of TLC. He quickly got all 3 and is now thriving, healthy and happy. Rocky seems to have put his humble beginnings far behind him and is ready to find a permanent family who will love him forever and take good care of him. Being a Labrador mix, Rocky will grow to be a fairly large dog (although not huge). He will need room to run and play and would do best as a member of an active family. When he is a little older, Rocky would make someone an excellent jogging buddy. Labs and Lab mixes are famous for their intelligence, so we would like to find an adopter for Rocky who will participate with him in basic obedience classes a few months down the road. After all, every puppy deserves the chance to learn the rules, so he can successfully transition into his new home (and from puppyhood to adulthood). Rocky is a very loving puppy and would be great with kids and/or with other dogs. As young as he is now, he could probably learn how to peacefully co-exist with cats, as well. Our $175 adoption fee helps offset the cost of 3 rounds of puppy boosters, vet exam, worming and neuter. To meet Rocky is to fall in love with him. You couldn't ask for a more special guy to share your home and heart with. If you would like to make Rocky a permanent member of your family, please complete our online application today:

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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