Tyler's Story...
We would like to explain that if you are looking for a perfect dog, they are rarely found in rescue. Our dogs often have unknown histories and we do our very best to evaluate each dog with kids, cats, and other dogs as well as determine how they behave in a home. It is important to understand that we have some specific criteria for each dog based on their backgrounds and input from their foster families. The purpose of these criteria is to better match each dog with an appropriate family. While a certain dog might appeal to you based on breed, size, gender or appearance, you may not match the listed criteria. Please understand that we are not trying to make adoption difficult—we are trying to make each adoption successful for the dog and the new family.


If you have children, we suggest that prior to applying for a dog, you view the website The information is excellent and can help you determine which dog would be right for your family.

Tyler is a great big puppy who was found after hunting season in North Dakota. He is now in foster care hoping for a hunting home although he doesn't want to stay outside in a kennel--he wants to be part of the family! The vet estimated Tyler to be around 11 months and he's currently 80 pounds. From the looks of his puppy paws, he still has some growing to do. Tyler is such a happy boy who loves everyone and wants to play with everyone--even the grumpy chihuahua in his foster home. He is likely to knock toddlers over so would do better with older kids. Tyler is house trained and he kennels well, but he needs a home where he won't be kenneled more than a couple hours a day. Tyler's foster dad is a hunter, and he says that Tyler is clearly from hunting stock and is very "birdy." He knows some basic commands already. Tyler's only bad habit is chewing things if he doesn't have chew toys of his own, but getting several hours of vigorous exercise each day diminishes his chewing. Tyler is with a 501c3 non profit rescue. His adoption fee is $350 and he is neutered, heartworm negative and on prevention, faintly positive for Lyme disease and on medication, up to date on immunizations and worming, and has a HomeAgain microchip.

To ensure that this dog thrives in his new home and that the adoption works out for the dog and your family, these are the requirements for adoption. These criteria are not negotiable. If you do not meet these criteria, please choose another dog that will work out better for your family.

• Homeowners: Required

• Status of adopter: Adults 25+

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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