Alex's Info...

Alex's Story...
Alex is a handsome young boy.  If you like Labs but want a smaller sized dog then Alex is a great choice.  He is just over 30 lbs and has a slimmer build.  He is approximately a year old and is a friendly and playful pet.  He would do well in just about any situation and would be an ideal second dog.


Here is what his foster mom had to say about Alex:


Alex has quickly and easily adjusted to home living. He's been a true delight to have around. He's extremely affectionate and loves to snuggle and cuddle with everyone. He's a quiet boy indoors and out, yet super alert and quick on his feet. When out for a walk, he's eager to meet and greet every passer-by and especially loves a good squirrel chase (within a fenced area of course!). Alex is a super sweet boy who's gentle disposition is sure to warm hearts and bring joy wherever he goes.


Alex is super social and friendly with other dogs and people. He has not shown any aggression whatsoever towards people. He welcomes being petted and acknowledged. He does show a slight shyness (backing off a bit) towards adult men, but he seems to readily get over his shyness if verbally reassured that this person is "ok".


Alex gets along very well with my 8 year old Golden Berner Cross. Alex seems to respect that she is older and not interested in playing that much with him by giving her "'space". Alex wants to meet and greet every dog that he encounters outdoors. He is very appropriate in sniffing and interacting with them whether on leash or running loose in a fenced in dog park.


Alex has not needed to be crated. He has been a perfect gentleman in respecting household items, and has not been destructive in any way. He has been left for several hours with my own dog, and he just seems to accept this. Alex is definitely not a barker. I heard him vocalize a rare few times, but he is generally a very quiet boy in the house. Alex is fully house trained and is in the process of learning his basic commands and how to walk nicely on a leash. He rides very well in a car and shares the backseat very respectfully with my Golden Berner Cross.


Alex definitely wants to be a family member who can hang out and be a part of whatever's going on. He can be left for several hours (probably a full work day) without having an accident in the house or becoming destructive.


Overall, I think that Alex will make a wonderful companion for a family that is willing to do basic command and leash training with him, and who can devote the time that he needs for exercise and play. He is a super super sweet little guy who won my heart within minutes of meeting him.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Alex, a Hamilton 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 Hamilton, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Hamilton.

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