Alex's Story...
Alex is a loyal and spry, 12 to 13-year-old, 55-pound, male Black Labrador Retriever-mix looking for a loving guardian. Volunteers at the Save-A-Pet shelter call Alex “a grand gentleman.” When he goes for his walks, he keeps a nice pace but always carries his leash in his mouth. Alex tends to bond very strongly with one person and becomes that person's “protector.” He has lived peacefully with cats, but he was never socialized with other dogs, so he is afraid of them. However, at the shelter, he can meet and greet another dog on leash with no problems. He especially doesn’t enjoy the energy of young dogs, or children for that matter. Since Alex is incredibly loyal and protective of his person, he’s probably best in a one adult dog-experienced home. Someone who will keep him safe on leash, in a crate, or in another room when people come to the home. To meet and possibly adopt Alex, please contact the Save-A-Pet shelter at adoptions@saveapetil.org or 847.740.7788. His adoption fee of $125 benefits the rescued dogs of Save-A-Pet, or only $25 through the SAP senior to senior program. He is a healthy older gentleman, de-wormed, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on preventative. You can meet Alex and all the other Save-A-Pet residents at the adoption center at 31664 N. Fairfield Rd., in Grayslake, Illinois, on Monday and Friday from 1:00 to 5:00 pm, Thursday from 1:00 to 8:00 pm, or Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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