Nitro's Story...
Nitro is an 8 year old Rottie mix who was originally adopted as a puppy. His male human has since remarried and the new wife is allergic. This big boy is quite nice and passed his behavior test with flying colors. Mostly he just wants to be a couch potato and would do well in most any home. He gets along with other pets but I doubt he would be thrilled with a puppy playmate as he is just a quiet, gentle adult. His foster family says he is absolutely no trouble at all and enjoys "just hangin" with his humans and dog pal.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Racine 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 Racine 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 Rottweiler/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Rottweiler/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Racine paves the way for another one to be saved.
