Chief's Story...
This dog is not available through the Lab Rescue. If you are interested in meeting/adopting him please contact Four Paws Rescue at the number listed below his description. Thank you!

Chief is a 3 to 4yr old Labrador who is just a sweet, sweet boy. He is a tall, light-yellow male who weighs 78lbs. He is micro-chipped, neutered, healthy, heartworm negative (and on prevention), and looking for just the right home.

Chief is a big love sponge--he LOVES people. He is patient with children, but tends to ignore them. He simply prefers the company of adults and would probably be happiest in a home without children or with older children. (His current family has children, ages 5 and 8.) Chief is a wonderful companion and just wants to be with his people. He always happens to be wherever you are, but is never underfoot. Ever the gentleman, Chief always gets up to happily greet you when you come into the room. He sleeps curled up in his doggie bed and chases squishy squirrels in his dreams every night. He loves taking his morning round of the backyard--making sure things are as they should be and napping in the sun.

Chief is mellow and well behaved. He is trusted in his current home without the use of a crate. He enjoys going for rides in the car. He loves chasing balls and pulling the stuffing out of squeaky toys. He couldn’t care less about the vacuum cleaner, but please don’t come near him with bubble wrap. Bubble wrap and water running out of the hose seem to be the only two things that cause him concern.

Chief has one issue—he is completely dominant with other dogs. He is now trained to ignore other dogs when in a “sit” or “down”, but will always require a firm hand in any situation that involves other dogs. He is not a dog that you’ll be taking to the dog park, but he’s fine on-leash as long as you understand his need for firm commands and full attention when near other dogs. His mom can’t keep and eye on him and a 5yr old boy at the same time, so the decision has been made to find a home more suited to his needs.

Chief’s ideal home would be one where he is the only dog and a beloved companion to someone who will take him for long walks and throw a ball for him. He’d love a safe, fenced backyard to play in, but he should be an indoor dog and part of the family. He loves to sleep near you while you work or watch TV. He is just an awesome, happy boy and his family loves him very, very much.

If you feel that you are the right match for him and would like to meet sweet Chief, please call Lisa at (435) 752-3534 (leave message) or email us at scfourpaws@hotmail.com. The adoption fee for this dog is $125, which includes the spay/neuter. We show dogs by appointment only.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chief, a Provo 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 Provo, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Provo.

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