Luke's Info...

Luke's Story...
LUKE is a 6-year-old, 77-lb. yellow lab/American bulldog mix. He was on a shelter list to be euthanized because he tested positive for heartworm. We don't believe it is right to put down an adoptable dog when he has a treatable illness. So we took him into our care. This handsome boy was surrendered to the shelter by his family due to financial reasons. While Luke sometimes barks and gives a stranger the cold shoulder at first, he soon warms up and welcomes a scratch behind the ears and a walk. Luke's reluctance to immediately befriend everyone may be due to the fact that he is feeling confused or uncertain in his strange new environment, missing the home and family that was his security.

But with each day we see Luke become more relaxed and confident. He is going to be an excellent addition to someones family.This boy is very strong and pulls hard on the leash. Labs are people pleasers though, and can learn to walk politely on a leash if you are willing to be a patient teacher. His adoption fee is on a sliding scale of $100-$150; you choose the amount that is right for you.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Luke, a Cedar Rapids 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 Cedar Rapids, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Cedar Rapids.

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