ALEX's Story...
Hello out there....I am Alex! I am a 2-4 yr old super handsome, super adorable, and super loveable Newfoundland/Labrador mix. I arrived as a stray, scared, unsure, and confused. A few days later, I was barking, wagging my tail, and giving out the LOVE! I am a very sensitive type and need a patient sensitive type of family to reassure me life from here on out is safe, stable, predictable, and loving. I have shown myself to get along with other dogs while here at the shelter and also to tolerate cats. Now if a cat should decide to run, I may interpret that as PLAY TIME! Otherwise I walk away, moving on to more interesting things. Since I am so sensitive and can have a bit of a worried look about me, I may pace and pant in my new home initially until I am shown that everything is going to be okay and I can get on a routine. This could take as little as a week or as long as a few weeks or more. It will be an adjustment and rescue animals need time to adjust. I don't want to have to worry about being hit, yelled at, or scolded harshly. I just want to be able have time to adjust and observe at first in my new home. This way I will quickly flourish, come out my little shell, and blossom into what we have seen here at PAWS as an absolutely beautiful boy, who loves to be hugged. loves to lean on you. is very trusting, and will give his whole entire heart and soul.

Alex is a fabulous boy needing structure and routine. He needs regular exercise and positive reinforcement to build his confidence and a home he can be showered with affection as he openly and comfortably receives it once he trusts. He is patient and is eager to please. A real gentle dog.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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