Harper's Story...
Harper is 7 years old and has suffered a lifetime of abuse at the hands of his previous "owner". He was chained outside, in the cold, rain, wind, etc. He is an angel inside the house and really enjoys his dog bed. Harper is VERY sweet, loves everyone and loves attention. He is great on a leash. He is on the skinny side, but we are working on putting weight on him. He is a gentle soul who deserves to live out his remaining years in a loving home. PLEASE help Harper find his forever home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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