Shadow's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Shadow's Story...
Shadow has assimilated into our home seamlessly, he is a sweet boy that loves his humans, he will be a cinch to train because of this. Since arriving he's made friends with our cats as well. He listens intently to instructions and wants to please. Shadow is a young dog and weighs approximately 45 lbs.

Here is what else his foster family had to say:

Shadow is very loving and loves to cuddle. He's really good when company arrives, he sniffs, doesn't jump and doesn't bark. He is good with other dogs but is more focused on his people. He is still a very young boy and will need some further training but overall he listens well and is very eager to please. He loves everyone but may be too much for very young children but he'll be a lovely addition to someone's family.

Shadow is a wonderful, loving companion that just loves to be loved and loves to be with his family. Being a young dog he is still learning about manners but he is coming along very well. He is a very quiet dog overall in the home. If he makes a noise it is a very low snort and that is it. He is kind to all in the home but I have older children and as I mentioned above, he may be too much for young children until he is fully trained. He is fine with our dog but at first he wanted to chase the cats however he has become much more respectful of them now. He is not shy with anyone and makes friends easily with strangers.

We didn't crate Shadow in the beginning and he had a habit of collecting our shoes and putting them in a pile when we were out of the house. We recently started crating him and he should probably be crated until he can be fully trusted in the home. He is good on walks and is not afraid of traffic or much of anything. He is very good playing with balls and toys and loves a good game of tug-o-war.

Shadow is a real mooch and we have been teaching him that he needs to sit and stay in order to get his food or treats. At this time I believe he would steal food if left out. He is pretty good about coming when called and will definitely sit for treats or food but is still working on his stay. He is very good about dropping anything on command. He walks well on a leash and he rides very well in the car. He likes to sleep with my daughter at night.

Shadow would be a great dog for a couple or a family with older children. He will need someone that is willing to continue with his training for him to reach his full potential but he is coming along very nicely. He would be fine with another friendly dog in the home although he seems to like to play beside them rather than with them, and seems to prefer his humans. I believe he would adapt to a home with cats.

If would like to give this sweet boy a loving home, please submit an application for consideration.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shadow, a Hamilton 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 Hamilton, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Hamilton.

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