Dezzie's Story...
Hi there, it's me, Dezzie, and I am one sweet girl who absolutely loves to cuddle and has so much love left to give. Since the second I arrived at Young at Heart, I have melted into the lap of anyone who has sat with me - I am so happy to be safe and I love my humans! I am a 10-year-old Labrador mix who is new to the rescue, but I am settling in with my foster family and I am doing very well! I am house trained, love to go on walks, and while I am doing my best to get to know my canine housemate, it has taken me a little while to warm up to her. If I go to a family with other dogs, I would ask that you please give me time to adjust to my new friends. I am a sweet girl, I'm just a bit protective of my space with other dogs, but I am always kind and gentle with my humans. Since the weather is getting cold, and winter is quickly approaching, you're going to need someone to keep you warm, so look no further than me! I'd love to snuggle on the couch with you while it snows outside! Please contact the rescue to find out more about me, I'll be waiting to hear from you!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dezzie, a Palatine 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 Palatine, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Palatine.

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