My story

Lapis is one of Rebecca's litter of 8, born July 23, 2016, in the safety of a foster home. Lapis was the smallest of the litter for a long time, but she's grown into a sleek, fun-loving beauty. She is the last one of her litter to find a forever home and we are hoping her perfect family will come along soon. Lapis loves EVERYBODY. She is very play-motivated and is a natural clown. She knows basic commands in both English and ASL (in ASL we use 'drop' for 'leave it'), and she's housebroken and crate trained. Lapis loves to wrestle with other dogs, so we don't recommend her for families with senior or anxious dogs and does best with calmer male dogs. Lapis most of all loves human attention

and would also be fine as an only dog. She is very agile and coordinated and we believe she would make an amazing agility dog. She loves bubbles, squeaky toys, and belly rubs. Lapis can be kind of shy on the first meeting…potential adopters think that means she doesn’t like them, but it’s really a question of her wanting to get to know people before opening up. Once she gets to know you, she’s as goofy and sweet as any dog we’ve ever met. We think she'd do best in a household with children ages 6 and up, or with a single person or couple who are able to give her plenty of love and attention.

Why adoption is a great option

Lapis-Adopted!, a Detroit Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Labrador Retriever for sale in Detroit, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Detroit.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Detroit 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 Detroit 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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Detroit paves the way for another one to be saved.
