My story

Up for adoption in Texas: Lucy.

Lucy is a one-year-old, 67-pound girl that loves people, toys, treats, and playtime.

She is smart and has the most soulful eyes. She was picked up as a stray and we think she may have never lived in a home or family setting before. Lucy needed a bit of let's say, "refinement."

Lucy has been staying with an amazing positive reinforcement trainer where she has learned basic manners to help her be the best housemate and companion she can be. She has learned how to appropriately seek out attention from her humans and sit and wait patiently to receive affection. She has learned when to relax and be calm. She’s an excellent listener, even when interested in something. Her trainer has a pig and Lucy loves to sniff him when he's napping. But when her trainer asks her to "leave it" Lucy will stop what she’s doing and pay attention. She gets a lot of treats and positive reinforcement for leaving things that are not safe for her to interact with or explore.

Lucy walks well on a leash, is crate trained. She loves toys, tummy rubs, snuggles, and enrichment activities like foraging for special treats and solving puzzles. She needs physical and mental stimulation.

Lucy would do best in an active home with someone that is home quite a bit. She would do best with a job, like agility or any activity she can do alongside her favorite human. She really enjoys socializing with other dogs in the training program and met many dogs of different breeds and sizes. She would do well with another dog in her forever home. We'd recommend a meet and greet with anyone who has a current dog.

Lucy needs an outlet for her energy. As she matures, these tendencies should level out, but consistency in expectations is the best way to manage energy and behavior. Because of her size and puppy-like behaviors, kids 13+ are best.

Her trainer has offered to continue working with Lucy and her new family when she’s adopted. So that's great news!

Lucy is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and housebroken. Apply at

Why adoption is a great option

Lucy, a DFW Labrador Retriever/Mixed Breed (Large) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Mixed Breed (Large) for sale in DFW, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Mixed Breed (Large) dog from a breeder in DFW.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in DFW 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 DFW 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/Mixed Breed (Large) breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Mixed Breed (Large) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in DFW paves the way for another one to be saved.
