My story

Andy, Andy, Bo Bandy, Banana Manna Mo Mandy, Fee Fy Fo Fandy… Aaaaaaandy.

You remember that song, right? Silly, funny, and the stuff regrettable life-long nicknames are made of. Hard to deny Bo Bandy is catchy though, am I right?? Just like the song, our guy Andy is silly, super fun, and just a happy go lucky kinda dude. Andy is still just a pup at around 9 months old, but he's worked out all of those annoying puppy problems. This handsome guy is house and crate trained, walks well on leash, and is gentle and super affectionate. He loves water and swimming, and is a pretty top notch co-pilot too. A bit timid when he first came into rescue, Andy’s foster mom has seen him thrive in her home with her resident dogs showing him the ropes. We think a relatively relaxed household with a fun, confident dog sibling would be perfect to help this little guy live his best life and gain some confidence. Andy’s great with big kiddos as well, but needs consistency to show him that two leggers aren't so bad after all, so a home without little littles would be best. We don't always know the backstory when pups come into rescue, but it’s obvious Andy likely went through a period in his short life where he was not treated kindly by humans. But he holds no grudges about the past and is truly just the sweetest very good boy. We can't wait to see him find his happily ever after and finally get the love and care all very good boys deserve. Read on to learn more about bringing Andy Bo Bandy (had to throw it in one last time) home for good.

Andy is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and current on flea/tick and heartworm preventative. This dog has tested negative for heartworms. The adoption fee is $450 if your adoption is prepaid and final prior to your dog's arrival. An additional $50 will be charged on dogs that are picked up from our Southbury CT adoption center, adopted at an event, or foster home. This additional fee is necessary in order to comply with CT HB 5368.

An additional $100 fee will be added for any dogs picked up from the Woburn MA quarantine facility. This additional fee is necessary in order to comply with MA Order 405-CD-12 and Order 1-AHO-05.

Why adoption is a great option

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

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