ALEXIS, N.C. – Tri-County Animal Rescue will be hosting a HUGE adoption event this weekend at PetSmart in Gastonia. We will be available with dogs and cats Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Please come out and Adopt…don’t buy!
Tri-County Animal Rescue has six Labrador Retriever mixed pups as our Pet of the Week. We have four boys and two girls. They are 11 weeks old and full of puppy energy. They are non-stop puppy machines. They have no fear. They love all people and other pets. They are light tan/white in coloring. They have short hair so grooming is a bath and towel dry. They will be medium dogs as adults. They are spayed/neutered, current on vaccines and micro-chipped. Please come meet these little babies this weekend.
The Labrador Retriever is one terrific family dog -- given enough vigorous exercise (preferably including swimming and fetching games) and not just a walk around the block once a day. Too much confinement and not enough exercise can lead to rambunctiousness and destructive chewing.
One of the best dogs for children of all ages, Labrador Retrievers are kindly, good-natured, and take most things in stride. Most Labrador Retrievers are very friendly with everyone, though compared to Golden Retrievers, many Labs are just a bit more conservative with their affections. Also more independent -- though quite biddable and responsive to obedience training, some Labrador Retrievers can have a noticeable stubborn streak. Some have necks like bulls and barely notice tugs on the leash.
You must control this breed's tendency to chew on objects and to mouth your hands -- provide a box filled with toys that he can carry around in his mouth. The Labrador Retriever matures slowly, remaining a spirited teenager for several years, which sounds fun . . . but does require patience and training to manage.
If you want a dog who…
Is large and bouncy, with an enthusiastic attitude toward life
Has a short easy-care coat
Has a cheerful, tail-wagging nature
Thrives on exercise and athletic activities
Is steady-tempered and dependable with everyone
Is peaceful with other animals
Is eager to please and responsive to training
Then a Labrador Retriever may be right for you.
