Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). "BIG" is a Beautiful, Gentle, Sweet, Smart, Energetic choc lab/pit mix. 2 yr. neutered male. up on shots, microchipped. housebroken. He only chews what you give him to chew. GREAT COMPANION. Very GOOD boy. My son found in Birmingham 2 years ago, very skinny and scared, looked as if he had been dumped. My son hid him in his dorm at UAB until he got caught. "Big" ended up at my house. I took him to Governor's Choice where we got him neutered. He has never caused one problem. He is smart and gentle. He loves the water. He is very strong and very energetic. He needs a fenced in back yard. He is loving and housebroken. I will donate is his "Igloo" dog house and crate. He loves a raw egg on his breakfast to keep his beautiful coat shiny. He loves a back-rub and just to watch tv with the family.

More About Labrador Retriever Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Bulldog (short coat). This is BROWNIE. Brownie and Marshmallow are young dogs and were found in the Harvest, AL area in August. They were very scared, starving, with lots of fleas and no collar marks. They were taken in the first couple of days to the vet and scanned for chips – no chips. My son has been taking care of them for about two months now. They are very sweet and happy adjusted dogs. Both dogs received their shots and were spayed recently and doing great.
