Adopting a Labrador Retriever from Labrador Retriever Rescue of North Texas can be one of the most fulfilling decisions of your life, but there are many factors that must be considered first.  Labrador Retrievers are a very popular breed because they are so loyal, friendly, and fun.  But you must consider all of traits of Labrador Retrievers to make sure you are ready:

1. Labrador Retrievers are very active dogs:   Labs require much attention and exercise.  This means that you must dedicate time out of your busy schedule every day to your dog and you must have a fenced-in yard where your Lab can run and play.  If you do not dedicate a large amount of your time to your Lab's needs both you and your dog will be unhappy.  Without the human contact they crave Labs will get bored and will use their abundant energy in a destructive way.

2. Labrador Retrievers, and every dog for that matter, require training:  ideally, Labrador Retrievers should spend most of their time inside the home where they can get the human contact they crave.  If the dog is kept outside most of the day they will seem and feel like they aren't a member of the family.  At Labrador Retriever Rescue of North Texas we want to find homes for our dogs that will make them part of the family.  To train the dog to live indoors we recommend the use of a crate.  A crate is a portable kennel that serves as a substitute "den" to contain the dog.  Read more about crate-training here.

3. Your Dog Needs You: a dog will require professional veterinary care and a regular heartworm preventative.  We require that our adopters administer heartworm preventative to their dogs and obtain regular care from a veterinarian.
