Anyone who has had a Labrador retriever knows what great dogs they are. Whether they are purebred or a mix they are all wonderful family dogs.

I’ve had a Labrador retriever mix for 11 years. I love her so much! She is a wonderful companion, a great guard dog, and loves people. She sleeps in my room every night and lets me know when she hears something strange outside. I feel safe and loved with my lab mix by my side.

Animals Best Friends has several Labrador retriever mixes that are looking for good homes.

Dyson is a handsome fellow with his beautiful brown eyes and shiny black coat. He loves riding in the car and going for walks. He loves his caregivers and will be a devoted companion to the right person.

Hosmer is a handsome boy with a brindle coat and delightful brown eyes. He loves to play fetch and is doing very well in his house training. Hosmer also loves to ride in the car and knows several commands.

Both boys are brothers and two years young. This is a good age because they are past the crazy puppy stage. Dyson and Hosmer are old enough to behave well yet still young enough to play and have fun. These boys need their forever homes.

If you are looking for a family pet won’t you consider one of these two wonderful boys? Please go to and complete an application. ABF does vet checks, home visits, and two-week trials to be sure the animal and family are a good fit.
