  • Labs make great family pets

  • We have a Lab mix, and she is such a sweet girl. I know that some people have issues with larger dogs. They don’t want them in the house because they think the dog will tear it up or they think that a larger dog is harder to control and train. All of these are misnomers.

  • We have a Lab mix, and she is such a sweet girl. I know that some people have issues with larger dogs. They don’t want them in the house because they think the dog will tear it up or they think that a larger dog is harder to control and train. All of these are misnomers.
    Right now our 75-pound Lab mix is lying next to me on the couch. She was fairly easy to house train and has never torn anything up but her toys. We’ve worked with her and she knows her boundaries.  She has also been through obedience class and did very well. It doesn’t matter what size a dog is, it can be trained to be a good house dog and great pet. Three things are needed: Patience, love and perseverance.
    Big and medium size dogs make great pets, and Animals Best Friends has some Lab mix puppies that are looking for good homes. ABF rescued a litter of Lab mix puppies recently, consisting of three boys and three girls. They are all 2 months old, sweet, fuzzy, full of love, and looking for their forever homes.
    Two of these pups are Babs and Whitney. Babs is tan, black, and brown and Whitney is tan. Both of these sweet babies will make great family dogs.
    If you are looking for a great family dog and think that one of these pups might be a good fit, please go to our website at www.animalsbestfriends.org and complete an application. Animals Best Friends does home visits and two week trials to be sure that the animal and family are a good fit.
