Adopt Lex a Black - with White Labrador Retriever / Mixed dog in Newport
Meet this handsome HUNK OF LOVE named Lex! He came into the shelter early September 2021 when his owner could no longer keep him. He does have a large mass on his right side behind his front right leg that the shelter hopes to get checked out. He is 10 years old, current on shots, and full of happiness and love to share. He is super strong and has a lot of pep in his step but he does get tired quickly. He loves to play fetch with a tennis ball for a short while but then he’s done…don’t let him over do though. He’s such a handsome boy full of unconditional love to share. Tried introducing him to a female dog and he didn’t seem to like her being around so probably best being only pet or may just be selective with his canine friends. Stop by the shelter for a visit with Lex and adopt him into your heart and home! If you have another dog and are interested in meeting another potential new furry member please bring him or her to the shelter and meet on neutral ground before adopting. No need to shuffle the animals around any more than necessary. Please know that 1 mosquito bite can create heart worms and they can be fatal if not treated. It is VERY important to keep your pets healthy and protected by keeping them on a once a month heart worm and flea/tick prevention. These animals are counting on you as their owner to provide them with lots a love and the proper health care so PLEASE make sure you are aware and prepared before adopting. Owning a pet is an extra expense and responsibility but is so worth every minute and penny you invest in them. They will add lots of joy and unconditional love if given a fair chance.The shelter is open Mon.-Fri. 10-1, 2-5, Sat. 10-4. Adopt a homeless pet and save a life. If you can not adopt right now come out and volunteer and make a difference in the lives of these animals while they await their FOREVER home. In order to adopt any of our "bully breeds" there is special paper work that will need to be collected and approved prior to the adoption. We love all of our dogs and want to make sure to place our "bully babies" in homes best suited for them.
