Male | 1 years | Retriever, Labrador • Mix


***** Onyx has been with us longer than we would like so he is a member of our Lonely Hearts Club and his adoption fee has been reduced to $300. *****

Name: Onyx

Age: 1.5 year

Weight: ~50 lbs

Personality: Hey hey, I am Onyx! I am a friendly boy who loves to play and snuggle! I love to run around and show off my jumping skills (some people here call me a kangaroo!). I really like all of my new human friends, but have been a little wary of new dogs! It will be important for my new family to be patient and go slow when doing my dog introductions on neutral territory and keeping them brief and positive! I can't wait to find a family who enjoys walks and playing with toys! It would be so cool to go to doggy class too, so I can learn to be the best mannered pup!

Medical History: I arrived from Texas where heartworm and other parasites are more common. I am currently negative for adult heartworm, but it is still strongly recommended to have me re-tested in another 6 months and keep me on a monthly heartworm preventative. It will be important to get me into a vet shortly after adoption to ensure I am on track to being my healthiest and happiest self!

Adoption Fee: $300+tax
