Purebred Chocolate Lab Puppy Needs a Forever Home with Consistency

Meet Durant, a sweet 10-month-old purebred Chocolate Lab in need of adoption. Durant and his brothers came from a breeder who couldn’t keep them any longer, so here we are looking for a forever home for him. Durant is now in foster care via Desert Labrador Retriever Rescue in central Arizona.

A friendly and lovable pup, he adores everyone he meets and likes ear scritches and pets. Always down for a game of fetch, he’s not necessarily the best at bringing the ball back yet — but hey, he’s learning! He’s also still learning how to walk on a leash properly and various commands, but his foster mom says he has made huge strides in these areas already!

Animal Surrenders

Sadly, Durant had spent a lot of time outside before being rescued, so he may not be completely housebroken yet, but he’s said to be a quick learner! Since he’s still a very young boy, he does have a lot of energy to burn and is pretty strong, so he may not be the best fit for a home with young children or elderly pet parents just yet.

Durant is currently part of Desert Labrador Retriever Rescue’s Foster-to-Adopt (FTA) Program. If you are interested in adopting Durant, you would take him into your home as a family member to foster and care for him until he is medically cleared and ready for adoption. In Durant’s case, that would be a few days after his neuter is completed on May 17, 2023.

At that time, interested applicants can officially adopt him. Potential pet parents will be required to complete a foster application and an FTA Conditions & Agreement document. If this sounds good to you and you are interested in taking part in this program and meeting Durant, you can contact DLLR to get the ball rolling.

Adoptable Lab Puppy

Durant is in good physical health and has no special needs. If you are aware of anyone who is looking for a young Lab, please share his story with them. The more people that share or spread the information, the higher his chances are of finding a forever home of his own.

As he’s still in the learning stage of life, the quicker he finds a stable situation with a pet parent willing to work with him consistently, the better his odds are of making a successful transition and staying put.
