Sonny the Retriever Mix   

In shelter Dog

Oak Creek, WI, 53154
Pet name:
Sonny the Retriever Mix
Labrador Retriever
Yellow / Tan / Blond / Fawn
Coat length:

Sonny is a handsome male retriever mix. He is about 7 months old and is about 30 lbs.  We do not expect him to get more than 40-45 pounds when full grown.   His foster in Texas says he is the sweetest boy, and gets along fine with her cats.  He has a thicker coat, which will be great for our Wisconsin winters!

He gets along good with other dogs.  He walks well on a leash, and is crate and potty trained.  He is still a puppy, so his new family should be prepared to do some additional training in those areas. 

He is neutered, up to date on shots, tested heartworm negative and microchipped, he comes with his medical records and interstate health certificate from a veterinary examination prior to leaving Texas, which certifies him to be in good condition.

He will be arriving at the PetSmart in Oak Creek, WI on Saturday September 24th and will be available to meet between 11 am and 4 pm by the first family to have placed an exclusive hold deposit as set out below.

His adoption fee is $500. He is available for an exclusive hold with a deposit of $250, which we give on a first come, first served, basis. The balance of the adoption fee is due upon pick up. Should you find that he is not a good fit for your family, we are happy to take him back in and refund the entire $500 upon his return to a foster who we will arrange for, so long as you notify us within 30 days of his adoption date.

Sonnys adoption fee will enable us to finance our program of readying additional dogs, puppies and kittens which we prepare, transport and adopt out in the northern United States. Our goal is to get as many homeless animals out of south Texas, where we have a severe pet overpopulation crisis.

If you are serious about making an exclusive hold deposit, please contact us at   We take payments through Zelle, Venmo, PayPal, CashApp, or we can take card numbers over the phone and process them through Square. All of these methods provide a receipt. Holds are handled on a first-come, first-served basis with respect to the first person to place an exclusive hold deposit as instructed by the rescue. Once you have made the deposit, it is refundable so long as you show up to meet the dog on the agreed date. Prior notification of an intended no-show/non-delivery does not constitute showing up.
