Arf! Arf, everyone! I'm Mia, a sweet, gentle, adorable Black Labrador mix gal with a white locket who was born July 2023. At four months old I weighed 20 pounds but could weigh over 50 pounds when I'm full grown. Just call me easy-to-please because I get along with everybody -- humans of all ages, including kids -- as well as other dogs. Remember that the sweet-faced, lovable Labrador Retriever is America's most popular dog breed. We're friendly, outgoing, and high-spirited companions who have more than enough affection to go around for a family looking for a large dog. Like most labs, expect me to be a very loving, companionable housemate who bonds with the whole family as well as who socializes well with neighbor dogs and hoomans alike. But don't mistake my easygoing personality for low energy: labs are enthusiastic athletes who require regular exercise to keep us physically and mentally fit. I'd do best in a home with an active family who will take me out for long walks, jogging, or marathon games of fetch at the dog park. You'll get bonus points if you have a pool! My litter and I were found in the Rio Grande Valley by a Good Samaritan who had the presence of mind to contact Miss Donna to find me a fantastic home in Houston. I'm so relieved that I kissed the hardscrabble life of fending for myself good-bye! Arrange to meet me today so I can cover your face with mushy puppy kisses. I have all the potential to add up to the ideal family dog. My heart has so much love to give -- all I need is YOU! Mia has been spayed, vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped, crate-trained, and is on heartworm preventative. Her adoption fee is $300 for puppies 9 months and younger. An application must be filled out prior to adoption.
