RetrieverView Churro on Petfinder
Churro is a very sweet, playful 18 month Retriever mix weighing 52 pounds. He is housebroken and crate trained. He hangs out in his crate when his foster mom leaves the house but sleeps quietly in her bedroom at night (bonus...he can go a whole work day in the crate and acts like it's nothing)! He would love a fenced backyard so you can throw his frisbee or tennis ball for him...two of his favorites. He also loves to go for long walks. Sometimes he can get distracted by all the things there are to see and hear on walks but has been very responsive to positive reinforcement training. He already knows several commands like sit, down, wait, and leave it. It helps that Churro is highly treat motivated — such a plus with training! Churro is good with older kids but seems to get nervous around little ones. After a great day of walking, running, playing, and getting lots of treats he's ready to settle in for a nice snuggle with you! Churro has a healthy bark -- good for security but maybe annoying to close neighbors, so probably not a great fit for a condo or apartment.

If you are interested in adopting this dog, you must send an application or email us at email@example.com prior to a Saturday Adoption Event so we know you plan on attending. If we do not receive any communication from you, the dog may be adopted out at our event prior to 12 pm if the perfect home comes along. 🙂 The breed or breed mix listed for each dog is simply a guess. The profile software program requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. However, visual breed identification is unreliable. We encourage you to select your new companion by considering each dog’s individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on a breed label that is only a guess. Dogs are individuals. Please understand, we only adopt our animals out near Chicagoland... we are sorry but we cannot accept any out of state applications. We look forward to speaking with you!
