Special Needs Dog Adoptions
Meet Trip, Lab Border Collie mix Dog For Adoption in Spokane Washington
Trip is a Male Labrador Retriever Border Collie mix dog for adoption to a very loving home in or near Spokane, Washington. This very special Lab mix is 3 years old years old and weighs 70 pounds.
Trip is in good health. He is neutered and up to date on shots. He is special needs, having had to have one of his legs amputated when he was in a shelter. This doesn’t really hold him back, but he does need a home where the floor surfaces are mostly carpeted.
Trip is very sweet, playful and devoted. He loves to play fetch and tug-o-war (having 3 legs doesn’t hold him back a bit!). He is also a great cuddler and good with children. He is not a fan of noise and commotion, however, and will do best in a quiet home with a solid routine.
Trip is being placed for adoption by owner for the following reason:
Our home is too much for Trip. He needs somewhere that’s focused on him and his needs. He also needs a carpeted home to build his confidence on his remaining legs and someone to walk him every night.
My husband also doesn’t allow him on the furniture and I know he’d love to be able to snuggle on the couch with someone. We’re just too loud and hectic and it makes his anxiety flare up. I’d love to be the right home for him but we aren’t.
There is a $75 adoption/rehoming fee. Supplies and veterinary records will be included.

Trip’s Current Home Environment
It’s hectic. My husband and I work full time and I have two kids under 5. We do our best to give him exercise but we don’t always succeed. He also has a difficult time getting around on anything but carpet due to his missing leg so anywhere with tile has a rug on it in our house.
Trip’s Current Family:
I have two kids under five and my husband and I have been together for 6 years. We are active and noisy most days which is stressful for Trip.
Trip’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?
Any ball that he can play fetch with. Anything someone will play tug-of-war with.
Cute Trip Story:
Anytime I leave the room and the baby is on the play mat, Trip will walk over and lay down next to her until I come back in the room. Even if I’m still within eyesight.
Why is Trip Being Rehomed?
Our home is too much for Trip. He needs somewhere that’s focused on him and his needs. He also needs a carpeted home to build his confidence on his remaining legs and someone to walk him every night. My husband also doesn’t allow him on the furniture and I know he’d love to be able to snuggle on the couch with someone. We’re just too loud and hectic and it makes his anxiety flare up. I’d love to be the right home for him but we aren’t.
Trip’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:
Someone retired or who works from home. Carpeted house without stairs since he can go up them but not down them. Someone with time to spend with him and exercise him daily. Someone who understands his anxiety gets the better of him many days but that his still a good, sweet boy that just wants to be loved.
He has to go to the right home. Please be aware of his needs.
