Full Advert Details

George - Labrador mixed with a Mastin we think of 4 1/2 months

This lovely boy was found as a stray in Spain as a baby- one of the lucky ones he found himself a lovely foster home, where he lives with 5 other dogs with a retired couple. Meeting him and his foster mummy you can tell how loved he is- she said he gets on wonderfully with her dogs- he is more or less house trained, good on the lead, fine being left- he sleeps in a bed not a crate - nothing really bad to say about this lovely boy- he is going to be on the large size looking athis paws, I should imagine he is mixed with a Spanish Mastin -they are a lovely breed -very similar temperaments to the Newfoundlands and other mountain dogs- he is going to benefit, like all young dogs, from dog training ,and because of his size we want him to go to an experienced home as it's a big responsibility having a large size dog, and their future is in your hands bringing them up right - he has had the best of starts, being in a home ,and his foster home loves him ,and they would love to keep him but feel they have enough dogs -and they want to go on fostering and helping other dogs like George find new lives. They feel George would benefit from being with another dog, or dogs ,as he loves them so much.

This is George when a bit younger with his foster fur family

George cannot be homed to full time workers, or people with children under 10 years old, because of his size- we want him to go to an experienced home who have had large breed dogs before, and understand the responsibility they bring, and who will put the work in now to bring them up to be well balanced and well trained adults - George has had the best of starts ,unlike some ,and we want someone to carry this on.

George is fully vaccinated- too young to be neutered you will be expected to do this as part of the adoption agreement once he is old enough. If you feel you could be the right home for George please email for our questionnaire at [email removed] in the first instance.

Important Notice from Pets4Homes - Before contacting the seller, you MUST read our pet advice below. NEVER send money for a deposit or pay for a pet online without visiting the advertisers home first to confirm they are genuine.

Puppy/Dog Adoption Checklist

Before contacting or visiting the advertiser for this Labrador Retriever. Please make sure you have printed and read this checklist fully. Do NOT buy a dog or puppy from the advertiser unless you are happy that they follow all the advice on the list. If you have any concerns, report them to us.


  • Do your research first
    Getting a new dog or puppy is a massive commitment, so make sure you have researched the breed fully and have the time and commitment necessary to care for the dog. You can read our detailed Information guide about dogs for potential new dog owners. Also read our Labrador Retriever Dog breed information profile.
  • Confirm that the advertiser is genuine
    You should verify this by arranging to visit the dog or puppy at the advertisers home, if they make excuses or try to ask for money or a deposit to be paid online without visiting the dog at their home, or if the advertiser attempts to deliver the puppies or meet you at any other location than their own home, then please do not agree to this. NEVER pay for a dog or send money as a deposit without visiting and seeing the dog at its home beforehand. Please read our article on avoiding potential scams.

    Pets4Homes do not verify that all advertisers are genuine, so you must make sure you visit the advertiser at their home to confirm yourself. If you are unsure that the advertiser is genuine, please report them to us.
  • Can the puppies be viewed with their Mother?
    The advertiser should ALWAYS let you see the puppies with their mother, and in certain circumstances should let you see the puppies father. Not being able to see the puppies mother is a sign the puppies have not been bred by the advertiser and possibly imported. If the advertiser makes excuses why you cannot see the puppies mum, please walk away and report them to us. Pets4Homes do not allow the third party sale of puppies. All litters of puppies advertised, MUST have been bred by the advertiser.
  • Is the Puppy over 8 Weeks of age?
    Puppies must be at least 8 weeks old and fully weaned before they can leave their mothers. Most responsible sellers will keep their puppies longer than this before they let them go to new homes. Read further information on the minimum age puppies should be before leaving their mothers
  • Is the puppy/dog Microchipped ?
    From April 6th 2016 it will be required by law that all dog over 8 weeks of age are microchipped and that the keepers details registered against them are kept up to date. The breeder is responsible for microchipping the puppies and must have their details registered on the microchip database first. Please check to make sure you receive the microchip documentation with chip number BEFORE taking the dog or puppy home and then arrange to transfer the microchip in to your own name. (More Info)
  • Check the Health of the Puppy or Dog
    It can be difficult for the average person to check if a dog or puppy is healthy or not, so if you decide to adopt or buy the puppy, make sure that the seller agrees that you can return them within 48 hours for a full refund after taking the dog or puppy to a Vet of your choice for a health check. The seller should be willing to let you do this. If the puppy has already been health checked by their own vet, make sure you get evidence for this in the form of vet records and phone their vet to confirm this.
  • Is the puppy or dog up to date with their vaccinations?
    Puppies should receive 2 vaccinations, the first at around 8 to 10 weeks of age and the second, two weeks later at around 10 to 12 weeks of age. Older Dogs require booster vaccinations occasionally as recommended by their Vet. Ask the breeder which vaccinations they have had and if not, why not. Puppies should have at least had their first set of vaccinations before they leave. If the seller has not started the puppies vaccinations, it will be your responsibility to make sure you arrange both vaccinations 7 days before letting your puppy go outside. (More Info)
  • Have the puppies been treated for worms and fleas?
    Puppies should really be wormed at around 2 weeks of age, and again at around 5 weeks of age, and finally just before they leave the seller/breeder at 8 to 12 weeks of age.
  • Ask questions about puppies mother
    Ask how many litters the mother has had and how old she is, she should be at least 1.5 years old. Ask about her temperament. The advertiser should want to tell you all about the puppies mother.
  • Is the dog/puppy registered with the kennel club?
    If they are, then check to make sure you are given the correct kennel club documents BEFORE you decide to take the dog home. It may also be worth phoning the kennel club to check the information provided is correct.
  • Have the puppies been socialised ?
    Make sure that puppies have been socialised from a very early age and are raised in a home environment, have interacted with their litter mates and are used to people, children and general household life. Puppies that haven't been raised in a home environment may develop behavioural issues, have temperamental problems, be difficult to housetrain and find adjusting to family life hard.
