Justin is a handsome and good-natured yellow Labrador retriever. He’s a sweet and friendly fellow who doesn’t understand why his owners gave him up. At 1 ½ years, Justin is still a puppy but is full grown at about 60 pounds. He loves to romp and play and seems to be good with other dogs. Justin will make a wonderful companion for anyone with an active lifestyle.

Justin and many other great dogs, cats, puppies and kittens are available for adoption from the Dallas Animal Services Adoption Center, located at 1818 N. Westmoreland at I-30 on the northeast corner. The shelter is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m.; closed Mondays. The cost to adopt is $85 for dogs and $55 for cats and includes spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip and more. All dogs are negative for heartworms, and cats have been tested for FeLV and FIV. For more information, visit www.DallasAnimalServices.org or call 214-671-0249.
