Basenji Labrador Retriever Mix Dog For Adoption Broomfield Colorado CO – Adopt Shooter Today!
There is a $75 adoption/rehoming fee. All supplies will be included.
Broomfield, CO – Shooter is one of those dogs you never forget. He is so unique. He combines the very best qualities of the Labrador Retriever and Basenji into one medium sized bundle of love and licks.
Shooter is just 6 years old and weighs 50 pounds. He is healthy, up to date on shot s, fixed and microchipped. He is a well behaved boy, and perfectly house broken.
Shooter is being rehomed by his owners. They are broken hearted to have to look for a new home for him, but their circumstances have made it difficult, if not impossible to give Shooter the attention, playtime and exercise he needs and deserves. They want what is best for Shooter. They have recently welcomed some little ones to their family, and Shooter seems to be somewhat nervous around their toddler.
Shooter’s owners are hoping to find him the best home ever. He needs a home with people who have lots of time to give him the attention he deserves. He loves to go for walks, play fetch in the yard, and just hang out with his people, whom he adores. He would be a great choice for a family with kids 10 and up looking for a dog to love.
Shooter is good with other dogs. He is very friendly to people, and loves to go places in the truck. A very social animal indeed!
If you have room in your heart and home for this adorable dog, please get in touch with us. We look forward to introducing you to Shooter and his family.

He is so sweet. He loves to snuggle. He’s house trained to a tee. He has never made a mess in our house since I moved in over three years ago. He’s playful. He loves to be around people. He’ll roll over on command….as long as there is a treat involved.
Shooter’s Current Home Environment
We live in a 1500 square foot house and have two small children (20 months and 2 months). I am a stay at home mom and my husband works outside the home. Our house is loud and crazy because of the kiddos and feels cramped with so many people and a 50 pound dog. We have a substantial back yard, but it isn’t always possible for the dog to be in the yard.
Shooter’s Current Family:
We are a young family with two small children. We like to be active, but have really slowed down since our babies were born.
Shooter’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?
Walks, his bone, chasing bunnies, snuggling, hanging out with his people, truck rides.
Cute Shooter Story:
Shooter loves my husband. So frequently I will come home and find him laying on top of Tom or putting his head on his lap. He’s such a sweet and loyal dog!
Why is Shooter Being Rehomed?
With the addition of our two little people we just aren’t able to give Shooter the attention he needs anymore. He was accustomed to going to the dog park and for a walk every day before we had kids. Now we hardly ever get to walk him. There have also been a couple instances where he got a little snarly with our toddler who is trying to learn not to pull his tail or hit or sit on him. The dog was obviously just telling him to back off, and didn’t bite him or anything, but he just doesn’t have the temperament to be around small children and we have two and plan on having more.
Shooter’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:
We are looking for a home where Shooter will get lots of love an attention. A home where someone has a little more land would be great so he could run around to his heart’s content. Some of the behavioral problems we’ve experienced with Shooter stem from his lack of exercise and positive attention from humans. We are confident that he would be much happier in a place where he receives more positive attention, walks, and play time. We think he would do great in a home with a single person who has lots of time to dedicate to a great dog, or with a couple who likes to take walks and wants a buddy to join them, or with a family that has older kids who would like to play with the dog too (age 10+).
