(added 7/7/12)

MITCHELL is a lovely,big labrador x boy who landed in Monaghan Pound a couple of weeks ago. No one came forward to claim him or rehome him and we stepped in to save him the day before he was due to be put to sleep.

We thought he was purebred when we saw the first pic of him (top left), but the two more recent pix reveal that he is almost certainly a cross.

Mitchell is a youngster, slightly bigger than an average lab, and a calm, gentle, well-mannered soul. He looks a kind, smiley boy, doesn’t he?

Mitchell will be arriving with us here in the UK in a week or two and will be fostered in Nottingham where we will assess his strengths/weaknesses, needs etc.

Mitchell will be fully-vaccinated, wormed, flea-treated and neutered if appropriate.

The adoption fee for Mitchell will be £150 plus VAT (£180 in total). If you would like to express preliminary interest in this lad, please email jem@blackretrieverx.co.uk .
