Meet Duncan, an exuberant 3-month-old retriever mix pup in need of a forever or permanent foster home. Here is what his temporary foster family has to say about him:
Hi, my name is Duncan and I am a handsome fella don’t you think? I am a big-footed goofy kind of dude because I am a large puppy!
I am currently living in a temporary foster home and I would really like to find a permanent foster or, better yet, my very own family. I live with other dogs and kids right now and sometimes I get these things call play dates with other dogs too. So I fit in just about anywhere (except your lap when I am fully grown).
I love my bath time, it’s just like swimming I LOVE to play ball. Overall, I am a fun-loving little boy and I’m ready for join my forever family learning that stuff my temp foster is teaching me called puppy manners.
Just remember, I am an active pup in my early years so I will need someone home during the day. Bummed to say but if you work a 9-to-5 job outside the home, I am not the best fit, and if you want to adopt me you will need to provide proof of a multi-times a day dog walker to come visit me while you are gone. This is due to a puppy’s need for attention and frequent bathroom breaks. This applies to dogs under 5 months of age.
Like most shelter dogs, Duncan may need a refresher on housetraining. Duncan has been spayed/neutered.
Duncan’s adoption fee is $380. He will have routine vetting: DAPPv, Bordetella, Rabies, Worming, Microchip and additional vetting as necessary. To inquire, fill out an adoption application at New Love Animal Rescue.
