Featured Dog: Walter

WalterMeet Walter, a handsome lab/shepherd mix who’s about 4-5 years old.

WalterHe’s quite a gentleman- one of the easiest dogs I’ve walked, and he’s very attentive and polite.

WalterHe does have a bit of a PR problem, though. He always looks so worried, which, truthfully, he is, a bit, and his eyes look very sad.

Walter
Despite his reservations, Walter is finding all sorts of joy and fun.

Walter
For example, he loves to play fetch.

Walter
And he has a cute little underbite when he “smiles.”

WalterMostly, I think he really is just a goofy dog waiting to come out of his shell. He would be a great dog for folks looking for an older, calmer and more mature-yet-silly canine companion.

Featured Dog: June – ADOPTED!

JuneThis is the darling June, a 8-9 years old Boxer.  Don’t let her age fool you- she’s still very energetic and healthy.

JuneActually, she is a bit bossy and assumes that she knows better than you do when you take her for a walk :) I work with a lot of puppies, and I’ve had to teach them things over and over, and once in a while, it is nice to be able to “work” with an older dog who is already a pro. I found June to be a very pleasant companion, and all she really needs is lots of love, a comfy bed, and a good walk.

June

Won’t you give this sweet girl a nice retirement home that she deserves?

If you are interested in June, please come visit her in Kennel 32. For more information on June, please contact doginfo@apsofdurham.org or leave a comment below.

Featured Dog: Elijah – ADOPTED!

ElijahMeet Elijah, a friendly 8 months old lab/pit mix.

ElijahHis favorite activity is playing – he loves balls and will chase them for hours! (minutes, actually, but who’s counting…)

ElijahHe also loves food treats and would be a top student in obedience school.

ElijahHis best quality, in my opinion, is his mellow personality.

ElijahHe gets along very well with other dogs, loves people, loves toys, and if you are looking for a dog to help you relax and appreciate the simpler things in life, Elijah would definitely be a good choice.

Elijah

Elijah also seems to be a bit more mature than most puppies I’ve met- he can be very content chewing a toy quietly while you do something else.

ElijahAnd when you’re ready to play, he is, too.

Elijah

Also, please see these short videos of Elijah playing:

Moxie

Really, I can’t emphasize how much of a sweetheart this girl is.

Moxie

She might look like she’s frowning…

Moxie

but her smiles will light up your whole day.
