Featured Dog: Allegra – ADOPTED!


Allegra is a beautiful lab/pit mix a little under a year old. She was underweight when she was brought in, but she’s filled up nicely, and she’s a very nice, happy little girl who loves to be cuddled.


She’s also very active- she loves to play with her toys, and probably would enjoy jogging/running with you, and she gets along very well with other dogs. She would be a great second dog for anyone who needs a perky canine companion.


She also is very food motivated, so it shouldn’t be too hard to train her basic commands. I personally call her a lapdog because that’s all she wants to be (after getting her daily exercise, of course) and rub her all over while she’s on my lap.


If you are looking for a fun companion, please visit Allegra in Kennel 22. For more information, please contact doginfo@@apsofdurham.org or leave a comment below.

    You need to update this. Allegra’s adoption fell through, and she’s still at the shelter looking for a forever home. People interested in her might think she’s not available.

    Can you tell me how much Allegra weighs? Is she housebroken? Has she had any issues with aggression? Where are you located? Do you know anything about her history? Thank you.

      As far as I know, she is housebroken. For the weight, aggression, and history questions, I’m going to refer you to our dog manager who may know more about her. We are located at Durham Animal Shelter on 2117 E. Club Blvd.

      I’m one of the foster homes and have met Allegra. She’s delightful and very playful and friendly with people and other dogs. In our experience transitioning an unknown adult dog from the shelter (we’re on our 13th foster, Joey now) we can’t really tell if they are housebroken or not. Because even if they aren’t technically housebroken they have good control and can easily learn where they are to go. It just means watching them closely the first week and they will be fine.
