Duke is a short stocky handsome boy. We have estimated him at 4 years old and tipping the scales at 50 pounds. He has been in foster care for a little over a year. We felt he needed a stable home to help him adjust to the life he so deserves prior to putting him up for adoption. It is now his turn to find his forever family. Duke is super lovable, house broken, crate trained, gets along with most dogs but would need to be tested with your dog or dogs during our meet and greet to make sure they hit it off. Not real excited about cats so if you have one it probably wouldn't be a great idea. Now here are the things needing improvement .....Duke does still pull on the leash and will jump on people to say hello. He also will howl if he happens to hear a siren screeching within ear shot. He is fully vetted and this includes neutered, DHLPP vaccine, rabies, micro chipped and parasite free. The vet checked him for heart worms and unfortunately over a year ago they found his test came up positive. The doctor felt a slow kill heart worm treatment would be the best for Duke. He will be re tested prior to adoption to see where we stand. Oh and one more thing, his foster has allowed him on the recliner chair. He is a very smart boy so it won't take long for you to change these bad habits into no habits at all. If Duke seems to be someone you would like to meet give Karen a call at 813-833-1821 lets set up a meet and greet and see if you have found your forever boy.
About Sumter County Florida Animal Advocates, Inc.
Our primary purpose is to network the animals at Sumter County Animal Services to save as many lives as we can. We are a 501c3 Rescue who takes the animals that no one else wanted. Our animals are in foster care to learn what living in a home is all about. They are completely vetted, house and crate trained, as well as micro-chipped spayed/neutered and up to date on shots. . We also accept the animal back at any time to ensure they are never returned to a shelter again. Our animals deserve the very best that life has to offer them.
Come Meet Our Pets...
With our animals being in foster care we make arrangements for a meet and greet outside of the foster home. We like you to meet our dog at a public dog park for the safety of everyone.
Our Adoption Process...
We have our animals for adoption which require an application through us, vet reference and a home check.
We also network the animals at Sumter County Animal Services. All adoptions at SCAS are handled by the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County, Inc. All applications and fees for the animals at SCAS are handled through them.
