Regal and dignified, but maybe not so much graceful, Camu is a sensitive, funny, warm-hearted, loyal, and affectionate young boy who genuinely loves people and close contact with them. Extremely fawning with those he knows, attentive and well-mannered on a leash, a dog who takes direction readily and is always looking to follow the lead of his handler, Camu has a shy side and can be discerning with strangers, but he warms-up quickly on his own when given a respectful minute, recognizing strangers as friends he just hasn’t met yet.
Active and lively, sweetly animated, intelligent, puppy-like playful, interested and wanting to be involved, Camu needs regular mental stimulation and physical activity to stay happy and healthy. His exercise needs aren’t really all that extreme though and can be met with leashed walks, interactive outdoor play and free-runs in an enclosed-secure area, and adventurous outings alongside his much-adored family members.
Obedient and eager to please when he knows what is expected of him, this happy-to-be-around, wholeheartedly sincere, frequently goofy, and always engaging canine thrives on human companionship and praise for accomplishment. Not only will he benefit from and enjoy training and socialization classes, but this will also be an excellent way to bond with him as well as to build his confidence and reinforce good canine manners.
Longing to be a cherished, always included family member in his own forever home, Camu is looking for responsible, caring owners willing to provide him with the exercise, leadership, and companionship he needs and craves.
Camu is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a moderately-active lifestyle. As with all dogs, a meet-n-greet with any housemate dogs will be necessary to determine compatibility prior to adoption. Direct interaction with cats is unknown and cannot be fully assessed at the shelter at this time.
Come meet Camu at Monroe County Animal Control located at 911 S. Raisinville Rd, Monroe, MI (just south of the fairgrounds). Kennel hours are Tuesday - Friday, 11:00 am - 3:30 pm; Saturday, 11:00 am - 2:30 pm; closed Sunday, Monday, and National Holidays.
For more information you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the shelter during business hours at 734-240-3125.
Monroe SPCA also offers microchips for dogs and cats adopted from Monroe County Animal Control for a fee of $15.00 at the time of adoption. Microchips are implanted between the dog’s shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. Microchips are registered to Monroe SPCA with adopters adding “new owner” information after adoption. If the dog is ever lost and slips his or her collar and tags, the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact when the dog is scanned for a microchip.
Even if you cannot adopt at this time, please consider making a donation to Monroe SPCA so we may continue saving, protecting, and improving the lives of homeless animals in Monroe County.
In addition to providing emergency medical treatment to animals who need it, Monroe SPCA, now, provides every dog at Monroe County Animal Control with basic preventative health care which includes flea preventative, deworming(s), DHPP vaccine and booster, and Heartworm Testing. If a dog tests positive for Heartworm, Monroe SPCA also provides that dog with Heartworm treatment. Dogs adoptable through Monroe County Animal Control have no adoption fee at this time (adopter’s pay a $10.00 application fee and $25.00 sterilization deposit payable to the County of Monroe); this Monroe SPCA Operational Support Program at Monroe County Animal Control is funded solely by monetary donations. We do not receive government funding, and we are not affiliated with or funded by Monroe County Animal Control, the HSUS, the ASPCA, or any other humane organization. Monroe SPCA is a 501c.3 non-profit organization, and we rely on the financial support and generosity of individuals and businesses in our community to conduct our daily operations and help animals. All donations to Monroe SPCA are tax-deductible.
