Domino is a lively, extremely sensitive, agile, noble, and sporting dog who needs a family willing to embrace him as one of their pack. By nature a sociable, people-pleasing canine, this handsome fella sometimes struggles to be the confident, self-possessed dog he was born to be, masking his insecurities in busy, easily distractible activity. Loyal and affectionate with people he knows, he can be discerning of strangers and will need strong cues from his people to keep him from becoming protective.
Active and on the go outdoors, calm and well-behaved indoors, Domino needs regular mental stimulation and physical exercise to stay fit and happy. Also intelligent with a high learning ability, he loves being challenged and given an opportunity to learn new things, so he’ll benefit from and really enjoy training and socialization classes – this will be an excellent way to bond with him as well as to reinforce good canine manners too. A dog who loves to serve and be close to his people, Domino excels in obedience, he thrives on human companionship, and he’ll want to be included in daily family activities.
Responsible, caring owners worthy of his trust and willing to provide companionship and leadership in a confident, consistent way is what Domino needs to succeed in the role he was made for – faithfully devoted family companion.
Domino 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 Domino 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.
