Meet Duke. Duke is a survivor. When his family moved to the US, he was thrown out on the streets to fend for himself. Rescued in February of this year, Duke was found in a sewer with a gaping, maggot infested hole in his back leg, likely the result of being hit by a car.

This sweet boy is now fully recovered and ready to live out his golden years in the comfort on your lap! Despite the hardships Duke has endured, he is full of love and wants nothing more than your affections. His foster mum says that he will squeal with excitement when you come home and bounces around like a puppy eager for your attention. Oh, and he LOVES belly rubs!

Despite his age, Duke is a very spry boy. He loves to roam the yard and lay in the sun. His ideal home is one with a stay at home mum or dad ready to shower him with the love and attention he deserves. Duke would like a home with a fenced yard if possible for sunning himself on warmer days and ideally, a home with fewer stairs to navigate (or a family willing to carry him up and down the stairs).

Duke gets along well with other dogs, but is not cat tested and so a cat-free home is preferred. He is create trained and mostly house trained but may have some accidents here and there while he learns a new routine. Belly bands and pee pads will be a helpful tool to support with the transition. Duke is not neutered as the vet did not recommend the procedure based on his age.

Duke gets on well with his fosters 8 year old daughter, but would prefer a family with older children that understand the need to be gentle with him.

Anyone who adopts this very special boy will be rewarded with endless amounts of love, loyalty and companionship. If you would like to give Duke the happy ending he so deserves, please apply at fetchandreleash.ca.

About Fetch & Releash

About Our Rescue Group...

We at Fetch & Releash believe every dog deserves a second chance regardless of age, breed, background, health and/or behavioural issues. Through our network of volunteers, foster homes, trainers, and veterinarians, we work hard to find our dogs the loving forever home they deserve.

Fetch & Releash was established in 2016 with a mission of saving homeless dogs. We are 100% volunteer run.

Our dogs come from a variety of different situations and locations such as pounds/shelters, strays, and surrendered pets - both locally and abroad. We provide our dogs with the best care and a chance to find their forever homes by placing them with loving and caring volunteer foster parents. In order to prevent further over-population, all pets are spayed or neutered, age and health permitting.

As a completely volunteer-based organization, we are only able to find our pets their forever homes with the help of our volunteers and donors. Visit fetchandreleash.ca to learn more about volunteering, fostering or donating.

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt one of our dogs, please fill out an application at fetchandreleash.ca. Although we do our best to reply to all inquiries within 48 hours, please remember we are a 100% volunteer based organization, and many of us have full time jobs outside of rescue. We appreciate your patience.

Once your application has been received, a Fetch & Releash volunteer will contact you to set up a time to speak over the phone. The phone call usually takes about 30-45 minutes. Our priority is to ensure the fit is right for both you and the dog, so ask as many questions as you would like! After the phone interview, we will reach out to your personal and veterinarian references (if applicable), and your landlord (if applicable).

If we determine that you are a potential fit for the dog you applied for, you will then be granted a private meet and greet with the dog. If after the meet and greet, you would like to proceed with adoption, a Fetch & Releash volunteer will then contact you to arrange a home visit.

The adoption committee will then review your completed application and make a final decision.
