Hi I'm Duncan a 1 year old lab/great dane mix. I weigh in at just about 65lbs! I'm done growing in height, but have some bulking up to do to fill out this handsome body. I'm told all the time what a soft silky coat I have, and it's true! I'm a very active guy and looking for a family that likes to hike, run or just about anything! I'm game for any adventure!



I was adopted last year but sadly I had to come back to my foster mom because my new family couldn't keep me anymore. It broke my new mommies heart to have to bring me back but it was best for all of us.



So now I'm looking for a new family. Let me tell you a little more about myself. I'm a sweet boy with A LOT of energy!! I'm house and crate trained. I know "sit" "down" and "stay" and walk ok on a leash but can use some training. Not only am I a thief if hearts, I'm also one of socks and dish towels. Just can't help myself! I love people and other dogs, I'm working on being good with cats. When I was a puppy the first time at my foster mom's house I did great with the cats, but now I want to chase them just for fun (though my foster mom has caught me napping with one of the kitties every now and then). I love playing with toys like Kongs, ropes and squeaky toys. I would do best with a very active family since I have energy to spare!! I probably shouldn't go to a first time dog owner or a home with young children (though I love to give them kisses!) since I do sometimes nip and use my front legs, which my foster mom says are very strong, trying to get attention. My foster mom also says I have an inner Tigger just waiting to get out since I sometimes jump up without any warning. I will really benefit from training classes and since I'm food motivated they should be easy!



I would love to have another dog or two to play with. And a large fenced in yard would be great! I am protective of my home and will bark if something looks sketchy like another dog walking by, a bird in the tree, a leafy blowing across the yard. Just know I'll keep you safe!



I'm up to date with all my shots, microchipped, and have been fixed so I'm good to go! My adoption fee is $225. If you think we'd be a good match, you can go to pawsforlifenc.org and fill out an application.



Tail wags and puppy kisses!

About Paws For Life NC An FCHS Program

About Our Rescue Group...

FCHS is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization comprised entirely of volunteers from Franklin County and throughout the state and country. It was formed in 2002 to help solve the problem of unwanted dogs and cats in this region. Its long-term goal is to build an animal shelter where area pets can find safe refuge until they can be adopted to permanent homes. Its immediate goals are to develop a strong foster program to remove adoptable animals from the Franklin County Animal Control facility and to decrease the number of unwanted dogs and cats in Franklin/North Wake counties through spay/neuter public education programs

Our Adoption Process...

1.After you find A Dog or Cat, review the description of the foster you are interested in to make sure that the information we have fits with your particular needs and desires. In most cases, the information on the website is current and gives the information that we have about the particular foster. The picture of the foster does not tell the whole story.

2.Complete the adoption application. Please make sure that you give us as much information about yourself as you can. List all animals currently living with you including other dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and rodents. The application needs to be complete in order to help us determine if the foster you have chosen is a good match for your home. www.fchsnc.org has the applications. This is step one.

3.Once the application is submitted you will usually receive an email letting you know if the foster would be a good match for you and making arrangements for you to meet the dog at one of our adoption events. Sometimes a foster is best shown at the foster home due to his or her personality. We will let you know where the foster home is and arrange a time that works both for you and the foster home.We do require that everyone who will live with the foster to come and meet them. There is a chance we may tell you that the foster you are interested in is not a good match and may suggest another foster.

4.If, after meeting the foster you decide you would like to adopt him or her, a home visit will be scheduled. Someone from the Franklin County Humane Society will call and do the visit. The foster does not come on the home visit. Home visits are required before any foster leaves our program.

5.If more than one person applies and meets the same foster, all things being equal, we go in the order the applications were received.

6.Once the home visit has been completed, you will be asked to complete an adoption agreement. Please read the agreement carefully to make sure that you understand what you will be agreeing to.

7.An adoption fee of $250 for dogs under 6 months $225 for 6 months and older and $95 for cats, Senior Cats $50. This fee helps us to provide the necessary medical care and other needs for the fosters while in foster care. All FCHS fosters are altered, current on shots, micro chipped, and to our knowledge, in good health before they are adopted out. We are all volunteers and as such receive no monetary compensation for our work with the fosters. The adoption fee is used to help defray costs in the rescue and care of the fosters.

8.Congratulations! You are on your way to having you new furry companion. We hope that you and your new companion share a life of love and happiness. We welcome any comments you may wish to give us about your foster at any time.
