Dug's Story...
This handsome guy is Dug! Dug would love to be your friend. He loves attention, and will lean into you to let you know he is enjoying the pets. He also LOVES to chase tennis balls! Dug came to us as an underweight stray. While we don't know much about his history, he seems to have had a hard life finding food. He deserves a loving, caring home with an active family up to the task of helping Dug gain weight and training him to be gentle while taking treats. Because of his intensity to gobble up all the food he can get, Dug would do best in a home without children under 11 years old. Dug is a bundle of energy and will need to go on runs or long walks daily. He does great with respectful dogs, and could probably live with another dog as he seems to match the energy of his new friend. Dug would do best in a home without cats, as they may be too fun to chase. If you would like to meet this great guy, please complete an adoption application located at the front desk and see if Dug is the perfect addition to your family!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dug, a Bellingham Chesapeake Bay Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chesapeake Bay Retriever for sale in Bellingham, or seeking a Chesapeake Bay Retriever dog from a breeder in Bellingham.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bellingham already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Bellingham breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Chesapeake Bay Retriever breeders who help with Chesapeake Bay Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bellingham paves the way for another one to be saved.
