Facts about Duke

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: #607

I was adopted as a baby puppy in 2008. I don’t know what happened to my once wonderful family, but they discarded me and moved to Atlanta without telling Forte. Luckily a saint found me on the street and contacted Forte. Thank goodness for the microchip because I was not wearing a tag. When Forte reached out to my original family, the guy who adopted me shouted profanity for no reason, so they could not get any info about what happened to me or when he abandoned me. But that’s ok since I’m in a loving foster home, and I know that there is someone out there who would like to adopt me and love me for the rest of my life. I’m super mellow, loving, playful and best of all, I have a great sense of humor! Please come and meet me!

Our Adoption Process...

All potential adopters are carefully screened through our adoption process:

- If you're interested in an animal, we'll ask that you fill out a questionnaire, which we will review to ensure you and the dog you are interested in adopting are a good match.

- You will be asked to submit to a "home safety check" to determine the level of safety and adequacy of the area for the dog.

- An adoption fee is required and you must sign the adoption agreement, which ensures that if, for any reason, you are unable to keep the dog, he/she to be returned to Forte Animal Rescue only.

- Finally, we personally deliver your new family member to your home.

- Any additional donation would be greatly appreciated, and this portion will be tax-deductible. The donation goes to pay for all of the other animals in our care, many of which come to us with injuries or medical conditions that require treatment. Forte Animal Rescue survives solely on donations and it is for this reason that the adoption fee is nonnegotiable.

- Forte Animal Rescue reserves the right to cancel the adoption process at any time if the home situation or adoptive family has been misrepresented, if certain information was withheld, or if the dog is determined to be a better match with another family.
