Duce's Story...
*****URGENT: DUCE NEEDS TO FIND A HOME ASAP!!!!!!*******

Duce is approximately 1 year old and weighs 48 lbs. Duce will make a good family dog, He knows the "sit" and "shake" commands and will chase a ball but only brings it back part way. Duce likes to get hugs, is gentle and just waiting for an active leader to show him a ton of love and structure. He needs a home that is experienced with active dominant dogs, obedience classes would be a great start. He is active and would be a great running, biking, hiking, walking partner.

Duce was rescued from living a life locked up in a back yard kennel full time. The woman who rescued him had her own dog, but did so with the intention of finding a good home for this young fellow. After 3 months without success in her own social circle, he was brought to us. During that 3 months, Duce lived a much better life, enjoying playing with another dog, interacting with cats, kids and adults. Duce does like to sleep on the bed, and is very quiet in and outside - not a barker, digger or climber. Duce is lucky to be out of the back yard prison and is ready to move on to a home willing to include him as a family member. Duce will do best in a home where he is the only dog and no cats. He is one easy dog to fall in love with!! If you would like to meet Duce, please fill out a statement of interest form at www.alternativehumanesociety.com (under the ADOPT menu).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Duce, a Bellingham Boxer/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer/Labrador Retriever for sale in Bellingham, or seeking a Boxer/Labrador 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 Boxer/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Boxer/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bellingham paves the way for another one to be saved.
