DOUG's Info...

DOUG's Story...
[ADOPTION PENDING] This gorgeous fellow is Doug, a smoothcoat (shorthaired) Saint who is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, housetrained, and HW-negative.

He is basically a healthy boy with the exception of having a mild allergy which causes his skin to occasionally be a bit dry and flaky; but that can easily be addressed via a high-quality grain-free kibble and occasional soothing emollient shampoos.

Doug is a gentle, submissive, playful guy who just turned three years old earlier this month. He knows a few commands, adores riding shotgun in the car and playing with humans. He has a "soft mouth" which means that he takes treats gently.

He is an owner-surrender. He plays nicely with other dogs and is friendly with cats, but would be most comfotable in a family with kids over age 10 or no kids. (He seems to prefer the company of adults.)

Doug is just now learning how to play with a few toys. Can you imagine a dog who doesn't know what to do with a toy? How sad.

We'd prefer a fenced yard for Doug but will give consideration to the applicant who is committed to being outdoors with him and not letting him be outside unsupervised.

If you're looking for a friendly, happy Saint who'll run around the yard and play in the snow with you non-stop, Doug's your guy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

DOUG, a Sudbury St. Bernard dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a St. Bernard for sale in Sudbury, or seeking a St. Bernard dog from a breeder in Sudbury.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Sudbury 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 Sudbury 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 St. Bernard breeders who help with St. Bernard rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sudbury paves the way for another one to be saved.
