Doodle's Info...

I am already neutered and up to date with shots.

Doodle's Story...
I'm Doodle, also know as "the Dood." I'll greet you with a head tilt and a wagging tail, but only after I've gotten to know you. At 9 years old, I've been waiting for my perfect partner for a long time now. It would be best if I was in a home with no children; my age just can't keep up! I have been known to get along with easy-going dogs if I'm properly introduced. I even made an indoor kitty friend recently! But let's be honest, I'm really not an overly active guy. I do enjoy peaceful walks with a confident handler who will let me know everything is ok, but even a fenced in yard might be all I need. Maybe I'll even show you how smart I am with some of my tricks! Then, when we get home, I'll snuggle up on the couch and nudge your hand to pet me until I fall asleep. I'd still like to you stay nearby, though, to reassure me that everything is just fine (though lately, I have been working on crate-training). I have been slowly working on staying relaxed when I'm left alone, but will need to have consistent rules so I can be on my best behavior with you always.

The shelter life is really no life for an older guy like me. The concrete kennel runs are so hard and cold; I'd really like a cozy couch to curl up on. Honestly, I'm just quite tired of being alone. Won't you come rescue me so that we can ride off in the sunset together?

Staff quote about Doodle:
• According to DHA Animal Caretaker, Ashley, “Doodle loves his people and he is always happy to see staff – tailwagging, but he seems miserable being here for so long."

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Doodle, a Wilmington Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever for sale in Wilmington, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Wilmington.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Wilmington 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 Wilmington 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 Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Wilmington paves the way for another one to be saved.
