My story

I’m Duke and I enjoy going on walks and cuddling on the couch. I love to run around in my fenced in back yard. I am a runner if not on a leash though. My ideal home would be one where my humans are home a good amount due to my separation anxiety and also one with a backyard fenced in where I can run around all day. Just like other dogs, I like to get my hands on things I’m not supposed to sometimes so I need to have an eye on me. I love playing with other dogs and am great with kids. My only dislike is being alone.

Duke is a 2 1/2 year old, 70 lb., handsome, mixed breed sweetheart who came to us as an owner surrender. Unfortunately, his human parents split up and he’s found himself in need of a home through no fault of his own. Duke is neutered and up to date on shots.

Why adoption is a great option

Duke, a Hockessin Mixed Breed (Large) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Mixed Breed (Large) for sale in Hockessin, or seeking a Mixed Breed (Large) dog from a breeder in Hockessin.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hockessin 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 Hockessin 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 Mixed Breed (Large) breeders who help with Mixed Breed (Large) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hockessin paves the way for another one to be saved.
