Why I need a new home

My story

Tuts is a really sweet guy. He has led a very active life over his 13 years and now is in a bit of a retirement. He has moved from Philadelphia city to NC and has loved all the hiking and trails and water. Unfortunately, last year he injured his back leg and so can’t walk for miles but he’s still able to run after his tennis balls. He has become more of an outside dog due to his age and also to my wife being allergic. I want him to have a family to cuddle with for his last years of life.

I am traveling more for work and just feel guilty that he doesn’t have more time to spend with someone especially since he’s outside.

Looking to rehome him so he can live out his days with someone who can snuggle and spend more time with him. He’s great indoors and is house broken of course.

Why adoption is a great option

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

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