Quilts for Foster Hounds

Here's a new and exciting opportunity to help fosters adjust to their forever homes -- FOSTER QUILTS! These quilts are just the right size to fit inside a crate, and will go with the foster hound to their forever home, to help make the transition a little easier. For only $20 per quilt, you get the chance to send a personal note along with the quilt to the foster family and the forever family.

So where are all of those people who want to have an only dog? I’m here! Waiting for you to call!

 

All I keep hearing around here, are that people want to adopt a dog that can be an only pet.  Well, I can be an only dog!   I check my peemail every day on my walkies, and there are never any messages for me.  Who am I?  My name is Duff!  Cute name for a cute hound, dontcha think?  I’m an 8 year old handsome black boy.  I’m very sweet and easy going.  I love meeting new people. 

I really need to be an only dog.  See, I get so excited when I look out the window and see little furry animals that I just want to nip at something!  That something, is most often the dog standing at the window next to me.    I’m sorry, I don’t know what comes over me, but that’s why I should be an only dog.    I’ve never shown any aggression towards a human.  I like going to meet & greets, events, and being petted by everyone.  I’m a very good ambassadog out in public. 

Before you  wonder… yes, I’ve had a full vet checkup.  I’m in good health.  My reaction is behavioral.  I’m not cat safe either…. Again with the furry animals thing…

 When I was training to be a super-fast race dog, I suffered an injury to my toe.  I had to have my toe amputated.  I can put my foot down, but if I’m on a hard surface, I’d rather get around on three legs.  I have a little arthritis settling into my foot, however, I’m good on walks.   Currently I have access to a dog door, but I could hold it during the day if I need to.    I’ve never shown any separation anxiety.  I could be in a home with older kids (10 and older).  I’d prefer a backyard because I’m used to having one.  I like to keep a watch over my domain!

 If you are interested in adopting Duff, please contact your Adoption Counselor.
