Are you looking for an active partner who will go fun places with you? That’s Dottie! She’s a super sweet, active and curious 3-year-old, 53-pound girl who loves to explore. She enjoys learning new things and would benefit from plenty of exercise. She loves to chase a ball, run around and eat yummy treats. She avoids other dogs for the most part because she’s primarily into her people. She does best with kids who are 8 years old or older. This is her third round at the shelter, at no fault of her own. Her first adopters had to move and couldn’t take her with them, and her second adopter had a job change that took up all her time, sadly. She’s been at the shelter much of the time since January. She’s gotten to know the volunteers extremely well, but would rather spend time getting to know her new family.
Through August, adoption fees for all adoptable dogs and cats are $50 during Clear the Shelters. To set up a virtual visit or to adopt, send adoption forms to [email protected]. To view Dottie’s webpage, visit apsofdurham.org/dogs/dottie. Same-day adoptions are now available in the shelter!
Adoption fees for dogs and puppies typically range from $125-$175. This includes a basic medical exam and behavioral assessment, spay or neuter surgery, microchip implantation, rabies and other vaccinations, intestinal parasite check (with treatment, control and prevention), a heartworm test and deworming.
