Drake Had His Second Birthday in a Shelter!


Hi Y’all,

Drake, a retriever mix, was turned in by his owners when they moved.  That was  way back in November 2011.  Isn’t this fellow a beauty?


While Drake is good with most other dogs, he is still young and has that puppy playfulness.  Thus a home without cats or young children is needed.  In his exuberance he could knock over a young child.  

Drake makes a moaning, groaning sound when playing with other dogs, but he is not growling or aggressive.

He is a young energetic dog who needs lots of regular exercise to release his pent up energy.  He also walks nicely on a leash and I’m sure would love to go hiking or just walking with you. 

 Drake LOVES life and needs someone who will offer him a responsible FOREVER home.

Drake is neutered, house broken, current on his shots.  His coat is short and black. 

Drake’s wish for a belated birthday present is for a forever home that will fulfill his need for love, affection and exercise.  He’d like a fenced yard to play in when not inside with his people or out exercising with them.  He wants plenty of food and fresh water and good health care, like regular heartworm and flea treatment as well as vet visits for health checks and shots.  Some toys and a comfy bed and to live in the house with his people, not stuck outside someplace.  Drake wants never to have to go to a shelter again, but to always be with the family who adopts and loves him. 

Are you that family?
