  How do you apply to adopt a DunRoamin' dog?  Click here to find out!

"Ariel" came to DunRoamin' from the NBSPCA on September 26, 2019.  She is a terrier who was very shy and scared upon her arrival - but who wouldn't be?  She weighed about six pounds and had mild tartar on her teeth.  She was dirty and matted - both of which were quickly rectified for her comfort.  She also had dirty ears which were also cleaned.  She was born about September 18, 2017. 

Ariel is a dog we would consider to be semi-feral at this point.  She has not acclimated to life with humans as well as the other puppy mill dogs, and is fearful of most humans.  She will need a very patient and quiet home that is willing to gain her trust and understand that she may never act like a typical domesticated pet.  She also has a heart murmur that will need to be monitored closely by her future vet.

Ariel will resort to biting if she feels threatened by people reaching towards her unexpectedly, like to attach a leash to her collar.  This is why we are requiring that any potential adoptive home has a fenced yard so she can go in and out without the stress of having the leash put on and off multiple times a day.  She has come leaps and bounds in terms of what she will tolerate and her trust level with humans, but she will certainly be a commitment to anyone interested in adopting her.  Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of positive points in her description, but we strive to provide a clear picture early on of the care our dogs will need to those who express interest.

I'm interested.  How do I meet this dog?

"Wahlberg" came to DunRoamin' Stray and Rescue on October 5, 2020 after his owner had passed away and he was no longer able to be cared for.  He is a bright, handsome, sweet, senior black Labrador. The transition to a foster home was definitely a big change for this 14-year -old boy, but his happy demeanor helped him settle in no time.

Wahlberg gets along great with other dogs but sometimes trips over smaller animals when he is excited and doesn't notice them.  He is very respectful of cats, especially if he thinks they might deliver a swat!  Wahlberg is definitely a people dog, preferring the company of humans over anything else.  His hiking days are behind him, but he is always up for a cuddle on the couch or to lend a supportive ear.

Wahlberg is on medication for arthritis but he gets around fine.  He would do best in a home with older children.  He is kennel trained but does well loose in the house for short periods of time.  He is an amazing boy who would be a great addition to a loving home.
