Adopt Me: Dante is ready to be your loyal best friend (adopted)

He gets along well with other dogs and with children

TimminsToday, in partnership with the Timmins and District Humane Society and the Northern Ontario Animal Welfare Society, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


(Humane Society)

Hi there, Dante here! I’m a delightful and super handsome Labrador Retriever/Rottweiler mix. I do really well with other dogs, and even with kids.

I’m fully trained, have a loyal and fairly calm demeanor, and I would be a wonderful fit for a family who is moderately active, but who also likes quiet nights at home on the couch.

I guarantee to bring warmth, happiness, and playfulness to your life. Interested in meeting an eight-year-old boy like me? Stop by to say hi! 

Words to describe Dante: Calm, playful, loyal, appreciative.

See you soon, Dante
