Adopt Me: Dutchess had a rough start in life (adopted)

She needs a strong person in her life, someone who will commit to work on her training

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.

Dutchess is a young lab mix, about 10 months old. She came into NOAWS care quite under weight and very ill.

Her foster mom has seen her through the tough times, but she has since fully recovered and was well enough to be spayed last week, so she is now ready to find her forever family!

Dutchess needs a strong person in her life, someone who will commit to work on her training and give her the exercise she needs to build up her muscles.

They must be accepting of her quirks and work with her to become the wonderful dog her foster mom says she is growing into. Dutchess is crate trained, house trained, and working on leash skills. 

If you are interested in adoption, please apply at or email for more info.
