Adopt Me: Mortimer is a bit of an old soul (adopted)

Mortimer is the type of pooch who will chill with Netflix and the fam jam any time

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)

Pleased to meet you! I’m Mortimer, a Shepherd/Collie medley currently awaiting my forever home at the Timmins & District Humane Society.

I’m a handsome, unique, and loyal boy, and I enjoy getting attention from humans. While I’m only four years old, I’m a bit of an old soul, and would likely do well in a fairly calm home environment with regular walks outside.

I also do well with other canine companions. I’ve never been around children before, but I’d likely do just fine in a home with older kids – let’s schedule a meet and greet soon. I’m the type of pooch who will chill with Netflix and the fam jam any time. Just say the words!
