Adoptable Dog of the Week - Dean

Energetic, lively, and always ready for an adventure, this pooch could be a perfect companion for active owners! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Dean, a year and a half old Labrador Retriever and unknown Hound mix from Newark, Delaware. He is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on his vaccinations. Dean gets along with other dogs, especially if they share his personality and energy, but hasn’t been tested around cats. Due to his energy levels, it’s best if he goes to a home without small kids in the family. 

Dean’s Tale

Sweet, fun to be around, and outgoing, Dean is a perfect match for families that have an active lifestyle. He has plenty of energy and will need daily walks and active playtime to burn it off – which makes him perfect for people that are looking for a companion for their adventures. Or, if you need a bit of a nudge toward a healthier lifestyle and want to get moving, Dean can be a perfect buddy for those long walks. He has a playful personality and is very sociable, so visits to the dog park are also a great idea – he’ll be the star of the park.

Dean gets along with other dogs and would love a canine companion that could match his energy and want to be his playmate. He hasn’t been tested around cats, though, so there’s no saying how he’d act around felines. Due to his size (Dean weighs 50 lbs) and energy levels, he needs a family without any small children he could inadvertently knock down while playing. A family with older kids (teenagers) or an adult-only home would be a much better fit.

If you are curious to learn more about Dean, contact Delaware SPCA to get more information about him and the adoption process.
