Tug was originally rescued by VT Dog Rescue in the summer of 2015. He came from a run-down, rural, high kill shelter in SC. We brought him to VT, completed his vetting and placed him in one of our foster homes while we reviewed his applications. We matched him with an amazing couple who have done a wonderful job raising him.  

Now, almost 2 years later, Tug's people have developed medical illnesses that make it challenging for them walk.  It is with great sadness they reached the decision to contact us about finding him a new home. 

Tug is a well trained, smart, affectionate Lab mix who has never met a stranger.
