Duke is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s a 7-month-old, 26-pound beagle/harrier mix.

Duke is a young and active puppy. His new family will need to make sure he gets plenty of physical and mental stimulation. Being part beagle, he will need time to follow his nose and take his people on some adventures. Duke loves riding in the car and snuggling. He’s also going to need your attention from time to time when he has important information to share and he needs to “talk.” His other part is harrier. They were bred to hunt for hares by trailing them. They’re very much like beagles, but a bit more enthusiastic. Duke was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society through the FOCAS program.

The $145 adoption fee for Duke includes medical exams, vaccinations, neuter, and microchip. For more information call 760-753-6413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas, or log onto SDpets.org. Kennels and Cattery open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day but Tuesday.
