Alaqua Animal Refuge furever friend of the week

April 15, 2012

Exuberant, energetic and eager to please – these are just a few of the words used by the staff and volunteers at Alaqua Animal Refuge to describe Usher.  This handsome canine is a Labrador Retriever mix who is always happy and ready to play.  Looking at that face it’s hard to imagine  anyone could abandon him, but he was found lost and wandering along the roadside.  Now he is safe and sound at our peaceful ten acre sanctuary.  Content though he may be here with us, in his heart he’s hoping to become a member of a loving forever family some day soon.  Usher adores a good workout, so finding a special someone who enjoys being active as much as he does would be ideal. Although he is quite the people oriented pup, Usher also gets along well with other dogs, and never passes up the opportunity for a good romp with his friends.

If you would like to adopt Usher or any of the other available friends, contact Alaqua Animal Refuge at 850-880-6399 or go online at
