Hi all – Duke here. I am a 1 ½ young boy rescued with from a puppy mill. Boy has life changed for me…and all for the better!!! I will be two years old in March 2018. I am a tall boy with lots of energy that my foster family is trying to harness. Because my first two years of life were in bad conditions, I have to learn social skills and confront my fears. I am teaching my foster family about those fears and they are encouraging me and loving me through my progress. I need my forever family to spend time and energy to help me continue to progress. And my foster family needs to be patient with me so I can continue to grow into a terrific young man.
I am a huge cuddle bug and love attention! I like to chew on my hard chew toys. I travel in the car in a crate and I like that. Going to the vet is new to me so I get scared but am very sweet to the vets and techs. They have told foster mom how lovable I am….pretty cool for me. I crate easily but get to be out in foster mom and dad’s bedroom at night. I do crate when they are gone to make sure I don’t have accidents or get in trouble. I am learning to go for walks but need patience with this as I sometimes get scared and need encouragement.
Because of my size, age, and energy, I would be best in a family with children over 10 years of age. I am fine with other dogs. I haven’t met cats so no comment there. I am learning to play with my two-year old foster brother. Foster mom and dad think I would be most successful with a furry friend at least 4 or 5 years old or older. I would be fine as an only dog. I definitely need a yard with a structural fence so I can go outside and enjoy life! If you have an approved application on file and would like to meet handsome Duke, please email Marcie.
