This handsome boy, complete with the awesome ability to curl his tongue, is Duke! Duke is approximately 3 and a half years old and weighs around 60lbs. Through no fault of his own, Duke found his way to our Adoption Center through our Humane Law Officer after he was left behind when his owner moved out. As you can imagine, this experience was quite confusing for Duke, but we’ve been giving him lots of TLC and have spent a lot of dedicated time with him and have seen him just blossom! Duke is eager to learn and takes treats (his favorite are hot dogs) very gently! He’s already learned sit and are currently teaching him ‘down’ – he’s loving his training sessions with the staff and volunteers and would love to continue with his new family! This smarty pants loves to play with toys and really has so much potential!
Duke is doing well with most dogs he meets on leash at the Center- he gets excited to greet most new dog friends and then either wants to walk together, or walk away to do this own thing. So, Duke may be able to have a doggie roommate. We think Duke could successfully cohabitate with older kids too- it just depends on the family. Bring everyone when you come to check him out! Dukes rides well in the car and is generally quiet, calm and well mannered in his kennel so he is likely crate trained. He went on a sleepover to a volunteers house and he was accident free during his stay- so he’s likely house trained too. What more could you ask for in a dog? Smart, handsome and already so well trained!
Duke is already neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and micro-chipped so come fall in love with this big, loving boy today- he’s ready to pack his bags and head home with you!
