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.
