Available Dogs DUKE (20-014)
DUKE (20-014) I’m Duke, a 7 year old, stately gentleman with a sleek physique and a silky coat. I can run like the wind yet stop on a dime; check out my VIDEO! While my demeanor is calm, I can get excited easily when someone comes home or rings the doorbell, and I may have a hard time following directions, but most of the time, I will. I am gentle with children, cats are unknown. My foster mom says that I probably will get along with cats because I don’t even chase squirrels or chipmunks that run in front of me. I love other dogs and that is my one bad behavior; I will pull very hard on the leash to greet another canine. Because of that, I am now wearing a gentle leader and learning how to ‘leave it.’ I am doing a pretty good job, if I do say so myself! I really have no other bad behaviors and am a good houseguest. I am an excellent watch-dog; no one will get in the house or yard without notice from me and my greeting of the new-comer is always exuberant because I love visitors. I would love a canine friend and a fenced backyard to play in, but do not need either. I love hiking and would also make a good jogging partner. I am very fond of water, of any kind; check out the VIDEO of my very first swim! I am very good at finding all the puddles on my walks, and the creek and lake are favorite spots, especially in the hot weather.
