Get ready for the Duke! He is a friendly and energetic 5 year old Labrador Retriever who is looking for his forever home. He has not met a dog or person that he does not like. He would love a friend to play along with - tug of war, fetch, chase, walks and swimming are just some of his favorite activities. He loves to be where his people are, sitting or laying down contently nearby. He adores the 2 and 4 year old that live here at his foster home. Duke looks forward to story time when he lays on my son's bed and then leaves when I leave.
Duke has a dietary special need - low carb, since he is a diabetic. He takes insulin two times per day after his meals and has frozen green beans as a treat. It is simple to give him his shot, he pretty much will come to you and sit down waiting for it. A frozen green bean treat was used to add positive reinforcement, so he always gets one (or two!) afterwards.
Duke does not like to be alone in the house when he can hear us outside. He is vocal and will bark off and on until we come in. He has not been destructive, but if he sees a way out (i.e. a screened window is open and he sees you out there) - he will most likely try to get to you. Simple precautions to make life with Duke safe and happy for everyone - and HE IS WORTH IT!! Duke is a super lovey dog, you will fall in love with him when you meet him!
