Duke is about 2-3 years old, and is a boxer mix!!!! We think Duke was possibly used as a bait dog, as he has scars on his body.
Now on to the better part....Duke is quite possibly the coolest dog that has ever come to this house. He has the funniest personality, and keeps everyone laughing. He sits like a human on the sofa, will paw at you to be pet, and he smiles....and did I mention he has the absolute cutest underbite EVER!!
Duke has a funny little run too, and loves to fetch sticks and balls for us. He walks well on the leash. He can scale a 4 foot fence, so it would have to be someone with a secured area. He is an absolute delight, and now I know why everyone was frantic to save him. He is VERY deserving of it!!
Duke loves to cuddle with people, and was great with everyone that came to my house. He loves car rides. It was something we could do to relax him. He definitely needs a very strong leader.
Updated bio: Duke does not like to be crated & we had to go to pretty extreme measures to keep him locked up. The prior foster in Texas would be happy to talk to anyone willing to give him a try. She really loved him and repeatedly said how loving and affectionate he is, but he does have issues. He is high energy, has some separation anxiety/crate issues so he would do best in a home where someone was around most of the time. He needs a strong leader, sufficient activity, structure and discipline.
Duke is good with most dogs, but can be male selective. He was good with my male dog for about 7 months, and then he decided that they were no longer friends.
Duke is not with Eleventh Hour Rescue, but is with a rescue group in Texas. His adoption fee is $375 which includes all vetting and transport to the Northeast. Please note that our rescues are saved from high kill shelters in TX. If you're interested in Duke, please email email@example.com for more information.
