Duke

Duke is still waiting for his forever home. Duke came from a south Texas shelter where he was an owner surrender; they said he was showing signs of age, had difficulty walking, and became aggressive with the grandchildren. Duke has displayed none of those characteristics since being in rescue. Zero! In fact, Duke runs laps around the yard and is tough to catch. He flies and forgets how hot it is now because he enjoys that freedom. The shelter was also told that he lived his whole 8 years in the house. It’s no wonder he loves being free and sniffing every blade of grass, watching trees blow in the wind, and being reluctant to come in! Duke recently also had a dental. He visited our veterinary dental specialist because his mouth seemed out of alignment, but it is only because at some point he somehow lost key teeth which help the tongue stay in. He rests his tongue where those teeth once were. But today, he’s very healthy, had no extractions with his dental, and his eyes and ears are good. He is also a handsome boy and is both crate and house trained, does well on a leash, and does not appear to be bothered by other dogs. Duke is on no medication and is cooperative at both the vet and groomer. He’s looking for his forever home!
