  Duke, 11 months Male German Shepherd  Mix

Duke is an 11 month old neutered male floppy-eared Shepherd boy who is just a big puppy. He was born on 4/16/2010. He and his brother lost their home when their owner relocated. Duke loves attention, gets along well with other dogs and loves people. He also loves to get down on the floor and wrestle with you. He loves to fetch but does not always bring it back to you. Duke is a wonderfully sweet puppy who just wants to be with you, wherever you are. He is very velcro, has no food issues, a big appetite as befits his small pony look, and is a great running companion. He works off his energy outside and in the house just lies around at your feet. He crates well, is house trained, loves and needs his chew toys, comes when called. He is still a bit clumsy and can be a bit spooked by very large noises initially, but loves to give kisses, and is learning not to jump on you! He is tall enough to eat off a counter so beware of leaving food out there! He is a big strong pup, but is very trainable and will respond to leash training. A wonderful dog who loves all other animals and people. Would make a great only or second dog.He knows how to sit, lay down, and give paw. He got along fine in a temporary foster home with 9 other dogs, ranging in size from small to large. He's housebroken and crate trained and rides well in the car. He's happy to see you so may jump up, hence would not be ideal for a family with small children. He is leash trained, but will pull on leash so we will provide a no-pull harness. He will need a fenced in yard or an adopter who is dedicated to walking and running him. He weighs 76 lbs. To speed the process, please fill out an application before coming to meet him and we will print it out when you arrive. He is available now.
