Breeds: Pit Bull Terrier, Crossbreed
Duke is an energetic and loving dog.
Duke was picked up by a Good Samaritan in her neighborhood on the side of the road.
He is looking for a great forever home! He would prefer a home with a privacy fence and he has been known to try to escape. He needs a doggie playmate as he loves to play and is full of energy. He does need someone with patience because he can be stubborn. Duke still has puppy like behavior, likes to chew.
He does not have any aggression. He protects his yard, likes to intimidate strangers, but as soon as they get out of car, he just wants lovings. He does hunt small rodent type animals like rabbits, squirrels, chickens, so would not be good on a farm. Keeps the wild hogs out of foster moms yard. He even alerted foster mom to snake under Wheelchair ramp. All dogs in home are fed dry kibble and fed separately and he does well with that routine.
Duke gets the zoomies a lot- it is very cute! He loves water….any creek, lake, anything like that but hates a bath in the tub. Likes to talk, rarely barks. Loves belly rubs. Thinks he’s a lap dog. He is not fed people food, does not beg for food, but is food motivated. He’s very smart and has been taught to “sit” and “down”. Working on recall, because he has poor recall when he sees a squirrel, possum, or anything rodent like. Kids at scout-arama loved petting Duke and Duke loved the attention. When out in public, people are impressed with how well behaved he is and how well he minds. Loves men and women equally!
Duke is a great dog with a few rough edges. With proper training he will be an all star!
