Male, 1 year, bully X, 60 lbs
Duke is an incredible dog. He’s a fantastic example of ‘mans best friend.’ Duke is unbelievably loveable, and unwaveringly devoted to his handler. He’s just over one years old, so he’s got tons of energy. He absolutely loves anything athletic, and requires a home that is definitely devoted to exercising him. Duke is also very inquisitive, and really enjoys intellectual games. He requires both sensory and physical exposure daily. If Duke does not get an adequate amount of energy expenditure, no worries! He’ll find something on his own to play with, which is usually a throw pillow, or a sneaker left laying around (and nobody wants that!). When Duke is left alone, he whimpers for a few moments, then lays down and is quiet. He does not bark inside the house. And seldom barks outside, unless he’s very excited. Duke can be left alone for about 6 hours, anything additional, his new owner should unsure he will be exercised prior to departure, and has a bone or two to keep him busy. Because he’s a natural born athlete, cats and small rodent type animals is definitely a no go. He’ll drive them crazy trying to chase them! Duke very much enjoys a pack. He enjoys the company of other dogs, but prefers females of similar size and stature. Duke does get along with male dogs, if properly introduced, and responds well to multiple meetings of the same dog. Although Duke likes to chase small animals, he can differentiate between small animals, and other dogs; Duke does not chase small dogs in the same way. Because Duke is so strong, and still understanding his size and strength, no minors should be present in his new home. Duke is house trained, and an absolute joy to walk on a leash. Very minimal pulling. Also enjoys car rides.
Duke needs an owner with strong energy, and a pack leader. Someone that is devoted to consistency. Because of Dukes level of strength, power, and devotion to his owner, he requires a mature, ethical, and experienced dog owner. Duke will do anything to please his owner, his love and compassion for his pack runs very deep. He will follow you until the ends of the earth!”
We love Duke very much, and we are devoted to finding him the perfect home that he deserves. In the meantime, he’s enjoying life here in Calgary with us!
Duke is being fostered in Calgary.
