Duke is an empathic snuggle-bear! He’s that rare sort of pooch who is so thoughtful, and cares so much about how others feel, that he could easily become one of the most important ‘people’ in your life. He’ll come thump-thump-thumping over to you and then sit his soft, scruffy self in your lap – oomph! That’s a lot to hold in your lap! And then he’ll look in your eyes like he knows exactly what kind of day you’ve had. This dog loves absolutely everyone.
Duke is a perfect companion for hikes, runs or playing in the backyard. He will bring joy to you just with a wiggle of his tail. Duke is a big, strong boy that loves to go on walks, so he’s looking for an active guardian who can match his strength! He is over-all a gentle giant that could even do great in a family with dog savvy children! If you’re interested in bringing home this big snuggle bug, fill out an online application today!
