Dog of the Week: Duke/Jock

Julia D Dog of the Week


Hi, I’m Duke! I am a charming, happy, Red Heeler mix approximately one year old. I do excellent walking on a leash; I love to go for walks. I also love car rides, stuffed animals, and playing in a fenced in back yard. I am house broken. I do well with other dogs, and I would love a home with other dogs to help give me some confidence. I am very intelligent so I am very easily trained. I know what sit and stay mean, but I could use some more training to work on those commands and anything else you want to teach me. I should be around kids who are older than 14 until I get better at my commands.  I love to run and play; I have a whole lot of energy! I’m just transitioning out of my puppy stage! I also love to cuddle, give kisses and be loved by my human companion. I am very lovey! I am very cautious of new people. I really prefer to come check you out first, and I really rather you don’t pet me until I know you will treat me with kindness. I can’t tell my friends at Last Hope what happened to me before I came to stay with them, but all they know is that it takes me a while to trust people. Once I know I can trust someone, I am full of love and kisses! I am a very loyal companion and I just want to please my human companion! I can’t wait to find my forever home. I hope you will give me a chance to show you how much love I have to give!
