Hi, my name is Duncan and I am 10 years old, a senior dude. I am a Rottweiler/Lab mix. I’m the Grandpa here at IAR but I’d rather be considered one Cool Dude. I’m a Cool Dude that has had a really rough life until I was rescued. See, here’s my story: IAR Volunteers saw my URGENT posting. I was found as a stray walking around Schaumburg. Animal Control picked me up & brought me to their kill shelter. I had up to 12 noon one day for someone to rescue me. IAR got me out of that place with 2 hours to spare. Not many Rescues help senior dogs like me but they saw past the few grey hairs I have and brought me to this really nice foster home. But they first took me to the vet because, see I had some health issues. Don’t we all at our old age? My foster Mom can tell you all about all the vetting that has been done to me but the biggest thing I had done was I beat the Big “C”. Yup, I had Cancer. In two places. Scary, huh? That’s what makes me a Cool Dude and so lucky to have all the people at IAR & my foster parents to be helping me. But because I beat Cancer I lost my leg but that’s okay because dogs like me don’t notice stuff like that and I get around with no problem. I have no problem getting up or walking around. My foster Mom thinks I would probably do better in a home with no stairs. I’m house trained and I really like my crate which I like to go hang out in during the day & night. That’s my “dog” cave. I really like to just hang out either by you or just on my own. I’m good with other dogs but cats, hmm let’s just say we won’t be BF’s. Even though I’m getting up there in age and I am missing my back leg I might surprise you – I can still chase a cat. I’m okay with kids too. I like them but I’m not the kind of dog that will play with them. I really would like to just spend my days & nights just hanging around people who care about me. At first when I came into my foster home I wasn’t used to people loving me so I wasn’t used to human touches. Now that I get petted all the time and people giving me affection …. I LOVE it! My future care is all I need to do is watch my weight which I’m doing that okay. Even though I love food my foster Mom is watching my treats and she’s giving me vitamins. It’s called Glucosamine but my Dr (the vet) says I am all better so can you call my foster Mom so you can meet me? I’ll be just hanging out waiting for you. See you soon, Duncan.

Duncan is located in his foster home in Frankfurt. To fill out an adoption application, please visit:
