Duke's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Duke's Story...
This is the information we received from Duke's family:

Our family is being relocated overseas in May, and we're sad to be in the position that we need to re-home our family dog, Duke. Duke is 8.5 years old, and a very good dog. He is fully house-trained, but also comfortable staying outside (he is currently an inside/outside dog). He is up-to-date on all of his shots, (vet records available for new owner to have) and he is also has a micro chip.

Duke is child-friendly, (we have a 3-year-old) and is perfectly content when he can sleep most of the day. He weighs approximately 90 pounds, and comes with his dog house, food bowls, food storage bin, collar, leash, brush and dog bed. While he is a bit lazy, he loves to take walks, and be around people. He is also cat-friendly and dog-friendly (we are currently staying with family until we leave and Duke gets along with their two dogs perfectly fine).

Duke does have one small benign tumor on one hind leg that has been tested, and shown not to have illness associated with it. He did have heart worms when he was six years old, but was treated, and then shown to be completely clear of heart worms after the treatment was complete. He has been on monthly heart worm medicine since that time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Duke, a Austin Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Austin, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Austin.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Austin already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Austin breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Austin paves the way for another one to be saved.
