Duke is a happy, energetic boy. Our vet says he is a Lab Shar Pei mix, and we know he is one hundred percent adorable. Duke has all the best qualities of both breeds. He is loyal, clean, and snorty like a Shar Pei, and playful and goofy like a Lab.
Duke is a dream dog. He is good with other dogs and children, but because of his energy le vel, we suggest older, respectful children. He is submissive with other dogs, even if they're a little bit pushy and snarky.
While he was in our shelter, we thought that he was kind of an aloof dog, very self-assured and not too concerned about getting snuggles, pets, or attention from people. It turned out we were very wrong about that! He moved into a foster home recently and his REAL personality has definitely come out.
It turns out that, in his foster home where he's comfortable, Duke is a big love-bug. His fosters call him a "velcro dog" because he follows them around the house and always wants lots of love. He even sleeps in the bed with our foster family!
The foster home also has a smaller dog and a 14-year old kid. Everyone is getting along very well, and Duke is having a great time out of the shelter and in a real home! He's still looking for his forever home and his forever family.
Are you the perfect forever home for Duke?

Home visits required and dog adoptions often do require structural fencing. (We make decisions regarding the fencing requirement on a dog-by-dog basis, according to the dog's exercise needs and energy level.) Stafford SPCA does not condone the exclusive use of invisible fencing. We reserve the right to deny placement of puppies and kittens into homes with children under 5 years old.
