Duke is looking for a forever home.  This Dane is just a big fun loving, active and goofy guy.  Just 2yo, tall and weighing in at 110lbs, he is still a youngster at heart.   He has the curiousity and energy of a puppy that prefers a daily activity of chasing  a ball or enjoying  a brisk walk, yet is content sitting by your side to relax the day away.    Duke would do best in a home without small children, as he doesn’t know how big he is and can overwhelm a small dog.   Duke is a fabulous companion, walks well on a leash, rides great in the car, understands simple commands and is crate trained.   Though he tested positive for heartworm, he is currently on the slow kill meds and responding great.   This fabulous guy is waiting to meet you!

Duke is current on all vaccinations, has been neutered and has had his stomach tacked (gastopexied) 

If you are interested in adding this fun loving guy to tour family - his adoption fee is $500 and an online application can be completed at


 Please note we are a group of private foster homes and NOT a public shelter, we have weekly adoption events at the Unleashed petstore at 18138 San Pedro (1604 & 281) in San Antonio, on Saturdays from 11-3 . With an approved application on file we are happy to hold your chosen pet for 2 hours past the start of our event to give you time to get here. We routinely do adoptions throughout the Austin and San Antonio areas and the rest of Texas. We try to schedule bi-monthly meet ups in Austin, as interest is generated.

About Homeward Bound Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of private foster homes dedicating to saving and finding forever homes for as many dogs as we can. We primarily pull from the local kill shelters, and we also rescue abandoned dogs. We fully vet and assess the temperaments of our fosters and then try to find them the best forever homes possible. We do it because we love them and because we hope our efforts encourage others to do the same. We also participate in local rescue advocacy groups and work in public education efforts to promote spay / neuter and responsible pet ownership.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We aren't a shelter so don't have a public viewing area, but we participate in area community adoption events and schedule meetings with potential adopters by appt. once we have an approved application

Our Adoption Process...

Our policies, procedures, and fees are listed on our website and in our applications and contracts. We require an approved application prior to setting up a meeting (usually a home visit), a contract if the meeting goes well, and a trial adoption period before finalizing the adoption.
