Not only charming and affectionate, Duke is quite a hunk, too! Magnificent to behold, this well put together canine has both personality and temperament worthy of as much awe. Above all else a loyally devoted family companion, he is a confident, self-possessed, sociable, and sincere dog who will form deep bonds with his family members. Loyal and loving, Duke is a people-dog who craves companionship and close contact, and he thrives with praise for accomplishment.
Neither fawning, nor demanding, Duke requires a confident, responsible, and caring owner who will provide clear rules and boundaries---consistently followed by all family members--- from the get go. Duke may push limits and take liberties if he senses novice or weak leadership. His success, then, lies with an assertive---never harsh---leader who provides structure and guidance in a firm, consistent, and fair way. Like all dogs, Duke needs the security of routine and knowing what to expect…and what is expected of him.
Active, inquisitive, interested, and fun-loving, Duke needs regular physical and mental exercise to maintain his athletic condition and pleasant disposition. Also attentive and intelligent, he learns quickly but needs to be challenged, or he is likely to become bored and willful. Duke excels in obedience and has already mastered a few commands, like sit and stay. He will benefit from and really enjoy training and socialization classes. This will also be an excellent way to bond with him while reinforcing good canine manners. Duke revels in outdoor fun…regular leashed walks, shared playtime, solo romps in a secure area, and adventurous outings alongside his beloved family members should meet his exercise needs. A more enjoyable, affectionate, and steadfast canine family member you will be hard-pressed to find!
Duke is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a moderately-active lifestyle. As with all dogs, a meet-n-greet with any housemate dogs will be necessary to determine compatibility prior to adoption. Direct interaction with cats is unknown and cannot be fully assessed at the shelter at this time.
Come meet Duke at Monroe County Animal Control located at 911 S. Raisinville Rd, Monroe, MI (just south of the fairgrounds). Kennel hours are Tuesday - Friday, 11:00 am - 3:30 pm; Saturday, 11:00 am - 2:30 pm; closed Sunday, Monday, and National Holidays.
For more information you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the shelter during business hours at 734-240-3125.
Monroe SPCA also offers microchips for dogs and cats adopted from Monroe County Animal Control for a fee of $15.00 at the time of adoption. Microchips are implanted between the dog’s shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. Microchips are registered to Monroe SPCA with adopters adding “new owner” information after adoption. If the dog is ever lost and slips his or her collar and tags, the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact when the dog is scanned for a microchip.
Even if you cannot adopt at this time, please consider making a donation to Monroe SPCA so we may continue saving, protecting, and improving the lives of homeless animals in Monroe County.
In addition to providing emergency medical treatment to animals who need it, Monroe SPCA, now, provides every dog at Monroe County Animal Control with basic preventative health care which includes flea preventative, deworming(s), DHPP vaccine and booster, and Heartworm Testing. If a dog tests positive for Heartworm, Monroe SPCA also provides that dog with Heartworm treatment. Dogs adoptable through Monroe County Animal Control have no adoption fee at this time (adopter’s pay a $10.00 application fee and $25.00 sterilization deposit payable to the County of Monroe); this Monroe SPCA Operational Support Program at Monroe County Animal Control is funded solely by monetary donations. We do not receive government funding, and we are not affiliated with or funded by Monroe County Animal Control, the HSUS, the ASPCA, or any other humane organization. Monroe SPCA is a 501c.3 non-profit organization, and we rely on the financial support and generosity of individuals and businesses in our community to conduct our daily operations and help animals. All donations to Monroe SPCA are tax-deductible.
