Hi! My name is Duke and I’m super sweet and quite a character. My foster family is going to miss me so much because I am always going on adventures with them and their dog. My former father left me at a doggie daycare, where I met my foster family’s dog, Nala.  My foster family was nice enough take me home until I get adopted to spend time with my best friend!  We are always playing tug of war and goofing around together.   I LOVE other dogs and would like to go to a house with another dog friend to play with me. 

I’m very playful but once I start snoring it’s hard to wake me up. I sleep in my own bed and like to be covered with a “blankie" in cold weather. (A sweater would be nice in winter too, but so far I haven’t found one that fits over my big head.) I don’t chew or have accidents in the house, and though I don’t understand the concept of “fetch” I’m obsessed with my glow-in-the-dark ball and carry it everywhere. I like to bark when someone comes to the door, but am quiet most of the time. I am also good with children and will cover them with kisses. Every night, I love walking around the block and am getting much better with my leash.   

At almost 2 years old I was only recently neutered.  I had a cherry eye and had surgery to fix it with the help of my friends at Buffalo C.A.R.E.S and their fundraising efforts!   I love to cuddle and am looking forward to meeting my forever family.

Duke's adoption fee is $225 + $50 training deposit that is refunded upon proof of completion of an obedience course.

The Adoption process:
*Submit your online adoption application
* If you already have pets in your home, they must be up to date on their vaccinations.
*Once the reference & vet checks are complete and approved, we will be in contact to schedule a home visit and/or meet & greet with the animal you are interested in. All members of the family including any current pets must be present.
*Based on your references, home visit and meet & greet, we will approve or deny your application to adopt or recommend a different animal who may be a better fit for your home.
*If approved, we will set up a date for you to adopt your new companion animal. If an animal is not yet spayed/neutered, we will set up your adoption for a time after they have been altered. We will not adopt out any animal until they have been spayed/neutered unless the animal is determined, by our veterinarian, unable to be spayed/neutered due to a medical condition or that it would be a danger to their well being.
