Duke is currently in a foster home and not at the shelter. To arrange a meet and greet, please email jpasfosterEB@gmail.com
His foster says, 'Duke is exceptionally friendly with other dogs and loves to curl up on the couch with his people. He does well with structure. Duke life was hard before the shelter and he is a shy, sensitive boy who needs a family with patience. He is about 40 lbs right now, but will probably be between 50-60 lbs when fully healthy. He doesn't realize how big he is and can get excited, so a home without small children would be best, although I'm sure Duke could be trained not to jump. Potential adopters should meet Duke a few times before taking him home since he can be fearful of new people.'
Duke would probably do best in a home with another confident, playful dog whom he can learn from and will be his companion.
The Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter adoption fee is $67. The adoption fee includes vaccinations, mandatory spay/neuter, heartworm test, and microchip.
