Facts about Duke

  • Breed: German Shorthaired Pointer
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10835305


Duke is a 8 year old male GSP - his DOB was 11/2008.  He’s an owner surrender because his dad’s work schedule keeps him away from home for just too long each day and he doesn't feel it is fair to Duke.

Duke lives with a cat and grew up with kids.  He’s a friendly boy and love attention and affection.  He's energetic and a bit overweight from lack of any substantial exercise.  He’s been around other dogs and is friendly but he gets excited and between that and being energetic, his owner always worried he’d play to hard and be too much for another dog so he hasn’t had tons of dog interactions but those that he did were always positive.

He knows basic commands, walks well on a harness and doesn’t have any issues sharing food - in fact he and the cat eat out of the same bowl.  He is crate trained but only uses it occasionally at night.

Our Adoption Process...

You must fill out an adoption application. Once we receive that, we will have a volunteer call you to discuss our program in more detail, the dogs we have available for adoption and they will set up a home visit.

All GSPs are fully vetted with rabies, distemper and bordatella vaccines, fecal exam and dewormed, HW/Lyme/anaplasmosis/ehrlichia test, microchipped, spayed/neutered and given HW and flea/tick preventative before going to their forever home.

Some type of fencing is usually required, but based on the structure of the house and the energy level of the dog, it may be negotiable.

Adoption fees are $300 for any dog over 1 year of age, $350 under 1 year of age.
