Luke is a handsome young pup with charming temperament. Under the loving care in foster home, Luke has transformed into a sweet and cuddly pup. He’s no longer skittish and reserved as we first met him; instead, he becomes very sociable; he’s comfortable around strangers and new environments. He walks in busy streets with confidence; he no longer has problem interacting with strangers. He is watchful though, will give short barks when strangers visiting our house, but will calm down and greet when he does not feel intimidated.
He enjoys the companion of dogs in his foster home a lot. His favorite pastime is hanging out with dog pals in the park and his daily walks. He’s good with his foster family’s cats too. He is friendly with children, but will shy away from young children under 7-y-o.
About Luke’s rescue:
Luke was born to a stray mother dog; they lived by the riverside. A volunteer was regularly feeding the strays in the area; she also did TNR (trap/neuter/release) for the dogs hoping to cut down the stray population as best as she could.
Thankfully, Luke’s mom was caught and spayed by the volunteer after two years of relentless efforts. Meanwhile, the 3-m-o Luke was taken in by the volunteer and placed with a loving foster home. Luke has since been trained to socialize and learning good house manners. Please watch Luke’s videos to learn how much fun this sweet pup can bring to your family as long as he’s given a second chance!
