Duke is a fun loving dog that deserves more attention. Duke came to us by way of rescue 10 years ago. He was roughly 2yrs old and his previous owners had left him at the vet. Throughout the years we have treated many ear infections, battled skin allergies, and accommodated him as his eye sight deteriorated. Duke is a smart dog with good intentions. He gets around extremely well considering his blindness and is always a happy dog. Over the past 6 years our family has grown and circumstances have changed to the point where Duke does not get the attention he deserves.
Lately Duke spends his days in the laundry room or outside, away from the kids and cat food. He gets weekly baths with medicated shampoo to keep his skin allergies down and eats only special dog food. We keep his hair short, to better manage the allergies, and clean his ears regularly.
Duke is a wonderful companion, full of love, who deserves a home with an individual who has the time to devote to his specific needs. He loves kids and gets along well with other animals, including a cat and one other dog we’ve had.
Please consider Duke! He truly deserves more than we can provide.
NWIPR's adoption process includes completion of an adoption application, a vet check, screening, in person meeting, a home visit and a lifetime adoption contract. NWIPR is the pet's advocate and will select the most suitably matched home for the dog's general and unique needs, therefore adoptions are not done on a first come first serve basis. We reserve the right to refuse service and adoption for any reason.
PLEASE NOTE: The information contained within this pet's biography is based on observations from the current foster home. NWIPR is very honest about the pet's behavior and needs (and provides up to date information), we cannot guarantee they will behave in the same manner in a different environment with new owners as individual household dynamics vary greatly.
CONSIDER FOSTERING A DOG
***Do you or someone you know have the desire to help a rescue dog? If you have a loving heart, dog experience, a safe and secure yard and the notion to make a difference, please consider fostering a rescue dog. There are MANY dogs that we just do not have room for and just one person can make a world of difference to a dog that needs a safe place to rest his or her weary paws.....***
