Duke's Story...
Duke’s big smile will give you some indication of this boy’s temperament. He is a fun-loving, happy-go-lucky boy that just wants to live life to the fullest with friends and loved ones. Duke is approximately 1 1/2 to 2 years old and currently weighs 40 lbs.

Here Is What His Foster Family Had To Say:

Duke is a big puppy. He just wants to be loved and cuddled. He is very friendly with everyone and just loves to play. He definitely hasn’t grown fully into his big paws as of yet. He reminds me of the dog from the movie “Up” and I can just see him as a fireman’s best friend. He is a very loyal dog and he tries really hard to do what is expected of him but sometimes life and exciting adventures just get in the way. Currently he still has a lot of puppy energy so I would call him moderate to high. He really needs a family that is committed to continuing his training and I believe he will be a wonderful best friend. He doesn’t shed much at all but this may also be due to his age. He is not shy of anything or anyone and is happy to make new friends with anyone. He loves other dogs but would need another dog of equal energy or one that loves to play.

Duke is still very much a puppy and we do crate him when we go out. He is very good when we leave and there is no issues with him in his crate. He goes in easily and stays quiet and relaxed until he is let out. He has no fear of anything. His favourite things to do are just to be with you, getting lots of affection and playing. Most of all he loves giving everyone kisses. On walks he will bark at everyone we meet just saying hello and hoping they will come and say hi. We have been working on this and he is making progress. He is learning that not everyone is as interested in making friends as he is.

Duke appears to be an intelligent dog. He has already learned “sit” and we are working on “stay”. I believe he will be easy to train as he is very eager and willing to please. He would really benefit from obedience classes where I believe he would excel. Duke is house trained and as mentioned above he is crate trained with no issues. He loves his crate and sees it as his own special place. He sleeps through the night in his crate and for a few hours during the day and is very good just patiently waiting to be let out. He is nearly leash trained but again, I believe obedience classes would improve his skills tremendously. He loves going out in the car.

Duke will make a wonderful family pet but currently due to his bounciness I would suggest older children would be best as he might jump on a young child. He really is looking for his bestest friend. I think Duke would be happy no matter where he goes as long as he is loved and is treated as a member of the family.

If you think this pet would be a good choice for your situation, please visit our main website at and submit an adoption application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Duke, a Hamilton Beagle/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Beagle/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Hamilton, or seeking a Beagle/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Hamilton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hamilton already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Hamilton breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Beagle/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Beagle/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hamilton paves the way for another one to be saved.
