Duncan is a special needs dog. He has a broken elbow that has rehealed and is non-operable. He was surrendered to a high-kill shelter this way. Duncan has undergone extensive physical therapy and is doing great!! He will need physical therapy the rest of his life - about every 4-6 weeks or as recommended by the physical therapist/orthopedist. Each session is approximately $80-120 and his medications are about $50/month. He is on a holistic anti-inflamatory and pain meds (only as needed), and a glucosamine supplement. He will also need to be seen yearly by an orthopedist. Duncan is a very active dog and will need to be kept active in order to avoid arthritis from setting into this leg. He loves to play fetch and is quite good at it. We want him to have a fenced-in yard due to this. He also has about 10-15 minutes of physical therapy exercises that has to be done every day. With all that said, none of this has slowed Duncan down. He is the fastest dog out of all his foster brothers and sisters. He is also a quick study and is eager to learn. He knows sit, wait, shake, high-five and is currently learning stay. Because he is such a people pleaser and eagerly ready to impress, he is easily trained. We are working with him on his leash manners when around other dogs.
Duncan is located in Frederick, MD and can be transported to an approved home.
