Howdy! My name is Duke and I am always happy to meet new friends! I was once wandering around feeling very lost, but someone found me and took me to a place called an open-admission shelter (also sometimes called a kill shelter). I was a bit overwhelmed in that crazy place but was still so happy to have people and dogs to keep me company. Lots of dogs at the shelter would leave their cages and not come back and the buzz around the place was that they were not leaving to go to new homes. Sadly, they were put to sleep because the shelter was very crowded. Since I was so nice to the three other dogs living in my kennel, I was marked as the shelter's "temperament pick!" I was just so calm and easy going that they picked me as the best boy! It made me feel very special since I loved the people and other animals so much. So, the fact that I was such an awesome boy really caught the eye of the folks at Finding Shelter. I moved into my foster home and things have been great. No accidents in the house, I play well with others (just don't let the other animals near my food bowl, that's mine!) and I was even great for a bath and at the vet. I would just love to find someone who wants a big teddy bear of a boy to love forever. I hope that my forever can be spent with you!
