Hi everyone! My name is Duke and I'm a precious 9 year old boy. It is a package deal because I'm very bonded with my brother, Chuck. We've been assured we can be together forever and always. So if you've ever considered bringing home two amazing boys..here we are!
We are both sweet, gorgeous and lots of fun. Our prior family had to give us up because they had become unemployed. But the new family who adopts us will feel like they won the doggie lottery!
Because of a special medical condition that my brother Chuck has, a two person home with no young kids will be the best match. We need someone(s) who is not gone from the home for long hours, who does not need to keep us crated, and who is willing and able to give life saving medication several times every day to Chuck.
IMPORTANT:Chuck has been diagnosed with Fanconi's Disease. Anyone who is interested in adopting these boys needs to do research on Fanconi's Disease before inquiring about an adoption. This is a special needs bonded pair.
Caring for Chuck will involve giving regular nutritional supplements, access to fresh filtered water at all times, and allowing him to "do his business" much more frequently than other dogs. A fenced yard would be a requisite for this (no apartment/condo living). Chuck will urinate voluminously in the house if not taken out every 4-6 hours. Venous gas blood tests as well as other medical tests will be necessary every 10 weeks or so in order to calibrate his dietary supplement regimen. This will be needed for the rest of his life.
