My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Duke is a 6-year-old treeing walker coonhound who was found as a stray in rural NC. He is a beautiful leash walker and would be a great hiking companion for someone.  Duke is very affectionate and happy. He enjoys his family and although he loves to be outdoors he also enjoys a soft bed!

Duke has very manageable resource guarding in a home environment- so will need an experienced adopter and a child-free home. Which is a shame because he loves children and is very gentle with them. He can go anywhere with you as he is very friendly and fun. 

Duke would do best with another dog or dogs in a home with a fenced-in yard.
