Story
Duke is 5 years old. We adopted him from a family friend who had a litter of labs. Duke is a house dog through and through. As long as he has some toys he couldn’t be happier. Doesn’t chew anything around the house. He’s is super good with our two kids. We have never had any issues what so ever. He has tons of energy. With our busy schedule of travel kids and life in general we just don’t have the time to give him the attention he needs. He does have an allergy to beef and chicken protein based dog foods. We have him on a fish based food that works well for him now. All we ask is for a new home to be someone who will be kind to him and give him the attention he deserves. Greet dog all around.
