House trained and well-mannered, Duke is a gentleman who loves to greet you with his bowl or a toy in his mouth. He may have a distaste for lawn maintenance equipment, but he makes up for it with his love for car rides and walks.

Story
Meet Clyde, the epitome of tranquility in the form of a senior dog. This seasoned canine companion embodies a serene demeanor that effortlessly puts everyone at ease. With a heart eager to please and a gentle spirit, Clyde naturally falls into the role of a loyal follower, content in the company of both humans and fellow canines. While initially reserved around strangers, Clyde quickly warms up once he senses the sincerity of their intentions. His calm nature extends to his living habits; he's house trained, though may need extra attention if left alone for extended periods. However, Clyde finds solace in his crate, where he often retreats to unwind and relax. Despite his mature years, Clyde hasn't lost his playful spark. He has bounce in his strut, and he eagerly awaits the return of his foster parent from work, ready to engage in some delightful antics. While he's adept at handling a few steps, Clyde hasn't ventured into staircases indoors, preferring to keep to familiar ground. Though generally composed, Clyde can exhibit defensive behaviors when he feels threatened. However, his bark is much worse than his bite, as he's never resorted to aggression, instead opting to ease into calmness when met with a tranquil environment. Clyde isn't just a senior dog; he's a testament to the enduring charm and loyalty that age brings. With his chill demeanor and unwavering companionship, Clyde is the perfect addition to any loving home looking for a serene soul to share their days with.
