Duke is a three year old Boxer/American Bulldog estimated mix who weighs 75lbs. He was surrendered to a shelter and came to us because he needed more exercise than what he could get at the shelter. His previous owners recently had another baby and they didn't feel they had the time for Duke anymore.

Duke is good around other dogs but we are unsure about cats. He does great around kids, but feel he would do better with older kids because he can be jumpy when excited, and in general he could knock little ones over with his size. He needs to make sure he gets exercise and playtime to keep him happy. He will get into things if left to free roam when people are gone, so he is kenneled. He is housetrained and will bark to let you know he has to go outside.
He is overall healthy and should be walked with a gentle leader or other training collar because he can be a strong puller. Duke knows sit. He is recommended to be crated in a sturdy plastic crate. He is a smart dog and food motivated - he needs an owner who will get him the exercise he needs and will work on training with him. He's a very nice boy!


Adoption fee is $275 + tax (no checks)

This dog will be at our adoption event on Saturday at the Woodbury PetSmart from 11am-3pm waiting to meet you!

Our fosters do the best they can to provide all information about the animal's background and temperament while in foster care in their home. An adopters routine and home environment is likely going to be different than that in their foster home.

Sometimes there is more that comes out about a dog's personality once they have been able to settle in a home and truly become comfortable. There are great articles out there written about the different stages a pet goes through after adoption, discussing transitions that happen at 3 days, 3 weeks, and 3 months. We highly recommend reading about this - it will help you understand the transition your new pet goes through.
