More About Duke

This is how we first met Duke, a plea from a shelter volunteer….. “This boy makes me so sad. I just have a lot of love in my heart for him. He’s a really good dog from what I can tell with my interactions with him the past two days. He’s very sweet and gentle, I have not heard him bark at all which is rare for a hound dog but he just seems so chill and so easy-going. When I passed by his kennel he’s just laying on his bed, he’s definitely within the 7 to 9-year-old age range. We have a lot of trouble placing hounds but this boy is just really special and surely there is someone in this world that can give him a place to live.”

One of our dedicated foster homes answered his plea and Duke’s world has forever changed. Once living a life of neglect, Duke has received lots of TLC and all of the medical care he needed, including a professional dental cleaning, and is putting on some much needed weight. Duke is now a much happier, healthier boy and is ready to interview with families looking to love and cherish an older, more distinguished fella, who is still very active and young at heart.

Duke is crate trained, gentle, and has the sweetest temperament. In his former life he was most likely an outdoor dog, so he is working hard on his house manners and would benefit from a patient family who will continue his training, or join an obedience class. After a good romp in the fenced in yard and play time with a doggy friend, he is ready to go back inside and spend time with his humans. True to his breed, he is energetic, agile, and would love to do some scent work or a dog sport, some activity that would be challenging and fun to allow him the opportunity to use his strongest natural sense and build a trusting relationship with his new owner. He would make a great running partner or companion for long, brisk walks, and a home with a fenced in yard would be preferable. While Duke would enjoy playing at the dog park or some time at doggy day camp, he would do best in a feline-free home. Treeing Walker Coonhound/Foxhound mix, approximately 8 years old, 43 lbs.
