Rodeo Duke 5370
Duke is a white and orange neutered male Brittany, about 7 years old now. His ideal weight is 47 - 48 pounds Duke is a big boy that wants nothing more than to be with you all the time. Active and in the middle of things when you are up and about, he can get over excited, but will sit by your side when you sit as well. He is very housebroken, good with other dogs and cats, and has not been destructive when left loose in the house. He loves to be petted, sit with you, go with you. He can be a puller on leash, but will stop if asked by a knowledgeable dog person, or with no-pull equipment. He has done well as an office dog on a leash behind the desk. He just wants to be some person's or some family's pal. I believe he was starved for attention in the past, and he always wants all you can give him, but will accept boundaries when you have had enough. He has had no hunting training, but I have seen him sight point a flock of pigeons.
Duke is a white and orange neutered male Brittany, about 7 years old now. His ideal weight is 47 - 48 pounds. Duke does not especially like to be crated, but has done okay in the plastic Vari-Kennel crates. He has pulled wires loose in a wire crate though, and will tear up bedding if crated, but not when loose. He has really done just fine being left loose in the house.
Duke has apparently had a fracture of one front ankle, but it does not seem to bother him any. He does not jump well, despite normal hip x-rays, so does need a boost in the rear to get into some vehicles. He rides well in the car on a seat belt. He knows basic commands - sit, stay, wait, come, down, stop. He really enjoys the wading pool in the back yard, and will use it daily.
Duke would do well with a person or family that wants a loving involved pet, willing to give him the attention and structure hr thrives on.
Duke was picked up as a stray in Las Cruces, NM in June 2016, and not reclaimed. He was transferred from Mesilla Valley Animal Services to Brittany Rescue in Albuquerque. He was fully vetted, and adopted by a couple in northern NM. Two years later, their own health issues have forced their decision to return Duke to rescue
