Adoption Pending 14 June 2017!!
A big Texas Howdy from Duke!! Personality / Traits - Duke is a big brittany with lots of love and a fun personality. Duke gets along wonderfully with with my 5 other dogs and has recently met my indoor cats. Not sure I would trust Duke alone with the cats however there is potential for him getting along just fine with them.
Duke loves to get in the water and walk around chasing dragonflies, etc. Duke also loves to run in the grass then plop down and roll around like he just invented the back scratcher technique. Duke does well inside the house however it appears he enjoys being outside watching birds, etc. Duke travels in a car very well and has not had any accidents in the house.
Medical - When he first came to my home he weighed 65 pounds and even though he is a big Brittany we think he would look great around 55 pounds. To date he has already lost 5 pounds and looking really great. He is up to date on all his vaccinations, neutered, microchipped and heartworm negative. He is on HW prevention as well as flea & tick prevention.
It appears Duke is hearing impaired. Not sure if he is 100% deaf as he does turn his head on occasion when my phone rings or something makes noise on the TV. He compensates extremely well by watching what the other dogs are doing as well and keeping close eye contact with me. Due to his hearing I would require a home with a fenced yard with no access to the street.
Needs - would love to see Duke go to a home with an existing dog where he could be apart of the pack OR a home where someone is home a lot as he likes being around either dogs or humans.
Duke is an owner surrender who could not take him with them on thier move. He was kept in a large outdoor kennel with another dog. The owner obtained Duke from a rancher in 2010 whereby the rancher stated Duke did not hunt.
