What can we say about Duke? He is awesome! He loves people, dogs, people and even cats. Oh, did I say he LOVES people? He wants to be with his human family. He is a lover! He follows his foster mom everywhere and if she’s not home he follows whoever is home. There are no children here so we are unsure of how he interacts with them. He does well with elderly folks and their walkers. He is not flighty, he is quite calm for a Brit but he does have his active playful time after dinner. He is good natured, sensitive and plays nicely with our young dog. He takes cues well from our senior dog and leaves him alone when need be. We are still working on Duke’s house training. He takes a bit longer to go to the bathroom. He keeps his crate dry but will ask to go out during the night. For treats, he willingly goes into his crate at night and when we are not home. He will even share his crate with his younger fur sister for short times. He needs work on all commands and walking on a leash. He is fearful of getting in the car but once inside he settles down nicely. Duke is a boy who does currently have some special needs. Due to his narrowing of the colon, he does have issues eliminating. He does build up excrement and he does have leakage. As surgery is not a recommended option for him, his foster Mom took him to a Vet who specializes in a more homeopathic treatment. He currently is on a regiment of supplements, special food and vitamins to help get him regulated. No sight unseen adoptions for this boy. We feel it is important that all family members (human and canine) meet to assure that we have a good fit. Duke is a very special boy. He is still a work in progress and will need a soft hand. He needs someone with the time, patience and consistency to give him guidance and perfect his doggie manners. Dog obedience is essential for Duke. If you would like to meet this wonderful guy you must complete the adoption application Duke came to us from a shelter as a stray. His past is a mystery. This little doll has been neutered and micro chipped. He is current on all vaccinations, is Heart Worm negative and is on Heart Worm Preventative. Shortly after coming into rescue, foster folks noticed bowel movements were difficult for Duke. Then foster Dad saw half a plastic bag come out. Duke ended up at the vet who did some exploratory surgery just to be sure everything was ok. It was, but the vet noticed a narrowing colon. The vet did a little manipulation and prescribed meds to eliminate the inflammation. All of this has racked up some hefty vet bills so Duke could REALLY use a Brittany Buddy to help with his vet bills. Click on the banner and mention Duke 5083.
