I adopted Duke (was Davey) in August 2013 and we have been attached at the hip ever since. He is a very easy-going, mild tempered boy with a very big, goofy heart. He can’t control his tail or his licker and loves everyone he meets. I have found that we can’t have any soft toys or kongs because he will destroy them, but he’ll settle for a nylabone or a rope to play with. He can be a bit timid when trying new things but once he gets used to them he can’t help but be excited. He now has an older boxer brother and immediately bonded to him and now they’re best buds. Having his brother around has helped him gain some confidence and now he loves going to the dog park and the beach. He is amazingly patient around kids unless they pull on his ears and he has adapted very well to becoming a big brother to a baby human. I know I can always count on him for snuggles, stealing the blankets, snoring, and hogging the bed.
I want to thank the folks at CCCHS for letting me adopt my best friend. I believe it is one of the best things I’ve done and I’m sure he feels the same. These past 3 years have been a blast and I look forward to many more adventures with this goof ball.
