Meet DUKE – a big, beautiful and slightly klutzy German Shepard! DUKE absolutely LOVES being around other dogs and is currently enjoying his days with his new Boston Terrier BFF. He’s also living with a cat and has shown no real interest other than wanting to give her a good sniff. DUKE seems a little apprehensive of the sights and sounds of the city but still likes to stop and say hi to any new human and canine friends. He would love to invite them all back to your crib if he could. He is extremely social and just wants to be the life of the party. At home, DUKE likes to be by your side and will bark if he would like you to join him in another room. He is potty trained and has been mastering basic commands. He is extremely smart and is eager to learn new tricks. He’ll pull on his leash however responds well to correction and will be an all-star with the right training. DUKE gets 2 – 3 walks a day, adding up to approximately 1 hour. He does have some sores on his paws that we are monitoring however his back paw will cause issues for life and will need to be monitored regularly. DUKE does show signs of separation anxiety but is easily distracted by a treat that will take longer than 2 seconds to gobble up when you’re leaving the house. He has shown some possessiveness around furniture and toys and needs a home that will not encourage this behaviour. He is not food aggressive and actually lays down when he eats because he’s just looking to relax and indulge. DUKE has a naturally calm temperament however does not realize his size and therefore needs an experienced home without young children.
