DUKEMIX

DUKEMIX
** Available For Adoption **

Duke, half-boxer and half-doberman, was born 2/4/13.  Although he was the runt of the litter, he quickly grew to be the biggest of the bunch.  I have had Duke since he was born (his mother is my boxer, still living, and his father was my Doberman, died from cancer in 2016).   

He is extremely loving, kennel trained, house broken, and a joy to be around.  He does require a lot of love and cuddles.  Plus, he will do anything for a treat!  Duke loves to lay in the sun when it’s warm but does not cold weather.  He loves it when you throw a ball or a stick and will run after – whether he brings it back or not depends on his mood.  He loves to lay his head on your chest for attention and cuddles but he doesn’t jump up unless he smells something really good is coming his way.  Then he will immediately go to his kennel and wait for you to give him his food.  He does have an overbite, so I mix his dog food (4 Health) with homemade gravy or chicken broth (just a little).

Duke is also the most adorable thief you will ever have in your home -- he loves to find treasures – even a paper plate will suffice.  He holds it in his mouth and prances back to his kennel like he has found a pot of gold.   If your home is not “dog proofed”, then you will need to work with him on what he is allowed to have as a treasure.

The only reason I am trying to rehome Duke is because his brother refuses to accept him in the pack.  A little background on the situation is that Duke’s mother, Gingy, had a litter of 10 puppies.  I was able to find loving homes for six of the puppies but failed to find the remaining 4 puppies homes so I kept them (2 males and 2 females).  As they got older, the 2 males began to fight – even though they were neutered, so I kept the males separated. 

Although all the females played together, Duke’s main friend was Sassy – she was always by his side.  Unfortunately, Sassy spotted a racoon and chased it under the house, where the racoon had the advantage.  Sadly, Sassy died from the injuries by the racoon in late November and Duke was left without a companion.  Although I have tried to work with both males, in anticipation of a reconciliation, my other male refuses to accept Duke as part of the pack, and Duke is devastated.  Although neither dog has been injured by the other, I am terrified that it could happen and hearing Duke cry when he is in his kennel is heartbreaking (previously both Sassy and Duke had their own room with kennels where they slept next to each other).

Duke gets along with female dogs very well.  He is current on his rabies and has been neutered.  For more information on Duke, please call Gail at (336) 263-0122.
