Duke is a male, 42 lb., black lab mix, about 11 months old. This guy is tentative at first, but is warming up as he learns to trust humans and appreciate affection and all the wonderful bonuses that they have to offer. He is also learning to be more curious and independent. This boy is extremely playful with other dogs and we think he would probably prefer to have another fun loving, easy going, active dog in his forever home. Though interested in the cat in his foster home, he does not attempt to chase or hurt him. Duke does well with his 9 and 16 year old human siblings, but a quieter house setting with older or no kids would be fabulous, since he startles easily and is hyper-aware of his surroundings. Duke is house trained, knows sit, comes when whistled for and has good house & social manners. All he needs now is a fur-ever home!
