PAWS New England
Hi, my name is Duke and I am a gorgeous black Lab. I am between 1-3 years old. I had a tough start in life, and my hind leg had to be amputated. I do not consider myself handicapped at all and this does not slow me down. I can run along just as quickly as any of my dog friends—did I mention I love to play with other dogs? I am smart, gentle, and obedient. I am nervous around children and am looking for a home with adults only. Won’t you please consider making me a part of your family?
What movie star would you want to portray you in a movie of your life?
Iknow this is odd since I am a boy and she is a girl, but I would have the actress who portrayed Bethany Hamilton in Soul Surfer. Bethany Hamilton was a rising surfing star when she was attacked by a shark at the young age of 13 and lost an arm. She did not let it stop her from pursuing her dream of becoming a professional surfer. I can identify with this, and she is my hero!
What do you dream of at night?
I dream of my forever home. My ideal day would involve lots of belly rubs, a long trip to the local dog park for some play time with some dog friends, and maybe a treat or two—followed by some snuggle time on the couch.
Why should YOU go home with a family right now?
I have been patiently waiting for a long time for a loving home. I am a good boy, and I am smart. I have been told I am a quick learner.
