This week we feature a sweet older pup from Humane Indiana Shelter in Munster. Meet Duke!
Duke is a sweet 8 year old neutered male. He is up to date on core vaccines (Rabies, Distemper, & Bordetella) and he is heartworm negative. He is microchipped and has gone through a round of deworming.
Poor Duke was adopted from the shelter back in 2015 and his family had to move abruptly and were not able to take him with.
Duke is a lazy boy and loves taking naps. He will often just snooze either in your lap or very near. He absolutely loves toys, particularly plush toys that he can de-stuff. He prefers to be around people and is very social. His previous owners reported that he got very lonely and would seem to be stressed when left alone so they suspect he may have some mild separation related issues and that he needs a home where someone will be with him often. He also seems to be scared of loud noises. He previously lived with adult men and women and children under 12 years old. The previous family reported he got along well with everyone although he was weary of babies & toddlers and wouldn’t go near them.
He lived with 2 other dogs before and they got along very well and often cuddled and played.
His previous owners reported he was house broken and never had accidents. He knows basic commands such as “sit” and he walks well on a leash. He’s a very well-mannered boy and has already become a favorite amongst staff and volunteers. His adoption fee is $40 and he is ready to go home!
