Hi, My name is Duke! I have found my forever home!
[button link=”http://petrehoming.net/adopt-a-pet/” size=”large” variation=”hotpink” align=”center”]Request to Meet Duke Here![/button]
There is a $150 adoption/rehoming fee. All supplies will be included.
To quote the great Mr. Elvis Presley, Duke “ain’t nothin but a Hound Dog!” This really handsome 1 year old Blue Tick Coonhound / Bloodhound mix is such a neat boy! He’s black and tan, and all ears! Duke has been neutered, is up to date on shots, and microchipped. He is perfectly house broken, crate trained and walks well on a leash.
Duke is sooooo smart. He has already learned quite a few commands; sit, stay, shake-a-paw, and even shake-a-back-paw. He usually comes when called, but needs a bit more work on it. All in all, this 60 pound bundle of love is a sweet, devoted, intelligent and funny companion.
Duke’s owners are a very busy Calgary family. Between work and school, there just isn’t enough time to provide Duke with the level of companionship he deserves. Duke needs lots of exercise, too, and living in the city just isn’t the best situation for him. Being cooped up all day and not getting the stimulation his intellect demands has resulted in occasional slight aggression. He just doesn’t want to recognize the authority of his owner. For these reasons, Duke is not suitable for a home with children under the age of 12.
Duke needs a very dominant presence in his life. An owner who can say: “Duke, I’m the ALPHA dog…. Chill!”
Duke’s ideal home would be in a rural area with dog lovers who have an acreage or at least a very big fenced back yard. He wants owners who are home a good bit of the time, and who like to get out and get some exercise. Duke needs lots of activity and someone he can hang out with and devote himself to.
Duke’s owners love him a lot. They realize they are not in a position to give him the time, exercise or leadership he needs, but would dearly love to keep in touch with the new owners to hear how he is doing. An occasional visit would be the icing on the cake.
