Duke is enjoying the nicer weather and loves to go on walks and play outside. No small dogs or small animals for Duke as he does have a higher prey drive.
Duke loves all humans. He has not lived in a home with small children so would be best suited to a home with older children.  He lives for pets, and will not hesitate to sit on you or nudge your hand to get the attention he thinks he deserves.  He is Incredibly smart and super food-driven which makes him a fast learner and easy to train.  Duke will do anything, if the reward is a treat or play time.  He is extremely agile, and has a passion for balls of any kind! 
He is still very young, playful and active, but surprisingly extremely quiet. 

Duke is always down for an adventure, especially if its in the form of a walk! He loves exploring his surroundings, and always finds a stick to play with. Duke does have a high prey drive and is not suited to a home with cats or small dogs. He would be best being the only dog in the home and having some doggie friends outside of the home to play with.  

Hes an amazing companion, and just needs the structure to become more independent.
