Hi, Im Duke! I am a charming, happy, Cattle Dog mix. I love to go for walks

or runs

(and I am really good at it!). I also love car rides, stuffed animals, and playing in a fenced-in backyard. I am completely house trained,

crate trained


and am very intelligent. I know what sit,

lay down


and stay mean, but I could use some more training to work on those commands and anything else you want to teach me. I love to run and play; I have a whole lot of energy, but I also love to cuddle, give kisses and be loved by my human companion


Basically, I just like to be doing what my people are.

I am very cautious of new people. I really prefer to come check you out first, and I really rather you dont pet me until I know you will treat me with kindness.

I may

have to meet you a couple times before

I know I can trust you


I cant tell my friends at Last Hope what happened to me before I came to stay with them, but all they know is that it takes me a while to trust people and be comfortable in situations. Because of this, I should not be in a home with young kids or teens.

My dream home would be with an adult family who is familiar with my kind of challenges and who has a physically fenced in yard. I also want 1 other playful dog around my size (50 pounds+) or bigger

to play with (I can play a little rough so they need to be tough like me) and a family who is very patient with me while I adjust to new people in my life.

I am a very loyal companion and I just want to please my humans!

Once I know I can trust you, I just want to be around you and will be your shadow as you go through your day.

I have also had my DNA tested! I am officially an Australian Cattle Dog/Harrier mix!
