Hi, my name is Duke. I am 6 years old and wormed, flead, fully vaccinated and neutered. I have just passed a full health check too and the vet was very pleased with me. Although I do need to lose just a little bit of weight!
Well, where do I start. Let me tell you about all the good stuff first.
I don't really react to other dogs, I am a little more timid around big dogs and I might bark but that's all. I never start any trouble. I walk well in a harness, I love walks! and I don't pull either and I can walk to heel.
You can take toys off me and I don't snap or get upset. During meal times, I'll just sit and watch. I'd never try to take your food or beg for it. When I go to bed I sleep in my own bed in my fosters bedroom, and they don't hear a peep out of me all night. I can travel well, I don't mind my travel crate either. I like all people and actively seek attention, but I don't jump up I just want to be acknowledged. I am fine in busy areas, with sirens. heavy machinary etc, there's no reactions at all. I am fine in parks with lots of people, dogs and cyclists too!
I pretty much eat anything but my fosterers have me on grain free kibble and some vegetables.. I like carrots now too. I take treats really nicely, I don't try and grab them.
I love cuddles and belly rubs and I do like a game of tuggy/pully during the evening. I'm not keen on playing with a ball though.
I am fine with the vet, quite happy to go off with them into the vet room but wasn't too keen on having my nails cut. I guess I'll get used to that. I don't think I've had them cut before.
There's no prey drive, not even with rabbits, cats or deer. They don't interest me whatsoever. I don't try and escape from the garden either.
This bit makes me blush but my fosters said I am an absolutely super fellow who has never shown any aggression or reaction at all. I am a well mannered young man. I understand and obey all commands.
Now for the bad bits -
Oh wait there aren't any.
Except for I did have a little accident in my new foster home on the very first day, but not since! I know now to ask to go outside to the toilet.
Oh AND this bit is important. I prefer older children, not babies. I think I can get a little jealous. I haven't snapped or anything or even growled but there have been signs that I feel just a little bit uncomfortable around babies so I think dog savvy children over the age of 7 would be better for me.
