Duke the dog is looking for a new lovely home in the Toronto area

Duke loves language is touch. He likes to cuddle up close to his humans and will look at you with his big, beautiful brown eyes until you give him belly rubs. If you still don’t get the hint, he’ll hold onto your arm or hand until you cuddle him back – who could resist saying no to that face?!

Duke is also a very playful guy. He’s the best partner for playing catch, but he can also entertain himself with whatever toys he has around until gets sleepy. At that point, he’ll find a cozy spot to grab a nap. In his foster home, he likes to take naps next to a fluffy carpet in their home office. He’s a quiet, loving, and very handsome work-from-home partner.

Duke currently lives in the city and isn’t phased by the loud noises while he’s on walks. He’s also friendly with strangers, offering cuddles and kisses. But he is working on interacting with other dogs while on his walks. He’s currently at phase 1: completely avoid other dogs by crossing the street when you see another dog. But other than that, he has great leash manners – although you might feel a slight pull if he sees a squirrel.
