DUQUE – Shepherd Mix / 1.5 Years / 13kg / M-Neutered
Duque is an active and friendly guy who loves affection and treats! This cutie loves to play with fellow dogs and humans, and he’ll cuddle up to his people too. He is learning to sit for snacks, is already house-trained, and he is working on his leash skills. Duque will need someone who will work with him to build his confidence, but he is already improving with each and every day.
Duque is very used to living among other dogs, so he will need a dog sibling in his future home, as well as access to a secure yard to hang out in. He would like a home with someone around most of the time since he enjoys being close to his people. We’d love to see him with a family who will take him on lots of adventures. He likes to be right by his people to explore new places and do new things.
Duque can be wary of loud noises and sudden movements can scare him, so any child in the home will need to be older and dog savvy. Given he has a bit of prey drive, we are going cat-free for this guy!
We know Duque will make a great addition to the right family. He’s such a smart boy who is still a puppy at heart, and as such needs plenty of exercise (both mental and physical!) to keep him engaged and happy. Duque also loves his squeaky toys and snuggling up to his person. He LOVES dogs, but will also go off on his own to play independently. Sounds kinda like a great family pup, doesn’t he!?
