Puppy Duke update: He is an energetic little fella who seems to be able to wear out and annoy other dogs regardless of age. At times other dogs have tried to “correct” Duke for his behavior. It is mainly due to his needle like teeth and razor claws that he gets crazy with using on humans and other dogs. Those who have spent time with him have referred to him as quite the handful.
Duke is still working on potty training and gets up every few hours to go potty throughout the night. He will sleep in the canvas crate in our room for some of the night, after protesting for a bit, but often doesn’t want to go back in by about 3am so we have been taking turns in the guest room with him. He is a good snuggle bug on the bed or couch when he is not biting you.
Duke has made progress in the last 2 weeks and now knows sit and come but the stay is not there but eventually he’ll be an awesome pup. He is of course adorable with his big ears and giant paws, so he will grow up to be a large handsome guy. He likes to play tug, a little fetch and with some toys. He also really enjoys playing in the dirt/mud, chasing critters and the water.
Duke is getting closer to being available for adoption. His next set of shots are scheduled for the 18th and then needs rabies. He also still needs to be neutered.
