In addition to the adoption fee of $350, I will require a training deposit of $150 which is fully refundable upon completion of a training course.
Duke has completed a board and train with an LR trainer and this is the latest update on him:
"He is the easiest dog ever, low energy - sweet, mellow and affectionate. He's great on leash and nonreactive. Happy to be a solo dog - indifferent to dogs and other animals (no prey drive). He can be protective over his food and can get growly with other dogs but is not aggressive (all growl no bite).
Duke's a super sweet dog. He really seems to be a one person dog, though he gets along with everyone he especially
bonds and wants to be with whoever he sees as his person.
Duke had been tied up and living outside in Mexico for approximately 5 years, since a puppy. His owner moved but due to his guardian angel, we were able to get him across the border to us and safety.
Duke met 3 dogs at his evaluation and was perfect with each one of them. A dog walked by with no reaction from Duke.
For never being anywhere, he is doing pretty well on leash too, and for his 2nd in/out of a car, he got in. Good job, Duke!
Duke is looking at such a bright future through LR, soon to become an inside dog with a person or family who will make him their world.
