Duke‘s Story

❤️Duke is Available❤️

Please READ the bio and adoption requirements first to make sure you are a perfect fit BEFORE APPLYING.

Hello, I'm Duke, a 1-year-old male Poodle weighing 46lbs, and I'm brimming with energy and passion.

I thrive on being in the company of my foster parents. When they're away, I express my longing with a loving bark upon their return. Although I prefer not to be home alone for extended periods, I comprehend the necessity and willingly stay in my crate. Playtime is a favorite, whether with my foster brother or solo. While I enjoy lounging on the couch or bed with my foster parents, I retreat to my crate when fatigue sets in.

Weekdays kick off around 6am/6:30am, with outdoor play and potty time alongside my foster brother as our parents prepare for work. The day unfolds with indoor play, occasional backyard excursions, and eagerly awaiting our foster mom's return. Evenings are filled with walks or indoor play, followed by quality time until dinner around 8:30pm or 9pm, leading to bedtime.

Weekends are a joy as I eagerly rise with my foster parents for a day filled with play, outdoor activities, and park visits. However, I'm working on managing my anxiety when they need to leave, expressing boundless excitement upon their return. Channeling my abundant energy and avoiding unsupervised moments are ongoing challenges, but I'm making progress.
