Duke was picked up as a stray, both positive for heartworms and suffering from a skin allergy, but otherwise healthy. Duke is young and quite playful. His favorite activities include chasing a laser pointer, car rides, chewing bones and being pet. He loves going for walks and does very well on a leash. He is smart and while he knows very few commands he would learn with some basic training in no time. He is good with dogs and cats but needs to go to a home without small children.
Duke is every bit a mastiff, large, loyal, and a guardian. He is a proud dog and sometimes needs to be reminded that he is not the boss. He is working on (and doing very well) learning his manners. He sits and waits for his food nicely at each meal. When told he waits for permission to go outside even when the door is wide open, and he is learning to patiently wait while his leash is put on.
Duke is being treated for his heartworm and his grain free diet does wonders for his skin allergies. He is overall a great pup that would be joy to have in any home!
