4 years, Male, Medium Mixed Breed (Collie size)
Duke is a very timid and shy dog that needs a very patient home to take them on. When Duke arrived they were traumatized by the transport and hid away from us in fear. Duke will approach every now and again to take a treat from our hands.
Duke is a dog that will require time and patience to come out of their shell and learn to ‘be a dog’. They are a project but the rewards from adopting a dog like Duke outweigh the struggles they may have at the beginning.
Duke is a dog that has never wagged their tail at us in the rescue and they have never loved a human before. When taking on a dog like Duke you become their whole world, they finally learn to trust humans and learn that not all humans are scary.
Duke cannot currently be touched at the rescue and so has never known a kind hand. The day that you can touch Duke will be an incredibly special moment for you both…
Duke is not currently lead trained as they are so frightened. Staff will advise you on how to teach them to walk on a lead when they are ready.
