Howdy! My name is Duke of Alabama and I'm ready to find my forever home.
I'm about 10 months old and full of energy!! Two of my favorite things are receiving lovin (lots of pets) and my toys! I get really excited for food too. I love to run and explore so a fenced in backyard is a must for my forever home. I play really well with dogs of all sizes but I prefer having a brother or sister that's more my size. Having another doggo friend would be ideal because it would keep me busy and I have so much fun playing with my friends! But beware, if I have a four-legged brother or sister I can be very possessive over MY bones (I'm still working on that sharing thing. I'm young so I'll need help with that).
I am fully crate trained but I still like to whine sometimes (I want to stay up and play) but I go in as soon as my foster mom says "go to bed". I'm young so still need supervision and training before I can be trusted to be out of my crate alone all day long. I would prefer an active family or a really awesome running partner to help me get all my energy out! I really love training time but I get distracted easily even though I am very treat-motivated. I love people! I am 'super sweet' my foster mom says but I have tons of energy so I may not do well with small children (I wouldn't want to accidentally knock someone over with all my excitement!).
I love to cuddle and feel loved. I am still learning to live in a house. When my foster mom got me, I was a little worried about the sound that came from this big screen that she calls a T.V. I later learned that the vacuum wasn't going to kill me, but I still prefer to stay as far away from it as possible.
I LOVE to be OUTSIDE! I like it so much that I'll even take my toys and bones out there to keep me busy when I get bored. I am learning and am VERY food driven so that makes it easier. I know a few basic commands but I could still use a little training time, which equals treats for me (I love treats!)!
My foster family loves me but it's time for me to find my own family to love. If you're interested in adopting me please complete an adoption application (if you haven't already) and email my foster mom Allison.
Note: Duke is a GSP puppy (under 1 year) that is neutered, fully vetted and temperament tested so my adoption fee is $475
