German Shepherd Mix
2 years

With a big dog comes a big heart! Duke catches everyone’s eye with his size but wins their hearts with his sweet-as-can-be personality. He truly is the definition of a “gentle giant,” and wants nothing more than to spend a little time with his friends. And to Duke, everyone is a friend!

Big fan of: People! Duke has never met a stranger and happily trots right up to whoever is nearby to ask for pets with a big smile on his face! This guy absolutely adores scratches in all the good spots. He might even curl up with you on the floor for a good cuddle sesh! Duke doesn’t have much interest in squeaky toys, but tennis balls? Sign him up! Duke enjoys batting them around on the ground and is working hard on becoming a soccer superstar--even though he still has a ways to go! You can’t help but smile when you see this big guy clumsily kicking--and then losing track of--every ball that comes his way. 

Special features: At his core, Duke is a working dog! Like any German Shepherd, Duke prefers to be engaged in daily activities that keep him mentally and physically stimulated, and in turn, keep him happy and healthy!  

Dream home: Duke would do best with an adopter who can give him some time to adjust to his new home! This big boy has previously lived with cats, dogs and small animals. Meet him today to find out if he’s a good fit for your family!
