Duke came into Senior Staffy Club due to a change in his owners’ circumstances and he was not getting on with the other dog in the home.
He is an excitable boy, but has clearly been well trained.
Duke is currently in our Worcester kennels. When he arrived at the kennels, he was a whirlwind of fun and excitement. He has calmed down hugely, but he is still very playful. He really loves to play with the large boomer ball.
Duke is a super friendly boy, he loves to be stroked. He also enjoys the treat puzzle games, which he is very good at.
He has been very well trained and is lovely, and gentle when taking his treats.
Duke walks very well on the lead. He walks by your side most of the time, unless he is having a lovely sniff in the hedgerows. He doesn’t pull on the lead.
He has not shown any reaction to other dogs whilst out walking, but we have not allowed any off-lead dogs to approach him, we don’t think he would be comfortable with that.
He has loved off-lead play in the yard at the kennels, he loves to play ball and will bring it back to you.
The kennels are in quite a rural area, so Duke has loved sniffing through the wooded footpaths. He has shown interest in the lambs in the fields, but happily walks on when asked, although we feel he would chase them if allowed.
He hasn’t reacted to walkers, push bikes, horses or traffic passing him whilst out and about.
We have not tried Duke in the charity van yet but will do so.
The vets came to the kennels to see Duke and he was very good boy, he stood still for his health examination, blood tests and vaccinations.
He has had a full health check, including blood test, and all levels are within normal ranges.
He does have a small skin tag on his left front foot and in his armpit, but these do not bother him.
Duke is in good health, the only thing the vets picked up on was his teeth. The vets advised he would benefit from a scale, and possible dental work. This has been booked and will be done before he is rehomed.
• Duke's previous owner tells us he is not good with other dogs, so he would need to be the only dog in the home.
• Children would need to be 12 years plus, as we do not have any history of him being around children.
• He cannot live with cats or small furies.
Duke is microchipped, neutered and vaccinated.
He is currently in our Worcester kennels, but he can be rehomed anywhere in the UK, pending a successful home visit. However, any adopter should be willing to travel to meet him at least twice where she is now.
There is a non-refundable adoption donation of £120 for Duke and all money donated goes directly to helping all the Senior Staffies in our care.
