Our Featured Pet


Hello! My name is Duke. I am a happy guy that loves to go for walks and chase a ball. I am potty trained and have made some dog friends since I have come to the shelter! I am good at the Sit command, especially if there are treats involved. I am eager to learn, and would love to learn some new tricks. Right now I'm working on not jumping up, and need someone who will continue to reinforce this.
