Meet Lucky Duck
I'm a 3 year old, 19 pound face-licking, couch-cuddling dog you'll ever meet. I enjoy walks, love car rides, treats, lying in the sun, body massages, back scratches, and did I mention cuddling with my human? My foster mum calls me silly as I like to amuse myself with my toys but I also like to play fetch and tug with her too. I'm good with dog savvy cats and will sometimes try to play with them. If they're scaredy cats, my inner rascal comes out and I'll try to chase them. I respect those that stand up for themselves.
I'm definitely a one person kind of dog and need to live in a single female home...sorry guys! It takes a couple of days for me to trust you, until then I ask that you don't touch me. Even though I may lie next to you or follow you around, it doesn't mean I'm ready for you to touch me. If you rush me, I may nip. It takes about a week before I start to show you my silly side and start giving you kisses. All I ask is that you are patient with me, I promise I'm worth the wait.
I have something that causes my skin to be super-itchy. I take Apoquel pills and cytopoint injections every 8 weeks. Both help in reducing my itchiness and they're something I will need for the rest of my life, or until we know what is causing it. Another thing I need to take for life is thyroid medication which is not expensive. Because of my skin allergies, I must be kept on a high quality diet. Unfortunately, I only seem to like kibble so one of the best quality kibble is Orijen. I can't eat any kibble with corn, by-products, or grain.
No apartments for me as I bark whenever I hear or see people outside or hear neighbors through the wall, not to mention if you have visitors. I'm submissive with dogs outside my home but I have attitude with them inside. I also resource guard people food from other animals so it would be best if I was the only dog. No children.
I'm up to date on all vaccinations and preventatives. I'm great in the crate and I'm housebroken as long as I'm kept on a strict schedule.

NOTE: Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
We expect that all adopted dogs will enroll in a formal dog training class with their new owners. Obedience and training classes are an excellent way to learn more about your newly adopted dog, gain handling and training experience, and improve your relationship with your pet.
