About Duke

Sweet Duke was dropped off at the shelter by his former people. As they not only neglected to take care of him, they gave no information why his hind legs are not yet mobile, as he came in dragging them - was it an accident? deterioration due to lack of movement? Unsure... but The REAL Bark felt there was one shot for him or the inevitable at a shelter. Then comes CARE of course! Duke is savoring his rehab exercises - underwater treadmill, acupuncture - all the things that CARE does well. Although there had been some minor improvements, it is likely that Duke will not walk on his own, but is getting a shiny new buggy so he can enjoy the outdoors. Duke is a 55 lb lowrider, sweet when meeting new people, and can be introduced to another dog with similar mellow, medium energy. He is ready for a foster or adopter who can give him lots of attention, love and a warm home.

THIS IS A GUEST POST: Please contact directly if interested in meeting this adoptable pup. Magic is a super sweet boy who is super friendly with people, and is very gentle with all humans. He would be great with older children 13+. If he were in a room with 15 people, he would be the life of the party, showering everyone with his smile, affection and kisses!!! He loves nothing more than to be next to his favorite humans' side and also understands when to give them space. Some of his favorite things to pass the time include eating, getting pets and massages, sunbathing, and grooving to reggae music. He's a quiet soul, rarely barks and does not have any destructive tendencies. He has medium to low energy with a very chill personality, so wouldn't mind a couch potato friend, but also can enjoy his regular walks. His past spinal injury has not kept him from any activity, but because he is a mellow fellow, couching the potato is not a bad pasttime for him. Magic would do very well in either a home with a yard or a condo or an apartment, and someone who can keep him on a regular feeding and walking schedule. He also would be best as the only dog in the home - no cats. Routine activity is beneficial to keeping him on a regular regimen post-spinal injury. And minimal activity is fine for this big boy. He would be a fantastic loving constant companion for anyone!!! If interested in learning more or meeting this fine boy, please contact: show less
