Hey, my name is Duke. I’m a 3 year old Shepherd mix. Sometimes I can be a lil shy, and I’m not real sure what all you might want to know about me, but I’ll fill you in on my history. So, in January, a nice human picked me up and brought me here ’cause I had been hit by a car. I was in pretty bad shape… like a spinal cord injury (sometimes the way I walk is a little funny), and then on top of that I had heartworm infection! Well, all the humans I met here and at VCA Welborn took real good care of me, and now I’m all better and ready to find a forever home of my own. The heartworm treatment was no fun at all, but I know I needed it and am real glad that’s over with.
Uuhhmm… well… oh, I did hear our humans talking about a satellite adoption event called “Paws @ the Mart” that’s comin’ up this Saturday, June 6 from 11-2 at Nebraska Furniture Mart. I’m gonna stay here at the shelter ’cause Saturdays are usually when my favorite volunteers come in and take me for a few walks, give me lots of treats, and just hang out with me. I think Luke, Farley, Breann, Mila, and Lucy might go. Check out HSGKC’s website for more information. Maybe someone there will see a picture of me and want to meet me… that would be nice.
I do this “air licking” thing when I see a human I know and love, and they all think it’s real cute and make a big deal about how cute it is when I do that. I’m also real easy to walk on a leash, and I keep my kennel clean. I’m a sweet boy, but choosy about dogs… like if I had to live with a dog, one who is really mellow would be best… but I’d rather be the center of attention. I’m good with humans… I just have to warm up to new humans first. I’d like a home with adult humans, and older kids would be fine too. I did go to a home for a couple days, but there were rules with the kitties inside the house I didn’t really want to pay attention to… I mean c’mon, they run, I’m a dog, of course I’m gonna chase them!
Well… I tried this blog thing out, and even though I kinda skipped around a bit, I’ve never done this kinda thing before so I did my best… and I’m a lil nervous. Anyway, I hope the sun shines on Saturday for the satellite, and just in general… this rain stinks! All of us dogs are goin’ a wee bit stir crazy with all of this rain! Most of us are pretty good about not rollin’ round in the mud puddles, but the puppies and Romy… sheesh, they get our humans really, really muddy… which is funny, but don’t tell them I said that.
I’m gonna go outside for a few minutes before the rain gets worse. Don’t forget about the satellite adoption event on Saturday. If you want to learn more about me or how to adopt me, you can find that info on HSGKC’s website. Bye.
