Duke was surrendered to the shelter 2 weeks ago due to financial/divorce issues. He is urgent due to kennel aggression, which has put him at the top of the pts list.
He has been raised around small children, and multiple animals. He is good with cats, rabbits, birds and dogs of all sizes. He displays herding instincts with cattle, and has a good work drive. He does well with horses and other livestock as well. He walks great on a leash, knows basic obedience commands.
He was born 4/1/12, he was chosen from his litter because he was the most laid back. He isn't registered, but his owner is going to try get his pedigree.
He is a pretty big dog!
He is leery of new people, and I think this might be partly from what he has been through.
He had become protective of his female owner and children after the husband became abusive, and also mistreated the dog. He will guard his female owner against new men, he would bark at them. But once he realized they were not going to hurt her, he would relax and be fine with them.
We have a 14 yr old male volunteer that Duke absolutely loves. With him he relaxes and you can see his true personality.
