About Duke

Duke is a yellow Lab mix. He is a rescue adopted from Austin Pets Alive. He has a gentle nature and loves to swim. Duke gets along well with other dogs of all ages and sizes. Duke can be a little timid when meeting human strangers so it is best to let him approach you or a visitor rather than reaching out for him and definitely avoid hovering him when you first meet. Once he knows you belong there, he is fine and relaxed. He is fine when meeting dogs and loves making new friends.

Special Requirements

When first meeting a new person, it is best to let Duke approach with the person either standing or crouching turned to the side with arms relaxed at your side. It is helpful if the person has treats. :) He is reactive to people who look back into his eyes when first meeting. Sunglasses and hats seem to add to his reactivity. If he were at your home, it would be important not to allow visitors to "meet" him. He has not shown any aggression with dogs of any age, size, or sex. He loves his crate and does well in another room while inside the crate when company comes over.
