All about Duke
Animal ID: 51393699

Duke is a 11 months old male Border Collie/Large Mixed Breed who weighs 26 pounds.

Age: 10 months
Weight: 26.1 kg

A little about me:
- limited history with cats - adopters should be aware we do not know what interactions looked like
- may do well with select dogs - adopters should be aware Duke has had negative experiences with some dogs and may display a fear response
- older kids/teens/adults okay - everyone is household should be able to understand body language
- high energy breed - adopter should be prepared to provide Duke with plenty of mental stimulation

My name is Duke, and boy have I had a ruff start in life! You might have noticed that I only have three legs, but I am healing well from my amputation surgery and it doesn't slow this busy boy down any! I would love if my new adopter could help me work on slowly increasing my exercise tolerance to make sure I don't injure myself as I learn to get around on three legs. It will also be extra important that you provide me with other ways of burning energy. Border collies have big brains you know, and things like puzzle feeders, scent training and slow feeders will be a great way to keep me entertained during and after my recovery. You should also know that I can be a bit nervous with new people, so family that can go slow, read my body language and support me as I become more confident would be ideal! If you think I could be your kind of pup, then please come say hi!

Note that many dogs do not reach full size until they are about a year and a half old. The weight listed here is the dog's current weight.
