Hi everyone! My name is Duke. I'm a black and tan dachshund who is, they say, about 7-8 years old. Not a precocious puppy, but not a senior, so they tell me I'm the perfect age! I have to say that I'm the perfect dog, period! My favorite past time is hunting pesky creatures my foster mom calls lizards. I circle the house until I spot one, and then I let the entire neighborhood know that they are now safe- that I've protected them, once again, from the horror that is a lizard. When there's a shortage of lizards (and there are, after I get done with 'em) I start after frogs or any other creepy-crawly that dares to set foot or scale in *my* yard.
I have several 4 legged foster brothers and sisters in my foster home. They're ok, as long as they don't try to steal my food or treats. There is a 2-legged foster brother in my house. I think he's ok too, as long as he doesn't try to ride me, pull my tail, my ears, or get in my face. He's a really respectful kid and I think he's ok. I do prefer my adult foster parents, though.
My foster mom says that I've been fixed, but no one ever told me I was broken! I've had all of my shots and don't have any nasty bugs in my heart. I know that's true, because my heart is just full of love! There's no room for anything else!
I am pretty reliable in the house, as far as pottying goes. I have had a few accidents, but my foster mom leaves me out in the kitchen at night and I do really try to hold it till the morning. I know all about sleeping in a crate. I see it as my 'den' and will go in if there's a comfy bed.
Hmm... more of my likes include:Going for walksBelly rubsBall-chasingAny sort of squeaky toysFoodHanging out on the couch watching TVLong walks on the beachRomantic (or not) DinnersGoing for car-ridesThe occasional hamburger from McDonaldsDid I mention food?
So, do you think I'd be a good fit in your family? If so, please fill out an application and ask my foster mom to let me go home with you. I'd be great in a home with a fenced yard, or in an apartment. I just want someone to love me for the rest of my life. Is that you?
