PostSubject: Duke - DDB/DDB x GD   Mon Apr 11, 2011 3:45 pm

As some of you may know Duke was looking for a new home so he has come to us & the wonderful Janice has taken him under her wing, so Duke is now in foster in the Essex area.

Duke is believed to be a DDB but possibly a DDB x Great Dane & he will be 3 in October.

Duke can be quite timid, he is very comfortable with people he knows both children & adults, but can be very unsure of men. He has never displayed any kind of aggression, but his nerveousness can be off putting to some people.

Duke has lived happily with a cat, he is fantastic with other dogs both small & large, Duke is not distructive & he is happy to be left alone for reasonable periods of time.

Duke is neutered, vaccinated & microchipped







thanks Janice not worthy

Never been found guilty of being 'wonderful' - shifty/dodgey etc. errr yeah lol!

Soooo....

I took Diva with me when I picked Duke up, Charlotte brought him out of the house to meet her and he was very polite and gentle. We went into the house and out to the garden, where both dogs turned into puppies, he wasn't forceful, possessive or even heavy pawed with her - she did all the 'play' growling, which I daresay he'll learn before he leaves me - lol.

Duke was great on the way home, he spent most of the time looking out of the window. I'd left Dave at my Mum's so that he and Duke could meet before I took him home to meet my other two females. Dave's been a bit wary of bigger dogs after a bit of a run in with one and I didn't want him to get bolshy cos he felt a bit intimidated by Duke's size. But Duke obviously doesn't give out any negative vibes and the following pictures were taken within an hour of him meeting Dave and the two girls.

I fed Duke with the others, but he wasn't very keen, not even with the sardines in oil - lol He ate about half of his dinner, but only after I sprinkled grated cheese on top - although he did eat some treats afterwards. He's been going in and out of the garden, but only because he's too unsure of his standing with the others, so he's laying in the kitchen, too shy to come in the room where we all are - I do call him in, but he only stays for a few minutes before going out again. I'm hoping he'll come in on his own steam later.

So all in all Duke is doing well. He does feel lost, but I suppose that's to be expected - at least his tail is wagging and although shy, he's interacting well with the others. He isn't overly confident and I didn't want to stress him out any further, so I'm sleeping downstairs tonight, just to give him a bit of company.

Which has worked ok because he came into the lounge at about 3.35am and is now blowing zzzzz's as I type. This is the first time he's slept so he is relaxing a bit woohoo

P.S. Have got to say that Duke is a credit to Charlotte - a well mannered, gentle giant.

Duke's former owner Charlotte is really upset over having to give him up, and I'd be equally upset if I were in the same position.

He is well mannered, aware of his size, which, as you all know is a bloody rare trait in a large breed - lol Charlootte said he had helped to cure lots children who were fearful of dogs, and I can well believe it after seeing him today with the little girl who lives across the road, as she walked towards him - he actually sat down and waited for her to approach him. No attempt to lick, paw her or even stand up. Dave can only keep still for 30 seconds before he's compelled to slobber over a child and Diva immediately goes straight in for the french Boxer kiss.
I left him with two of my dogs for just over an hour today with no problems. He has eaten today, he has complete dog meal biscuit things in the morning and tinned meat and biscuits in the evening. He isn't a big eater and he's not food orientated, he takes treats very gently and if a treat is on the larger side , he opens his mouth and you have to throw it in - lol

His recall is excellent and he'll chase a ball, bring it back and drop it on command. Diva likes to chase a ball, so I took two with me. When one went missing, (as per usual), Duke quite happily shared the other one with Diva, showing no animosity or possession issues.

I have so many great pictures of him, I don't know what to post, so I'll have to put some together.



P.S. I don't know why I'm saying nice fings about this boy......

because his MINE......................

tears You have bought a tear to my eye Charlotte, I can only imagine the pain you are feeling & I know how much you love Duke.

I think you are very brave to even come on here right now, as you can see Janice is taking good care of him but I really don't think he will be waiting very long for his new family as everyone that see's his photos is falling head over heals in love with him.

You did a great job with this big boy & you should be proud hug

and was also timid around men but loved other dogs,i'm very interested in adopting Duke and am just
working on the other half,that's if he hasn't got a home lined up already?

Can't add to that love

So here's another Duke overload....







Great with females...






Great with males...








Can't fault him no1

Charlotte, it's because you, Chloe and Oliver have put so much into his care and upbringing that he'll make any family proud. So when you do get a bit low thinking about him remember you couldn't have given him a better gift, you really have done him proud


hugs

Bloomin eck guys, im already feeling tearful waiting to take Layla the vets, then i read them posts and now im all blurry eyed. What Janice wrote was lovely, and Charlotte, well that was equally lovely.
I cant add to anything that was said, other than he is a handsome, gorgeous lad and he'll be in that forever home very soon, how could anyone resist.. hearts

Tears here as well it is heartbreaking that an owner that truly loves her dog can't keep it Charlotte I really hope you stay on the forum for a very long time it is a pleasure to know someone that has done everything they can for their canine companion, I hope that you can see from Janice's photos that he is at least having a good time, it is obvious to see the work you have put into Duke he is a credit to you, I so wish others would put in half the time you obviously have

Great photos Janice and your dogs are also a credit to you

Strange there is so much I wanted to say when I started this post but words just do not seem to come to me at the moment through the tears my heart breaks for your family Charlotte

Good evening all.....

I have to admit that it is really hard to see him on here & i want to cry each time but i am so pleased that he is having a blast with all the dogs in his foster home.
Especially Diva, i would be very sure that Duke is in love already....love1

U as a network have made this soooo much easier & infact i find it quite comforting to see all the support post left by u all, so thank you.

Anyway i do so hope that all of the dogs in foster & rescue find there forever homes soon as every being deserves a home & shouldnt be denied the love of a family.

There is gold at the end of the rainbow, light at the end of a tunnel & a home for every pooch rainbow1


love love love from me & my children...
