born ~September 2018

25 lbs.

Crate Trained!!!


“When the bottom falls out and disappointments come, you will learn what you believe, what you love, and what you treasure.” – Ligon Duncan

Meet Duncan! This happy little love bug is 4 years old and weighs in at 25 pounds. In other words, he is the perfect sized lap dog, and he aims to live up to that!

Housebreaking, Crate-Training, and Commands

Duncan is both housebroken and crate-trained! He’s the type of dog that enjoys the safety and comfort of his crate — he sleeps in his crate soundly at night and during the day, he will happily choose to nap in there with the door open. Duncan also has a few tricks up his little sleeve, namely “sit,” “leave it,” and “lay down.” One area that Duncan is working on is finding his “off” button when he feels inspired to bark, such as when people or dogs pass by the window. His foster parents are teaching him “all done!” to let him know when it’s time to be quiet. Keep up the good work, Duncan! 

Behavior around other Dogs, Cats, and Kids

Duncan has had a 40-pound foster dog sibling in the past and those two had really buddied up. They were playful and friendly and after they’d had some fun, they’d always curl up and nap together. Duncan is a little wary of new dogs and will bark a little at first, but as soon as they have a chance to meet, he has found a new friend! Cats, on the other hand, are something to be marveled at and Duncan was very curious about his prior foster kitty sibling. He even wanted to cuddle with her. Duncan would do well in a home with a dog-friendly cat. Duncan does not currently live with children but he has proven to do well with them in the past.

Behavior around People

Duncan is a BIG fan of people. There is almost nothing he likes more than being on the receiving end of a belly rub or a cuddle session. He may come off a little shy at first, but Duncan warms up very fast. He seems to have the perfect mixture of being affectionate while not being needy or demanding about it.

Exercise Needs

Duncan does not require a lot of exercise. He might enjoy short walks or even trips to the dog park, but he doesn’t need to be worn out. He’d really rather exert his energy into crawling into your lap. 

According to his foster parents, Duncan’s favorite activities are cuddles, pets, food, napping, walks, and playing, in that order! Colder weather is coming, and we have the cutest little lap-warmer on the market. Is Duncan the perfect fit for your family? Contact us today!
