10/16/18 FOSTER UPDATE: We cannot say enough good things about this sweet boy! He loves playing with his foster brother and is a big fan of naps when he’s tired from playing. Deuce’s favorite napping position is on his back with his legs in the air, which also perfectly describes his personality- he’s a big goof. Deuce is very silly and often provides a lot of laughs simply by just looking at him. He truly is such a sweet dog and wants to please very badly. While staying with us he has been working on basic commands (he’s gotten the hang of sit really well and now thinks that every time he sits he should get a treat!). Deuce still has a long way to go with his commands but he is very eager to please, so patience is key because he doesn’t always understand what is being asked of him. Deuce does great in a house with another dog because he LOVES to play! But I also think Deuce would do fine in a house by himself (with lots of play time, and toys of course!) because he also loves to have a lot of attention. While Deuce was with us we took him to the dog park for the first time and I think it was his new favorite thing, so a family that could take him to the dog park would be great!
Overall Deuce is a really great dog and would make any family happy, they just need to have patience and a sense of humor with his sometimes goofy ways 🙂

Gorgeous 1.5-year-old Deuce is another victim of a couple’s separation, and no one wanted to keep him. He arrived with no vetting information, so we made sure he was neutered and updated on his medical care. The vet’s staff made sure we knew that Deuce is an awesome dog; very sweet, yet a strong dog and will require basic obedience and consistent leadership. Like so many dogs that arrive in our care, we can’t expect a dog to know appropriate manners if no one has taught him what is expected. Will believe he will be very receptive to guidance and will be happiest when he has the chance to show his family what a good boy he can be. He did arrive with an abrasion on his head and is being treated with a special ointment to help it heal. Our presumption is that is former family did not devote enough time to him, and the result is Deuce is now in our care, and we are delighted to be able to help him find a new home that understands what it means when we say a pet is indeed FAMILY.
