Well howdy there basset pardners! My name is Duke, and I am a handsome 10-year old gentleman looking for a quiet forever home. Like my namesake John Wayne, I am sturdy and loyal, and I will be a great addition to your home! But a little bit like his character Rooster Cogburn in True Grit, I have developed some traits that some people might refer to as a little crotchety. But in a charming way!
I lived most of my life with my previous family. I’m a good boy and I love snuggling and being part of the family. Over the years though, they added a mini-human and other dogs, and that was hard for me because it meant a lot of noise, a lot of other creatures approaching my food, and a lot of being startled out of my sound naps. Sometimes that would make me feel cornered and I would snap at whatever had gotten too close. Together we decided it would be best if I could live in a quieter home without young children. That way, I can focus my energy on snuggling with you, my power naps, and our daily walks! I have a little bit of arthritis, but I still like going for walks and I am good on a leash. I’m also totally house-trained, so once I get the lay of the land at your place, no need to worry about that!
What do you think? Is your home missing the love of a hound? Does a handsome senior gentle-hound sound like just what you’ve been looking for? Call BHRSC and let’s meet soon!
