From Young At Heart Pet Rescue, Palatine, IL:
Hi there! I’m Duke, and I’m one handsome guy! I’m a 10 to 12-year-old lab mix with a very sweet disposition and gentle demeanor. My owner passed away and like many of my senior friends in the same situation, I ended up at a noisy rural pound. Young at Heart Pet Rescue saved me from being euthanized, and I’m ready to begin the next part of my life!
Now some people don’t know that adopting a senior pet is one of the most rewarding things a person can do. And I am just the guy to prove that to you! I’m a quiet boy, and I ride very nicely in the car. I take treats very gently, am good on a leash and love to go for walks! I am completely housebroken and trustworthy in the house. I get along well with other big dogs like me, though I need to be fed separately since I’m protective of my food bowl around other dogs. I am not a fan of small dogs, but I do just fine with my feline friends.
