DUKE was surrendered to rescue when his elderly owners' when medical issue meant they couldn't care for him any longer.  

He is a professional snuggler & loves all humans, even very small ones!  Duke never lived with cats until he arrived in his foster home & wanted to chase them at first.  After a few weeks, he now respects them and can be around them without incident!   Dogs of all sizes are OK with this chill dude too.

Duke's hobbies include sleeping under covers, doing zoomies in the yard, watching TV & batting his BBE's (big brown eyes) at you for any snacks you may want to share. He is leash trained, housetrained &  does great on car rides, though he tries to call "shotgun" even if the copilot position is already human occupied.

Duke is okay with crates, but much prefers hanging around the house & would LOVE to snuggle with you in the "big bed" at night if allowed.    Duke would be suited to apartment living provided you agree to carrying HRH up & down any stairs.... as any nobility should be!
