Luke - 4 years old
Meet Luke! At just 4 years old this gorgeous boy found himself surrendered to a pound when his family moved away. His ideal happily-ever-after home would include at least one other well-balanced dog since Luke seems to really enjoy having canine companions! He could also live quite peacefully with cats as he chooses to simply ignore them. He absolutely LOVES his walkies and though he may pull on leash out of excitement initially, once he gets going, he is a dream walking companion. Luke is well housetrained but he does have some tummy issues and is currently eating kibble for sensitive stomachs that seems to agree with him, where regular kibbles can cause diarrhea and ultimately accidents in the house. He seems to have no issue with most treats, and he loves fresh, dog-safe fruits and veggies for snacks. Luke's coat is incredible! He is not a heavy shedder but will require regular gentle brushing to keep him matt-free and looking his best. Being brushed isn't his favourite thing as we think it may have been done very aggressively in the past, but he is getting less nervous with it now as his foster has been working on this, and encouraging him with liver treats which seems to help! While we don't believe Luke is a big flight risk, he absolutely loves being outside in his yard, and therefore a home with a secured fence would provide a safe space to him to lounge and play. Though he does not show any signs of separation anxiety, Luke is at his happiest when he is near his humans, so a home where he is not left alone for extended periods of time would suit him just fine. While Luke would likely do well in a home with older children who can respect his space, we would not recommend him for a home with kids under the age of 12.
