Duncan is a special young boy who has so much to give. He has been let down in the past and it takes him time to trust people. But once you get to know him he will be your best friend. He has formed a stronger bond with some of our male volunteers and seems to respond better to commands.
Please note that applicants who wish to adopt Duncan will have to be slowly introduced to him over a few meetings to gain his trust.
He loves his walkies and is great to walk on the lead. Since Duncan has been at Homeless Hounds our volunteers have worked closely with him to teach him how to walk nicely. He needs lots of praise when he has been a good boy, especially when smaller dogs bark at him and he doesn’t react.
Duncan has very little previous training, he appears to know some commands – sit and lie down and he takes a treat nicely – but he needs work on his giddy silliness.
Duncan deserves a quiet household with a single person who can give him all the love and attention he deserves. He can’t be rehomed with children and he will need to be the only pet. He finds going to the vets very stressful and will become agitated, for this reason he has to be muzzled.
Duncan can occasionally get grumpy when he isn’t getting his own way and try to challenge you. He will need a firm but fair approach to his training.
To adopt Duncan, please complete our adoption application form. We welcome applications from across Lancashire but unfortunately we are unable to consider applications from further afield. Homeless Hounds cannot rehome dogs to families with children under the age of 5. Home check and adoption donation applies.
