Duke is such a sweet boy, he loves to love you, be with you and cuddle. He is house trained up to date on everything and neutered. He comes when hes called and is quiet in the house. .When he does make friends he plays rough and hard which is typical of his mix. So an elderly dog would not suit Duke as a home companion. His calm and loving demeanor with people would be the perfect companion dog for someone who needs companionship.He truly is a darling boy.
