Australian Shepherd / Irish Setter
Age: Young Adult

Special Needs. Apply only if you feel you qualify: Duke was nearly catatonic in fear when we rescued him from an abusive home. He has since come around to his affectionate, quiet, gentle self but some things scare him: going into a car, the leash, yelling. This very sweet submissive boy is about 5 years old, 55 pounds, loves to be pet, loves to sun himself on the porch and gather his toys into his open crate. A sharp word or an over eager dog pal will terrify him and he will withdraw in fear. There is not a mean bone in his body though. No kids under age 15 since noise and lots of activity will scare him. Duke needs kind and patient people who are at home to give him lots of affection which he reciprocates. Duke is still afraid of the leash so he absolutely needs a fenced yard to romp in; this fear may abate over time. Duke is heartworm positive and has 2 shots left in his fast kill treatment. We are covering that cost. See his video https://youtu.be/0tp1tk2kYcw Apply on www.crisisdogsnc.org Vet reference and virtual home visit required. We will then put you in touch with his foster mom for more details.
