Duke, He Is Blind And He Is PERFECT! Could You Love Him? – Steve Caporizzo’s Pet Connection

If you missed Pet Connection Today on the Sean and Richie Show, here is another chance for you to take a look at a couple of great pets up for adoption. Let’s take a look at the pets featured today. Tune in every Thursday at 7:20 a.m. to hear the stories of two incredible (and adoptable!) pets.

Pet Connection – DUKE

Duke: Duke is a 7 year old Golden Retriever and Cocker Spaniel mix. He’s loyal, affectionate, calm, and very smart! He is blind, but he seems to have excellent hearing and sense of smell. He quickly assesses his surroundings, and he responds to commands such as “step up”, “step down”, and “careful” so it’s not too difficult for him to get around. He usually walks slowly around the house, so if he bumps into anything it’s very gentle and he doesn’t seem to mind. Since he needs his person to show him the way at first, he’s very attentive to his person’s voice. He quickly attaches to his people, and he has a ton of love to give! He also knows basic commands such as “sit” and “lay down”. He would make an excellent therapy dog. Duke is house and crate trained, but we haven’t kept him in the crate much because he seems comfortable in the house without it, and he’s so well-behaved. He has spent several hours a day without someone in the home, and he seems perfectly content to just snooze on the couch or floor near the bed to wait for his person’s arrival back home. He’s great on a leash and loves to go for walks. Although Duke can be described as more of a mellow and mature dog, you can tell he loves to be outside because when he’s walking outside his tail starts wildly wagging, he gets that goofy doggy smile, and he seems to get more of a pep in his step. He really does have some younger dog spirit in him! He has been a pleasure to have in our foster home. He’s great around other dogs and kids, and he doesn’t really pay much attention to cats. He’s a ready made wonderful dog with none of the challenging puppy issues to deal with.
