***Duke is currently in foster in the New Jersey and surrounding areas. If interested in adopting Duke, please submit an application at socorescue.com. If selected to adopt Duke, one of our team members will be in touch.

Duke maybe big, but he is a gentle giant!  In his foster home, he has been a perfect gentleman.  He is taking care of business outside and sleeping soundly in his crate.  He is friendly meeting all people and dogs.  Although he is big, he does not pull when on leash and is responds to commands.  Duke likes to go for walks, play fetch and displays moderate energy level chilling on the couch much of the time. His playful and friendly personality makes him a great candidate as a family companion.  (caution with children just due to his size).  Duke also has a desire to play with other dogs and we'll require a "meet-and-greet" with any other dogs that he may share a home with. Duke has not been cat tested.

When a stray big, @ 70lbs bulldog is standing in your yard and just starring at you, it can be quite unnerving, especially when you don't know what that dog's intentions are. But lucky for the man who found himself in such a situation after Duke appeared in his yard, Duke only wanted to make a friend and, hopefully, be rewarded with something to eat and drink. Even better for Duke, the young man did much more than offer him food and water, he even gave Duke temporary shelter so we could prepare him for adoption.

Duke has now been neutered, received an update on all of his annual vaccinations, de-wormings and kept on his monthly preventatives. He recently tested negative for heartworms as well. His adopter should be prepared to offer additional house and leash training.

To apply for the adoption of Duke, please submit an application at socorescue.com. There's no need to register or login on our site and inquiries through other adoption sites or phone calls are not consider as an application. If chosen to adopt Duke, you'll be contacted by a SoCo team member ASAP.
