Pet of the Week

-

Dashing through the big yard is Duke, the ACSKC’s 4-year-old bloodhound. Clocking in at 134 pounds, this boy is extra large and extra sweet. And so handsome, too, he could be cast in the live action remake of “The Fox and The Hound.”

As a natural-born sniffer, Duke roams every inch of the big yard to take in all the smells. But for all his lumbering, this guy’s got some spunk to him, as he has been known to bound across the grass for long stretches. We love to watch his ears flap in his wake!

Car rides also get Duke’s ears waving in the wind. He’s happy to hop in the back seat and go for a drive, especially if it means stopping at his favorite spot, Dunkin’ Donuts.

Duke does the classic bloodhound howl from time to time, and we can hear him no matter where we are in the shelter. So, no apartments or townhomes for his big guy — not if you want your neighbors to like you. Duke’s ideal home will have the space to stretch his long legs and lots of things to sniff.

Duke is house-trained, would prefer to be the only dog in the home, and would do best with kids over 12 years of age.

Bring Duke home this holiday season by dashing over to kenthumane.org to submit an applicatio­n. Due to COVID-19 precaution­s, the Animal Care Shelter for Kent County is open by appointmen­t only. Once your applicatio­n is approved, we will set up an appointmen­t with you.
