Canyon County Pet of the Week: Duke the pointer

October 15, 2013 

Duke, 8, is a purebred German shorthaired pointer that has a liver/white tick coat and weighs 45 pounds.

Duke is great with kids. He is incredibly even-tempered and calm. Not only that, age is just a number with Duke. He loves to go for walks, car rides and swim. Duke is house-trained and can be left alone with no problem.

He knows the basic commands of sit, stay, down and come. At day’s end his favorite place to crash is either the couch, his dog bed, or a big soft blanket that he can scrunch up and rearrange.

Duke has been great with other dogs at the shelter, but please, no kitties or livestock for this fellow. Duke is neutered, microchipped and current on all vaccines.

Duke is in kennel number 22 at the Canyon County Animal Shelter at 5801 Graye Lane in Caldwell. The hours of operation are Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
