From the Foster:         

I'm Duke! I'm a Boxer/Shepard mix and I'm about 4 years old. When we first meet, I might be a little shy, but I'll quickly roll on my back for some belly rubs or offer you my paw for a shake. 
Once we're friends, I'll greet you (after a day at work or if you've just stepped out) with my excited noise, which sounds a lot like Chewbacca from Star Wars! I love to play fetch and zoom around, but I tire after a few rounds and then I'll fall asleep on the couch (usually lying upside down on my back with my legs in the air).
When I want to snuggle, I will scoot my backside as close as I can get to you, and I have no problem nudging you with my nose if you stop petting me. I also like to sometimes have some quiet time in my kennel. I'm completely potty trained and am left out during the day. 
My people say that I'm a great dog. I'm very sweet and gentle, but would probably do best in a home without little kids - they can be a little wild and unpredictable, and makes me a little nervous. I love playing with other dogs, and prefer dogs that are smaller than me. I'm pretty submissive, but don't always like big, dominant dogs who play too rough. I am a big, lovable goof, and can't wait to find my perfect forever home!
