About Deuce

“Hi, I’m Deuce. Contrary to my name, I’m house trained! I’m a handsome, shy two year old black lab x. I take a little time to warm up to new humans but once I do, I never want to leave your side. I love napping in the sunshine and going for walks. Hold on tight though! I’m a puller, I get really excited when I see squirrels, other dogs and horses, I just want to say hi! My foster mom likes to keep me focused with my food.

Speaking of food, I love it! I look for it all the time. Except I have allergies and can get sick and very itchy if I eat anything but my special food. My foster mom tries to trick me into my crate by feeding me in there because she knows I don’t like it very much, but I’m on to her! It makes me feel trapped and lonely so I’d rather be with you, or even just contained to a room when your gone. I never have accidents in the house and I have never chewed or ruined anything! I love to sleep, on the couch, on my bed, on the floor… anywhere really!

Sometimes when I hear noises outside, I like to make noise back to let anyone out there know I’m here. My foster mom tells me I have a beautiful deep, loud voice. I don’t show it off very often but sometimes I have use it in the middle of the night when I hear the wind or the deer in the yard.

My human 2.5 year old twin foster sisters are alright. We even play sometimes! I go and lay down when I’ve had enough of them. I don’t feel the need to use my voice to tell them I’m done at all. Right now I don’t live with another dog brother or sister but I’m sure with a slow introduction, I would  get along with another dog friend just fine. I love to chase small things, so my perfect home would likely have no feline friends.

Also one of my special tricks is that I am a professional high jumper! I can easily jump the fence around my foster moms dog run and it’s almost 5 feet tall!!! I can jump over many things and once I even jumped right on the kitchen counter because my food was up there and I was getting very hungry for it!

When you first meet me I will seem very high energy, especially on a leash because it makes me very excitable. I’m so happy when I’m outside! But I’m not 100% sure of my new name yet so I forget to come back when you call me. I like to play the game where you call my name and I run around and bark! I think it’s the best, but my foster mom says I need to work on my “recall”…. Whatever that is. Anyways, I’m always ready to play, smell and chase things outside but once I’m inside I am calm, caring and lovable!

I’m the best of both worlds! I can’t wait to meet you! I hope we are the perfect fit.” – xo, Deuce
