ON HAND: Duke helps out with the other rescue dogs.
FOUND in a rescue home in France, Duke has been living with his owner Susan for eight years. He quickly adapted to his new life in the country, with freedom to roam around the large garden, a comfortable home and a kind family.
Then over the years Susan adopted three other rescue dogs, so Duke now has a fur family of his own to care for. And he does: he is the leader without any doubt, guiding the others and helping with the training. Hard to believe, but true!
Recently, Duke’s owner had to travel for a couple of weeks and found her house-sitter through HouseSit Match.com. She was concerned about leaving because one of the dogs was only recently rescued and even after two months she was still finding it difficult to act on Susan’s commands. The sitter and owner spent two whole days together with the dogs before Susan left for her trip.
When in the first couple of days the sitter, an experienced dog handler, took time trying to get Perle, the newest member of the family, to come in the house at night, Duke would sometimes leave his bed and literally round up Perle chasing her into the house. So Duke became the sitter’s best friend. Teamwork!
