DU-DU - UK foster - year old full breed Croatian Shepherd male. Fostered in Spalding, Lincolnshire.

Du-Du was in a public shelter where the dogs have only 60 days to be adopted before they are killed.  Du-Du's death date was supposed to be 07.03.2014 but he was kept on in the hope he could find a home and is now in UK foster from 10.05.14, still looking for his family.



Du-Du may have escaped a miserable existence with starvation, cruelty and danger on the street when taken to the public shelter but life in the pound is horrific by any standard. The food is given very sparingly, fights are frequent and care and love are non-existent apart from when the volunteers visit to feed the dogs.  They get them ready to travel and promote them in the hope they are adopted. 



Du-Du is a medium sized dog. He is a friendly and loving boy who will make a wonderful family member and companion.  He is great with people and other dogs.  Please get in touch if you can offer Du-Du a home.



Du-Du's foster carer says -

"He's a very loving dog towards me and likes a lot of fuss and cuddles. Acts like a typical unruly teenager and would not stop jumping up and mouthing when he arrived, but not surprising given his bad start in life. The jumping up's already improved and I've taught him to sit for attention instead. He's not too keen on my other half but we're not pushing things in the hope this will improve soon. Not sure if it's all men yet or just my hubby(!) we're going to a dog training class next Wed so Dudu will meet lots of new people and dogs there. He does get on with my dogs but does try it on a bit - again a typical boisterous adolescent seeing how far he can go!
Not one wee or poo accident in the house, but anything left lying around is likely to fall prey to the jaws of Dudu! Daren't trust leaving him loose with the other dogs indoors yet as he'd be up to mischief I'm sure. No doubt he will get better with time as he settles down. Loves to play with toys and travels ok in the car (nice & quiet although a bit travel sick - again probably because he's not used to it). Didn't like the dog crate at first but now goes into it willingly. (it's his bed). Walks well on a lead."
