If you are looking for a dancing partner, Duska can be your boogie boy! This very playful pup will dance when he wants to play with you, and when it's time to eat, he dances around and around while you're fixing his food. So cute! He'll also climb up on you for a hug, hoping you'll give him back and belly rubs, and he'll try to snuggle in your lap to give you kisses. He just wants attention - and loving.

Now in foster care, Duska is also very playful and friendly with his foster mom's 2- and 4-year-old female Huskies, jumping around and running with them. He wagged his tail when he saw her baby granddaughter, wanting to come closer. And he hasn't been interested in her cat, just looking at him, then turning away. He's leash-walking well, strolling next to his walker and not pulling much. At home, he is house-trained, letting it be known when he needs to go potty outdoors. And he goes in his crate at bedtime, sleeping there nicely when his fosters are away.

This eager-to-please boy will love a home with a parent who can keep him active with playtime and walks. He is heartworm positive, but all that means is that he will need a few months rest after treatment at APA!'s expense, and then he will be good to boogie down! And he'll have a lot of fun playing with kids. Come meet this cute boy. He'll dance home with you!
