Most of us probably have met or know remarkable humans who stare adversity in the face and overcome obstacles, often with a smile on their face. Deuce is the canine version of this model of living.

Born with a cleft foot, we're not sure if Deuce has been given a fair chance in life to be happy. We don't know a lot about his background and, upon arrival, wondered about it. However, now that he's settled into the swing of things with his new routine, he seems to be really coming out of his shell and shining bright! Staff and volunteers are daily being captivated by the woo of his innocent enthusiasm and vigor for life. So much so that it's natural to be inspired by his ability to move forward and embrace new opportunities with zest --- and there's no reason to think he wouldn't apply this attitude in a new home!

Deuce walks well on a leash, bonds well with humans, enjoys adventures on our trail and in the local stream (check out his video!), and also likes to lounge around indoors on a bed we sometimes set-up for him in our office. His perfect home has no small children (namely because he's a big, happy fella and might accidentally knock a small human over!), has a semi-active lifestyle (there's no self-pity with this guy --- he beats most of our staff and volunteers running up hills!), and has an excess of love for his parched heart to soak in. Currently, we don't have enough information about how well socialized he is with other dogs, so a second dog is possible on a case-by-case basis.
