We were incredibly lucky to be the magic number three home for our boy Luke.  Luke’s Mom was the original rescue, and she was at the time, expecting what would be 12 puppies.

Luke was originally placed with a family, and although there was tremendous love for him, it was just not the right fit. He next went to a wonderful foster family who was lovely enough to give him a great home until his forever family was found.

That was us!


Luke has been with us for a couple months now. He is full of puppy play and puppy mischief, and gets to go to the dog park almost every day to play with his buddies, while running off his exuberant energy.

His funniest traits? He howls to the Sonicare toothbrush, he prefers (at 75 lbs) to sleep on the pillows above our heads, he counter surfs faster than any dog I have ever known, and he loses his mind over tennis balls, birds and squirrels…



We love him so much.







Hey there!  Luke (#3003) here.  I was one of 12 (yes, 12!) puppies born to Kennedy on January 29, 2018.  I was conceived in China, but I’m an all-American boy.  Even though I look like a handsome adult guy, I am still a puppy and really want to learn to be the best boy ever.

I’ve learned very quickly that if I want to get loves, I have to sit patiently.  Jumping up and “mouthing” just don’t get me the attention I desire.  I have energy, but not a horrible amount.  My foster dad walks me five miles a day.  I tussle with my foster sister, Molly.  Although she sounds like Cujo, she’s really just having fun.  I had never seen a cat before, but my foster feline adores me.  I’m very gentle with her.  In fact, about an hour after my arrival we were found napping together upstairs (a first for her… she usually ignores dogs).

I am a very handsome fellow.  My foster mom says I look like a lion.  This is hard to believe, but I am completely potty-trained.  I wouldn’t even think of going in the house.  I pretty much poop and pee on command – OUTSIDE.  I like spending time in my crate, but would much rather be with my family… wherever they are. I’d love to find my own person or family who has experience in guiding a young dog in to adulthood.  I’m young, healthy and strong… and need someone to teach me everything I need to know about being a “good boy”.

Note from Luke’s foster parents:  This guy is nothing short of gorgeous and sweet.  He so wants to please his people… he just needs firm guidance and being an only dog in a quiet home wouldn’t hurt (so he can really focus on what he needs to learn).  We received advice from GBR’s behavior specialist and Luke has responded very well.  He quickly learned that arms crossed in front of a person means, “sit and stay”.  He’s so proud of his accomplishments and wants to continue to learn.

Luke was adopted on July 7, 2019
