The one-year-old Caucasian shepherd, one of the world’s largest breeds, is looking for a new home in Manchester.
Duncan currently resides in Denton’s Dogs Trust Manchester – but is hoping to find a new home to adjust to.
He has been described as a “very friendly boy” who likes to play and eat “tasty treats”.
A Dog Trust spokesman said: “He is a very playful boy and likes to play tug of war.
“He also loves his food and will do anything to make it delicious.
“He especially likes brushing, and loves people and gets a lot of fuss and attention.”
Beginning in the Caucasus region, which includes Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan, Caucasian shepherds were bred as cattle guard dogs, protecting sheep from predators such as wolves, bears and wolves.
This breed, which can grow up to 75 cm long and weigh about 50 kg, is one of the 10 largest breeds in the world, along with Newfoundland, St. Bernard and Irish Wolfhounds.
Due to its large size, Duncan needs experienced owners to care for large dogs.
He suggests he let two people walk because he can be a ‘handful’, especially when he sees another dog he wants to play with.

He can either get very excited and vocal or sit up and refuse to move – and picking him up and moving him again can be a lot of work.
Duncan’s new home also has special needs because it needs plenty of space to roam and a six-foot fenced garden.
He does not understand the stairs at all, so it is important that he can only stay on the ground floor.
But he has the ability to be with another medium or large dog as long as he is very playful and tolerant.
