The Duke of ARL

If Rex was human, he would be the courageous leader of an army going into to war knowing full well that his group was the underdog, but standing tall to do what needed to be done.

Okay, maybe that's a little far fetched.  But I will say, Rex is confident by nature and people enjoy being around him.  I can totally see him as a therapy dog some day.

I've seen many sides of Rex.  A couple weeks back he was at his most vulnerable state.  He wasn't feeling well and couldn't even walk on his own.  The vet wasn't exactly sure what had occured, but several times a day the staff would carry him into the yard for some fresh air.  He receive much TLC for about four days, then all of a sudden there he was walking once again.  During that time when we cared so much for him, thinking he might be on death's door, you could see in his eyes how much he appreciated the help and he grew a strong bond with each and every one of us.

Now he's happy & strong and ready to move on and grow a bond with a special person or family out there that is worthy of this fantastic gentleman.
