Meet Duke! Duke came from a high kill shelter where his owner who was dying from cancer surrendered his dog in hopes that he would be cared for. Duke's foster mom was told about his predicament when he was listed to be euthanized. The shelter told foster mom that Duke was 9 years old but we are thinking him to be 6-7 years old. He is super over weight at 160 lbs and with light exercise and a diet he is quickly shedding the pounds. Duke is heartworm positive and with his age is on the slow kill regimen that is easy on his heart and other body systems so he can slowly heal. This won't stop Duke from finding his amazing forever home! Duke loves to lounge on the couch and if he could get up on the bed he would likely lounge there too. He loves following his foster mom from room to room as she does things around the house. He seems to do well with other dogs (small, medium, and large) however he needs to be in a home with no cats or a home that keeps their cats separate. Duke has this sad puppy dog eyes that will really tug at your heart strings. He still is quite active and enjoys play time too! Don't wait.... This gentle giant needs to find his forever home where he will be loved and cherished just the way that he deserves.
