Duke wandered up to a Texaco truck stop terminal in downtown Houston. He had a significant bite wound on the left side and the top of his neck. It looked like perhaps a big dog had grabbed him. He was not wearing a collar and ID tag and he did not have a microchip. Duke came to Emmy's Hope Rescue in June 2020.
Duke is a sweet, happy-go-lucky and affectionate little dog with people, but he is hesitant and untrusting of dogs he doesn’t know. He prefers small, female dogs and tends to get defensive with males, particularly if they are big. After he warms up, and feels comfortable, he's ready to run and play. Duke is very curious and has a high energy level. He will do best with an active family that’s experienced with energetic dogs.
Estimated birth date: June 2019
Approximate weight: 11 lbs.
