Meet Duke

What a story Duke the Mastiff Puppy has and he is only 21 weeks old. This is what we know. Duke was purchased as a gift for someone but when he was delivered to the proud-puppy-owner-to-be, the landlord lost it and insisted that Duke be taken away. The people who purchased Duke were unable to keep him so they decided to this happy, playful, love-muffin, to the Vet to say a peaceful, forever, goodbye. On the way to the Vet’s they called a local rescue and the ‘Angel’ from the rescue met them at the Vet and gave Duke a second chance. Duke is meant to bring light into this world and we commend the other rescue for stepping in and saving his life. We are happy to have Little Big Dog Duke in our foster care now and have been evaluating him. Duke has a clumsy way about him that is sweet and endearing and will be part of his character forever. This was the info that we received regarding his slightly off, super cute gait. “The vet did an exam and concluded that he was born with what he called a small "glitch" in the signals between his brain and his legs. What that means to is that he is clumsy, much like a normal puppy is clumsy, but a bit more clumsy than normal. Vet felt he would NOT get worse but might always have a bit of a different looking walk. He can run and play, stairs are difficult for him, but he runs and plays like any puppy.” Duke will need a special family to make a commitment of love to him and he will love them back like no other would. Duke loves other dogs and everyone person that he meets. We will be doing some additional evaluating of this guy as well as teaching him some basic Big Dogs manners. We are hopeful that we can help Duke find a happy ending to the story that started out so bumpy for him. If you think you have a heart for Duke, let us know. We will be watching for your adoption application to come through!
