Duke: never too old for love

DukeDuke, a 9-year-old yellow Lab, was transferred to the Dumb Friends League for medical care by one of our shelter partners in northern Colorado. He had been found wandering the streets and was severely underweight, in addition to having serious dental disease.

When he arrived at our shelter, Duke weighed just 69 pounds, and you could count every rib in his skinny body. After weeks on a special diet, as well as a dental cleaning and tooth extraction, Duke had gained weight and was ready for adoption. That’s when Cami and Steve R. spotted him on our website. They were looking for a puppy, but when they saw that an older dog needed a home, they rushed to our shelter to meet Duke. It was love at first sight, so they adopted him on the spot.
