Pilgrim... You can be sure this Duke has plenty of "grit"
handsome Senior boy Duke was surrendered to a high kill shelter
by this owners they told the shelter staff he could not walk from
hip dysplasia. Knowing that hip dysplasia is uncommon in Dobermans
the rescue pulled him from the shelter and took him straight to
their surgical vet for diagnostics. No problem could be found
with his hips but he was infected with three different types of
intestinal worms for so long he was weak and his muscle tone was
has gained some much needed weight and is now quite mobile. He
is one of a group of Senior dogs who roam 6 fenced acres of the
rescue. His muscle tone is rebuilding although his rear legs are
still somewhat impaired and the vet has been unable to offer a
definitive diagnoses. Still, he is a happy boy who is enjoying
his new home and all the loving attention coming his way.
Special Needs if any: Needs
TLC and a watch on his leg issues.
Geographic Areas: California
