Meet The Duke!!  He's like the original... he's got True Grit!!

Hey Pilgrim... You can be sure this Duke has plenty of "grit" left!!

When 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 virtually nonexistent.

Duke 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 and surrounding states.

The Sponsor A Senior program helps Seniors by raising funds for their rescue programs. This helps offset some of the additional costs that come with caring for a senior (diet, medications, supplements, etc.). Please read more about this program on the Sponsor A Senior page.
