Update 12/10/16: Adopted!!
Duke is a broken-hearted senior who came to the DeKalb County Animal Services just days after his owner died. Most likely he spent his entire life in one home – imagine the changes and loneliness he must be feeling? According to Urgent Animals at DeKalb County Animal Services, Duke is extremely friendly, gets along with other dogs and loves to take a nap next to any person he can find.
The shelter is the last place Duke should be, and it is hoped he can find a loving place to retire. As volunteers and staff are becoming better acquainted with this mellow old guy, they note he enjoys doing laps around the front office, loves being brushed and cordially greets his fellow senior office dog in the morning. Although he walks slowly because of arthritis, this kind old soul is being administered medication to make him more comfortable. That may need to continue when he finds his new home.
Share Duke’s story with friends, family and social media contacts. Senior dogs are the best. Sharing saves lives. If interested in meeting Duke, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

ADOPTED!Duke is a sweet senior pup who came to us after his owner passed away. The shelter is the last place this old man wants to be right now – he would love to find a place to retire. Duke enjoys doing laps around the front office, napping next to any person he can find, and being brushed. He greets his fellow senior office dog every morning and does fine with calm, laid back dogs that will mosey around with him. Duke moves pretty slow due to arthritis, but really enjoys exploring new places and finding new places to nap. We are keeping him comfortable with medication, which he may need to continue when he finds his human. Duke would love to leave the shelter behind. Can you help him find his retirement home?
