The saddest update has been made about a battered pit bull who was discovered on a woman’s porch in Georgia after Hurricane Irma blew through the area. The dog, named “Duncan,” was just adopted last week – on Tuesday, LifeLine Animal Project had made a special announcement about the dog who just wanted to be loved:
Duncan came into our care with scars and wounds all over his body. We have no idea what happened in his past, but we do know it wasn’t good. The minute we laid eyes on his precious face, we knew he was special.
We are so happy to share that today Duncan found his people! Thanks to your support, Duncan will live in a family home, where he will spend his nights snuggling in the bed and his days giving lots of big slobbery kisses. We couldn’t be happier for this sweet boy!
A few short days later, his new family let Duncan’s fans know that the lovable dog had died. In an update to GoFundMe, Duncan’s people wrote:
Duncan contracted a bacterial infection as a result of his many bite wounds prior to his time in the shelter, and unfortunately this infection overtook him in the aftermath of his neutering and move to our home. He received wonderful care and attention from BluePearl Veterinary Partners – Westside. My boyfriend and I were with him, snuggled up in his bed, as he crossed the rainbow bridge late on Sept. 29th.
He knew love, kindness, and safety, if only for a short time.
We are so grateful for the time we had with Duncan, and for the friends he made at LifeLine Animal Project and around the country. We believe the best way to honor his memory is to open our home to another sweet doggie in need. Your donations to Duncan’s veterinary care costs will make that possible for us.
