A 3-legged dog named Duke was recently dumped by his owners. The four-year-old dog is frightened at the Texas facility and he desperately needs a helping hand to make it out of the shelter alive.
According to the Houston Save Lives Is Our Mission Facebook page, Duke’s owners told the shelter that he was an “inside dog” but he is heartworm positive. His former owner also stated that a neighbor’s complaints about Duke’s barking led to a police complaint. Duke would not have heartworms and would not have persistently barked if he lived inside of a home. The Facebook admins wrote:
This precious boy was brought to shelter on May 12,2022 as owner surrender, why? VOCAL! 🤔 again and again LAZY EXCUSES from DUMB JERKS OWNERS! by the owner said DUKE bark too much and neighbors complained and call the Police! so he decided DUKE cannot longer stay! owner said he was an inside dog, but his heartworm test was positive!…seems he lied on everything! probably poor Duke was kept outside, and that’s why got the illness and why the neighbor complained!!..😠
The networking social media page added:
Duke was brought with a muzzle, not necessary, he was doing good and never aggressive!…not sure the crap owner used if says dog is friendly. He allowed the vet and techs to do shots and exam without any issues!!!
Will you please share Duke’s information and help him find a loving, committed owner who will treat him the way that he deserves to be treated? Find his adoption link here.
