May 20, 2013 Happy Tales

Duke and familyDuke is a mixed breed dog that was surrendered to the Antioch shelter when his owner was deployed to Afghanistan. The soldier could not find anyone to take Duke. The dog is very friendly, has a great “smile”, knows a few commands, is a quick learner, and loves to please. Yet, nobody adopted him. He was sent to Tail Wag Inn on Bethel Island because he needed more time to find the right home. Duke went to adoptions with HARP for several months before a young woman who works at Pet Food Express fell in love with him. She introduced him to her family. They fostered Duke for two weeks and then decided he was just right for them.
