Happy Tails: Duke's Story

If you have a successful adoption or rescue story you'd like to share, we would love to hear it! Fill out and submit the online form, and it will be forwarded to shelter staff.


"We adopted Duke last summer; his previous owner had abandoned him.

"He is a big, black, happy boy who loves his new life as a ranch dog. He has the run of over 200 acres with his new best buddy, Zoe and loves chasing the cows (bad boy!), running alongside when we go out on the horses and taking a dip in every creek and tank we go by!

"He loves to lie by the campfire at night and, even though he is huge, he will always try to 'sneak' into our laps on lazy nights by the fire. He has really filled out and looks so handsome, people always ask what breed he is and I say that he is our 'pound puppy.'

"Someone left a real sweetheart, and that is our gain!"
