Duke is the pet of the week

Hi my name is Duke! Photo provided

Hi my name is Duke! I am a 3-4 year old Texan boy although I am pretty glad to be in Vermont though, as my final days in Texas were not so wonderful. Long story short, I had gotten my leg caught in a trap and chewed my leg off to save myself! My owner didn’t really pay much attention to my injury, so when this lady saw me, she took me straight to the vet.

I am just a loveable guy who is in search of his forever home! I am very loveable and just adore cuddling; I would be the perfect lap dog for cold, stormy nights. I am unsure how I would be with another dog in the home. I have had a couple introductions here at the shelter that have not went the best, but I am still willing to try meeting other dogs!

I am not going to be cat friendly, I just can’t do it; they are strange. I love walks, but please be patient with me as I am still learning how to get around with my 3 legs. I sometimes fall while going potty or just if I get too excited. I would be fine with kids that are experienced with dogs, so probably 6+ to play it safe. My adoption fee has been paid for already by a loving donor.


Please come meet me Wed. – Sat. from 12 – 4:30 p.m. at the Springfield Humane Society at 401 Skitchewaug Trail or by calling 802-885-3997
