Bait dogs are used to train fighting dogs. They are often tied up, with their mouths taped up too. What they endure is the saddest thing any animal could live through. No wonder Duke found comfort in that abandoned armchair.
Duke has been healing very well at the clinic, and he’s been making strides with his confidence too. His skin is beginning to clear up and his eyes are looking better. The volunteers are confident that he will make a FULL recovery. Once that happens, Duke will head to NYC where he will be put up for adoption.
Maybe his new forever home will have an armchair: the perfect armchair that will never see rain, or cold, or a passerby that doesn’t care. I think he’d like that.
