10937351_10205027392459926_719368889_n1/22/15 Update: We are happy for Duke. He has been very patient in waiting and we believe his patience has paid off. He has been adopted by the Bill  who came to us looking for his new pal.

He will be going to Middleburg,  FL where he will get to be a rural boy! Plenty of space to sniff and walk, lots of love! We couldn’t ask for more!pizap.com14217671429571


Wow, what a face!
Wow, what a face!

Duke is the perfect dog for someone who doesn’t have the patience for a puppy, wants a Border Collie, but not the crazy prey drive and hyper attitude of a Border Collie!

10/10/14 Update: Duke is now in Central Florida with us, and his transformation is just amazing! I personally drove to Georgia last weekend to pick him up. His coat and overall temperament has improved so much! He is friendly and loving to everyone he meets! He’s ready for his new home!

Please visit his photo album on Facebook to see the new photos we just uploaded!

08/27/14 Update: Good news! We had his thyroid checked and Duke is on a low-dose thyroid medication. Even though his test results showed normal, we are going to try a low dose for a short while.   What a difference! His hair is really growing back out nicely! This has helped us confirm that it’s not a food or skin allergy! Woo Hoo!

Daily walks is all he wants!

07/17/14 Update: Duke’s hair is growing back beautifully. Maybe it was dry skin from being outside all of the time, maybe it was the wrong diet, or even forgetting to give him flea medication, regardless, he’s ready to move into his new home!

History:  Duke has always been adored by his owners.  Recently his man human passed away, and sadly, his woman human is very ill, and had to give him up.  His veterinary records show that he had a lot of care, even yearly bloodwork, but no one knows why he is suffering from such hair loss.  We are consulting with our vets and reviewing his medical history to see if something was missed.  In the meantime, we’re taking care of his skin using coconut oil – he loves the taste of it!

Duke, ironically, he is appropriately named!  Duke is about 60 pounds, he is a Border Collie, and he is six years old.
