Duke is a diamond in the rough waiting for his forever home
Two-year-old Duke is a sweet German Shepherd-mix who is part of our “A Mission for Home” Rescue Program. He was brought to the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center from an overcrowded shelter in the Inland Empire where he was found as a stray.
Since he was scared while on the loose, he was extremely difficult for that shelter to catch and ended up burning his paw pads. Today, this adorable pup is safe, healed and only wants to be with his people. Like most German Shepherds, Duke will make an extremely loyal and dedicated companion.
At 60 pounds, he is a good-sized dog who acts like a goofball. He can, however, jump a fence, so he would require someone with a secure yard who is home most of the time. A charming trait of Duke’s is his right ear that stands straight up when it should lay flat. He is a loving dog and diamond in the rough waiting for his forever home.
