When we first adopted Duke, we had no idea what we were in for. He had always been a shelter dog, constantly jumping from shelters because he was just a "weird" dog who never responded to his name or commands. When we took this sweet boy in, I so desperately knew that he needed an mommy and that I needed a baby. We had just suffered a loss and I needed an extra furball to love on while I was healing. We found out that Duke was 100% deaf at his first vet appointment. I had never dealt with a deaf dog before but it made so much sense why he acted the way he did. Duke shows his love by giving hugs and gives the biggest cuddles. He helped heal my heart and truly saved me when I needed it the most.
