Meet Duke

Meet Duke

Our Sis, being the animal lover that she is, is volunteering at the Humane Society in Pittsburgh to walk dogs. We wish she were walking us, but if she can’t be, we are happy to share her with dogs in need. She was really sad when she was reading the papers of a dog named Duke because under reason for surrender, it said that Duke’s family had gotten a new pet and the new pet didn’t get along with Duke! What? Throw out the old when you get a new? The new dog better watch out if the family gets tired of him too. Now, we don’t know all the circumstances, so perhaps we are being harsh, but it just made us sad too. Duke is kind of a cousin to us because he is part Akita, the big brother dog of the Shiba Inu. He’s also part Pit Bull, is brindled in color, and is just over a year old. If you’re in the PGH area, and are looking for an awesome dog, go visit Duke. You can read more about Duke and the Sis’s experiences at the Humane Society at her blog.

Lots of Luv,

Akira and Shrio

    That’s just so sad that some people get rid of their 1st dog & instead keep the new one. Probably the new dog a Pedigree so maybe that’s why they decided to keep that one instead. This happens all the time in my country. People will just get rid of their mixed breeds/mongrels after getting a Pedigree. It’s just sad right?

    sadly, that happens! most will choose the newbie over the oldie. 😦 at least they are kind enough to put him up for adoption instead of abandoning him by the road side.

  3. It’s simply too sad to learn this (and ridiculous).

    We just cant figure out why they would choose the newbie over the old, isnt there a bond? The least Duke’s family could have done was to bring Duke to meet the pup before deciding to bring it home for good.

    Even as we dogsit Lafite, we can tell that M isnt willing to part with her despite her short stay even thou she has to someday for her better future.

    We pray that Duke will go to a BETTER home soon.
