About Duke

Duke is not your average Jack Russell! He is not hyper and loves to snuggle in your lap! He loves to eat! When we first got him he had been eating from his momma & puppy food! He was so big that his belly was so fat his back legs would not reach the ground! They began shrink quickly as the rest of his body grew! I began a daily physical therapy routine with him, exercising his legs and forcing him to walk! I put him in the sink and he paddled with his back legs gaining strength every day! After a month he was running on all fours! He has the sweetest personality & always seems to know when you need a belly rub! He has an enlarged heart now as well as asthma and allergies. He takes 3 medications twice a day and has an inhaler. He is doing very well as of January '17

About Dolly

Dolly is a rescue we've had for four years now and I can't imagine life without her and Duke! She is very sweet and loves her belly scratched. She loves to chew any squeaky toy! Gets along very well with most dogs and loves to play. She was attacked by a Ridgeback in 2013 and this had a big affect on her personality and also she now has a fear of bigger dogs with smooth coats. She is getting better with time but it's been a traumatic event for her.
