My name is Duke and I am guessed to be a 2.5 year old Siberian Husky. I'm a super sweet boy weighing around 71 lbs. I love big hugs, belly rubs, long walks, exploringthe dog park, yummy treats(see me with one of my favorite bones!), sunbathing, and cuddling on the sofa right next to you. I am loving the cold weather and enjoy napping and people watching on the front porch.
- Crate trained.
- Knows basic commands.
- I pull a little when I'm curious about a scent but overall walking well on a leash.
- Human and dog friendly.
- Super affectionate and loving.
I am a Southern gentleman from the state of Mississippi. I was found in a rural isolated area confused and hungry. Thankfully, I was rescued by a lovely family who fostered me and now I am here ready for my forever family. If you're looking for a calm, well mannered, and adorable teddy bear look no further. Apply now and let's be cuddle buddies!
This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. The disease was treated while in foster care. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Ashland, VA for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Ashland.
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
