Hi! I'm here! Hooray! I have arrived in Northern VA and am happily seeking my new forever home! Yes indeed.
My name is Duke and I’m part of the 9/11 Memorial Dog themed transport. I am named in honor of Search and Rescue dog Duke, from CA who served at the World Trade Center during the 9/11 Tragedy. I am SO honored and proud to carry Duke's name.
I’m guessed to be a Aussie mix and estimated to be about 3 years young. I’m a sweet boy and I currently weigh about 55 lbs. My pup-sitter said I was a good house guest, good in my crate and she calls me BOUNCY! I guess that's because I am a happy dog. I enjoy following my people around and love it when they pet me and pet me some more.
I’m searching for my new FOREVER family to LOVE and who will love me too. Is that with you! If so PLEASE, apply today! I won’t be available long!

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.

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.
