Back in January, we covered a story about a dog called Needy (now known as Duke).  He had been abandoned in Pennsylvania, left only with a teddy bear.  After being rescued by Diamonds in the Ruff, he went into foster care, and was searching for a new home.  Well, his dreams have come true – a family from Maryland has taken him in, and he really loves his new home.

When Duke’s story hit social media outlets, pictures of him were shared by thousands of people.  The heartbreaking image of him in the kennel with his teddy bear was enough to make even the toughest people cry.

However, now Duke has a really great forever family.  He seems to fit right in with everyone.  Even his cat and bird siblings have taken a liking to him.

So, Duke may have been abandoned, and may have lost his teddy bear as well.  However, today, thanks to Diamonds in the Ruff Rescue, and some very caring people from all over the internet, Duke is in a really awesome place, with people that have promised to love and take excellent care of him for the rest of his days!
