Duke the dog loves to play ball, he is very talkative, has the most adorable personality, and yet he can’t stay in one home for long. The senior pooch with short legs and a huge zest for life is just looking for a place to call his own. Instead, the senior Pit Bull mix roams from home to home, hopelessly waiting for his happy ending to come.

In his hometown of Christchurch, New Zealand, a deadly earthquake struck in the year 2011. While Duke survived the 6.2 magnitude shock, he went missing from his original family.

Abbey van der Plas, founder of Christchurch Bull Breed Rescue, shared with The Dodo, “There was a big coordination between groups to have earthquake dogs sent to other cities.”

Duke was safe in a completely different area of New Zealand, but he eventually ended up in a local shelter, according to van der Plas. Also, no one reported Duke missing and none of the details associated with his microchip panned out.

Destined to live a life alone, Van der Plas worked with Chained Dog Rehabilitation & Rehoming.

Sweet Duke got his happy ending because many people have now offered to step up and give him a forever home. He has recently been neutered, is recovering in a volunteer foster hone, and ready to make someone’s life complete.

Tail wags and lots of love coming your way, Duke!
