Duke's Story- Duke was found wandering St. Louis city streets. A kind woman found him and took him to Stray Paws Rescue. Duke, a senior Dachshund, thought to be about 12 years old, was severely underweight, riddled with parasites, matted hair and rotting teeth. Stray Paws cared for him and put him up for adoption. Nina saw Dukes picture shortly after the losing a beloved dog she rescued 17 years ago. Nina's heart was broken and Duke came across her path for a reason.
