Duke is a male chocolate lab, approximately 2 years in age. He came through Labrador Retriever Rescue of Florida as an owner surrender. Duke had been left out in the yard and abandoned by his previous owners. He was severely emaciated and dehydrated when he came to us. Now he is a big, healthy boy, weighing in at over 80 lbs. He is an active dog who loves to work, and his always ready attitude make him a great service dog.
