‘He just wanted to feel safe’: The heart-warming story of a dog named Duncan, found covered in scars and wounds following Hurricane Irma

DAILY MAIL: ‘Doe-eyed pooch Duncan nuzzles the neck of animal center worker Sarah Rosenberg of the LifeLine Animal Project … When he was rescued he was covered in scars and open wounds… But despite going through “living hell”, Duncan – an American pit bull terrier cross who is thought to be three or four – was clearly craving affection. A touching picture captures the moment the gentle pup snuggled rescuer Sarah shortly after he arrived at the shelter in Atlanta, Georgia. Community engagement manager Sarah, 51, said: “He was quietly curled up and when I walked over he looked up and started wagging his tail… He was so loving. He didn’t want to go anywhere or be fed, he just wanted to feel safe. I held him for a very long time.” She added: “I feel like he has been on a journey and whatever he had seen he was tired from it… To be somewhere he could just lie down and sleep and not be afraid that something would happen must have been a relief. “He just wanted to feel safe and have somebody to show him love – and give him a cuddle”

… Now staff are trying to find him a home. Sarah added: “He was in pretty rough shape when we found him but now his wounds are healing and he is building up his strength… He is a beautiful dog who is wonderful with humans. He has been through so much suffering but still has so much saved-up love to share… The humans who give him a forever home are in for the love of a lifetime”.’ SOURCE…
