Meet Duffy!

Duffy is a 4 year old male silky terrier who was rescued from a Memphis kill shelter. Duffy's elderly owner died and her children brought Duffy to the shelter where owner-surrendered dogs are often euthanized right away. Luckily he was spotted by a volunteer that very morning and they managed to get him out of the shelter just in time.

Duffy is an independent little dog, not clingy or needy, easy and low maintenance. I bet he would love to take one of those Orlando vacations with you! He prefers a quiet, non-hectic home life where he can nap on the couch or in his little dog bed at his rescuers feet while she's work on the computer.

He ignores the cats and coexists peacefully with my other dogs, however he doesn't play with them and I think he'd be perfectly happy as an only dog. He's crazy about balls, likes to carry them around and take them to his bed but doesn't fetch and retrieve. Good on a leash (he wears a halter as do all our small dogs) and rides well in the car.

We found Duffy through Good Dog Rescue in Enfield, Connecticut.
