Dogs, found watching over deceased owner, need home

Duke Duke

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Last week, one of The Vickers House seniors enrolled in their 'Elder on the Edge' program, a program designed to prevent seniors in crisis from losing their homes, was found deceased.

When authorities arrived, they discovered the owner's two beloved dogs by his side. These two faithful dogs watched over their owner for over a week with no food or water.

Officials found them dehydrated and starving.  The West Palm Beach Police and Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control rescued the dogs, where Animal Care and Control did a miraculous job in saving their lives giving them emergency medical treatment. Vets say Max would not have lasted much longer.

Max and Duke are now at El Cid Animal Clinic where they are getting further health care. They were quite sad, but are starting to perk up with all the extra love and attention they are receiving at El Cid Animal Clinic.

Max and Duke are neutered males, have had all shots, been treated for fleas, ticks and worms, do not have heartworms, been bathed, groomed, and do not have any communicable diseases.  They are both 10 years old and have been together since pups. Therefore, they really need to be adopted together.

Max has two fatty growths that are not affecting him in anyway, and Duke is overweight and needs to be put on a diet.

If you would like to meet Max and Duke, please call Lela Jordan with The Vickers House at 561-804-4975.
