Hi!  My name is Duke and you may not be able to tell from my pictures but I'm a really dark chocolate lab, about 4yo, and I weigh 63.5lbs.  I haven't been able to catch many breaks in life but I'm hoping my luck is about to change with BCAA's help.  My previous owner took me to a vet's office in rural Georgia to be euthanized 'cause he said he didn't want any more dogs.  Because I was such a good boy, the vet said no and asked him to sign me over to her; she then called a small local rescue to see if they could help us.  A volunteer with that rescue then called her friend with BCAA to see if they could help and they said yes so it looked my luck was changing.  But then when I went to another vet where it was discovered that I had something called "entropia" where my eyelashes were growing inward, so BCAA scheduled surgery to get them fixed; unfortunately, that vet didn't do such a great job so now I have what is sometimes called bloodhound eyes.  But my bad luck didn't stop there as my foster mom noticed that my eyes were still staying gunky so she took me to another vet where it was discovered that I have "dry eyes".  This just means I will need to have some drops put in to help me, just like when a person has dry eyes. So now I'm hoping that my luck is going to continue to get better and I'm now looking for a forever home where I am loved for how handsome I am and my wonderful lab personality (at least that's what my foster mom says about me!).  My foster mom says to tell you that I love going to for walks; I'm really good with not having accidents in either a crate or a kennel; I love my recliner for naps; and I really love my food and treats. I'm also good with other dogs and I don't have any problems with those things called cats.  If you would like to meet me, please fill out an application which can be found at http://www.bcaaofnj.org.  show less
