Duke, the sweet, petite 2 year old Border Collie mix, got lucky. Since Duke was found roaming the street in front of the Abilene Animal Shelter, he was considered a stray. Strays are usually scheduled to be put to death after a customary waiting period. That time for Duke had run out. Luckily, a Border Collie rescue group from Conroe, Texas stepped forward and agreed to take Duke in at a foster home. Duke will live with Deborah, a Border Collie Rescue Volunteer, until a permanent home is found for Duke.
