Stephanie Dagenhart was out for a walk with her dogs one cold morning when she noticed something that made her heart drop. There was a dog tied to a nearby tree with no owner in sight.
The dog, named Duke, was abandoned at Patterson Park in Baltimore. He was shivering and terrified. His previous owner left him with some of his belongings and a note.
The note said, “My name is Duke. Here’s my favorite toy and my food. I am looking for a new home.”
Stephanie Dagenhart was heartbroken when she read the note, and she sat with Duke while she waited for animal control to come pick him up. While she waited, other neighbors stopped by, bringing blankets and treats for the scared two-year-old American Bulldog.
