A little white Maltese who would be named Duffy Day was destined to be one of the millions of dogs euthanized each year. Many animals are not considered good candidates for adoption because of behavioral or medical problems, and Duffy had both. It was through the efforts of an Omaha veterinarian, a friend of mine, that Duffy was rescued and given a new lease on life.
That veterinarian treated Duffy's medical problems and took him home where he was given the loving care that had been missing from his life. It took several months for him to adjust to this new environment, but surrounded by a caring family, including two other Maltese dogs, Duffy came out of his shell and began to accept the loving care that he so deserved. The veterinarian knew all along that if Duffy responded to his new environment, he would place this little white angel with me, his friend, who had recently lost a little white dog of her own. I welcomed Duffy (the name I gave to him) into my home and my heart where he flourished and bonded with me and my household that welcomed so many animals just like him. So Duffy Day went from being an abandoned, mistreated and abused ragamuffin to residing in one of the most loving, caring homes in the world.
