A dog, homeless at a Florida animal shelter since May, knows that nobody wants him, but that doesn’t stop him from enjoying his 15 minutes of freedom each day. Yes, just 15 minutes is all that Dunken gets to enjoy each day…the rest of his day, all 23. 75 hours of it, are spent in a kennel run at the Citrus County Animal Services facility in Inverness, Florida.
An advocate writes:
Dunken is such a great dog. He will hold his potty for a 24 hour period of time. He does not want to soil his kennel. Life is hard for a big boy of 80 pounds being in a concrete kennel day after day — Since MAY! He keeps a great attitude though. But he knows. He knows nobody wants him. He’s figured it out. He knows he is too big, not a puppy, plain features, nothing flashy.
But yet — he lives for his 15 minutes outside. He puts a smile on his face, he rolls down the hill on his back and almost giggles while he does it, he splashes in the kiddie pool, and he gets to be with a person. For 15 minutes. Then it’s back to the kennel for 23.75 hours so he can do it again. Most of us would be bitter and broken. But not Dunken.
