CAPE GIRARDEAU COUNTY, Mo. -- In Fruitland, a blind dog in needs a seeing eye person to help care for him.
Duke is a good natured Chocolate Lab, and he's full of life!  Despite his blindness, Duke used to be a farm dog. But, his owner recently passed away leaving him homeless. He's living at Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary in Cape County until he finds a permanent home.
Alice Wybert says Duke had all his shots and is great with  people and animals. He just needs a little extra love.
"We say he needs a seeing eye person," said Wybert. "We just try to lead him away from cars and other things, and make sure we put his food in the same spot."
The cause of Duke's blindness isn't know. Wybert believes he six or seven years old.
If you're interested in adopting Duke call Alice Wybert of Safe Harbor: (573) 243-9823
Besides Duke, there's nearly 100 other animals in need of homes at Safe Harbor.
