Oklahoma Great Dane’s trek home takes him through Colorado Springs

It took a lot of miles and plenty of help from volunteers before a Great Dane found his way back home to Moore, Okla. His travels included a stay in Colorado Springs.

Duke was one of two Great Danes found after the massive May 20 tornado in Moore. The two dogs were taken from the rescuer by someone who represented herself as being from the Central Oklahoma Humane Society. They ended up with a rescue group in Northern Colorado.

Eventually, volunteers picked up Duke and he spent about two days recovering in Colorado Springs before another volunteer piled him into a car for the drive back to Oklahoma.
