Duke Andy

In 2010 Duke Andy found his forever home as he was adopted from the Dubuque Regional Humane Society.

Duke Andy is a mixed poodle-terrier-lab with a few other things. Duke Andy has been through obedience training at PetCo and has also been trained and certified as a Therapy Dog through Therapy Dog International. Duke Andy has been visiting Nursing Homes in Dubuque, Iowa since 2012. When he moved to Louisiana in the summer of 2014 he began regularly visiting nursing homes on the North Shore area of Lake Pontchartrain. Since he has been in Louisiana Duke Andy has participated in Barkus as a Lucky Dog!

All Hail Duke Andy!


Duke Parker


Duke Parker is a Jack Russell Terrier who was found by his daddy at Pet Fest in Lafreniere Park hence the name Parker. He loves chewing Bluetooths and eyeglasses and beating up on his siblings. Duke Parker is very excited to be a Duke again this year!

All Hail Duke Parker!

 Grand Duke Nike

This is Grand Duke Nike’s 6th trip to Barkus and his second reign as a Duke. He is a prime example of how a rescued dog can rise up from life in a horrific puppy mill to life as a Grand Duke! Duke Nike helps his homeless friends by raising money for local animal shelters and rescues in South MS as well as supporting human organizations. He also has his own Facebook page to help raise animal awareness.❤️

All Hail Grand Duke Nike!
