Look Who’s Sheltering Shelter Dogs

Mary Kay and Allen Greenberg

Duncan Greenberg is living proof that second chances pay off. This Maltese-Bichon mix has his owners wrapped around his fluffy white paw.



“Allen is just crazy for Duncan,” says Mary Kay. “Of course, Duncan returns the love.” Duncan helped fill a void after the loss of Mary Kay and Allen’s 17-year-old Bichon, Bailey. When Mary Kay saw the 5-year old at NHS, she knew they could provide the perfect home. Duncan owns the house, the yard and might be the only Maltese in Omaha who will fetch. He also knows how to “sit” and “down” and is racking up frequent flyer miles as he travels to Arizona with Mary Kay. “He is perfect with us,” says Mary Kay, “although he’s pretty selective with tolerating other dogs.” That’s ok with Allen who claims “he makes up for it in cuteness.”
