TO BE DESTROYED 10/27/16 A volunteer writes: I met Umi as she was being walked by another volunteer. Such a great pup on the leash and looking so happy and carefree, just like a puppy should be. Umi is adorable in her shiny ebony dress and she is all ears and eyes when she sees a treat and a ball. She is an excellent "sitter," obeying my order in a military way. She eliminates in the street or in the yard. Could she be house-trained, or partially? Umi seems to like other dogs met through the fence or during our stroll. I heard that she has a very good time in playgroups with other pooches. Umi is a very pretty and petite young girl, quite friendly and affectionate, good with her own kind and ready to jump into your life as your forever best friend. Just like any puppy, she will need some guidance and training, time and commitment to make of her the best pet you can ever dream of. Umi is at the Manhattan Care Center.
TO BE DESTROYED 10/27/16 A volunteer writes: There are so many reasons to hail Ceaser! As far as looks go, he would fit in right alongside the sculpture of his namesake at the Louvre: he is solid, has the best smile, looks like he's made of velvet AND has the cutest light pink spots under his nose. He was surrendered to us for being too active for his family's lifestyle, but they provided lots of positive information about him. He lived with a 3 month old and a 2 year old (he was tolerant with them but maybe not super aware of his size!), played gently with the Min Pin and other Pitbull he lived with, (he has done well in our playgroups, too!) and was tolerant and respectful of the 3 cats in the home (Ceaser and I encountered a stray on one of our walks and he remained cool as a cucumber!). He liked to follow his owner around the house, is very housebroken (he seems it, and one time showed me an adorable celebratory dance after he pooped!), LOVES to run with sticks, and already knows basic commands. He has been on his best behavior with volunteers here at the care center, and we all marvel at how nicely he walks. When I take him in the yard, he loves to play fetch, will prop his paws on the fence to greet admirers on the other side, and sprawls out like a frog. He is super friendly, waggy, playful, affectionate and engaging...HAIL, CEASER! Or better yet, just come meet him at Brooklyn ACC!
TO BE DESTROYED 10/27/16 A volunteer writes: Google the name Maggie and you'll come up with a couple of different meanings: "Pearl" and "child of light". I love both of those for this little black and white morsel of deliciousness. Fun, friendly, and sweet, with the best smile and ever wagging tail, Miss Maggie is so happy to be outside to potty which she does endlessly. Whew...holding it for a while. We're off to the park, Maggie pulling just slightly in her joy at a nice walk, and once in the park she poses for photos like a pro, ignoring all the squirrels who come to investigate. Wagging her tail at a yappy small dog who was pulling towards her, Maggie is indeed full of light as she alertly checks out the park, enjoys some treats, and cutely gets tangled up in her leash when I have her tethered. Maggie has been well taken care of before being found wandering alone in the street and brought into our care by the police. Her coat gleams, her weight is perfect for her size and she loves meeting new people. All wiggly fun and soft delight, our 'pearl', our 'child of light' is hoping to begin her happily ever after with a new person or family. Please come meet her today.
TO BE DESTROYED 10/272016: A volunteer writes: Diamond is as precious as her name, a timid yet incredibly affectionate ebony beauty who'd be a strong candidate for the title of both world's worst model and world's sweetest dog! You'll have to use a bit of imagination to see how truly pretty Diamond is from her photos as during our shoot she's in perpetual motion, constantly angling for a snuggle session with me or a play date with her doggie friends. Though anxious in her kennel, she's very easy to leash and soon we're out the door and breathing the sweet air of freedom, something Diamond especially seems to appreciate as she points her nose straight up to sniff sniff sniff the air! This darling pup arrived as a stray and when a simple bounce of the tennis ball sends her cowering under the chairs, I have to wonder if she's ever known a truly caring home. I gently reassure her that everything is ok and Diamond emerges with a tentative tail wag, eager to be loved and fussed over. All is forgiven as I pet her and she burrows her head into my lap, a perfect little doll. Despite Diamond's bashfulness she's still a playful puppy at heart and when other dogs pass by I catch glimpses of the carefree girl she has the potential to be. She leaps and bounds to be near them and the ears that refused to perk for my camera stand to excited attention whenever she sees a fellow pooch. Diamond does pull slightly on leash but seems quite house trained and she's very responsive when I call her back to me, a little polish and her manners will soon shine as brightly as her namesake. This hidden treasure is still waiting to be discovered by a special, gentle person with the patience to take things slowly as she learns that humans can be trusted and that she will be loved...forever this time. Another volunteer writes: Now here is my personal favorite Diamond. She was quite the dog. Diamond is a calm and very affectionate pit-bull. When you hear how much pit-bull owners love and defend their dogs, Diamond is the reason why. All she wanted to be was near you and lean against your leg. And if there are two people around don't get jealous Diamond will make time for everyone. She splits her time and hugs evenly to everyone around. She is 2 years and 10 months old. You will love this dog!
