BOW – 10845
Safe - 11-6-2017 Brooklyn
Hello, my name is Bow. My animal id is #10845. I am a male white dog at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a aco impound on 26-Oct-2017.
Bow is at risk due to being diagnosed with Canine Upper Respiratory Disease Complex and will likely require home rest and a series of antibiotics for up to 14 days. This is a contagious illness to other dogs. Also Bow score an Average on his behavior assessment (safer)
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Bow is unfailingly still and quiet in his kennel, and it almost seems he is meditating. Sometimes he curls up and snoozes so soundly while his neighbors are going crazy all around him that he could mistaken for his blanket. He’s as warm and fuzzy as one, that’s for sure. He gets a sudden burst of energy at the prospect of a walk, though. Once outside, Bow walks happily and calmly on the leash, glancing sideways often and, though it is early in your friendship, sitting by your side and watching the world go by while accepting a few pats. After a minute or so, he sighs and rests his head on your shoulder. Maybe he is channeling his inner marshmallow? Or contemplating how he got to this place, and whether his previous family, which had to give him up after being evicted, is able to come back for him? He certainly seems to have been well-loved there, and well-trained, too — likely housebroken, and getting along with other dogs in playgroup. Our big mush is ready for a home where he can get as much love as he is ready to give — maybe yours? Please see Bow at Brooklyn ACC soon!
