DAXX – 15931
Safe - 12-28-2017 Brooklyn
Hello, my name is Daxx. My animal id is #15931. I am a male white dog at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 1 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 11-Dec-2017.
Daxx 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.
A volunteer writes: I started to lose count of how many accolades Daxx received as I walked him. “He’s my favorite!” One staff member told me. “Love him!” Another shouted out. It’s no surprise then, that Daxx won me over immediately. He reminds me of a a big sheep dog that’s been sheared to a short coat, his jowls are so smushy and floppy and when he stands on his hind legs to give me a hug his big lug head reaches my shoulders. Found wandering the halls of a building alone, we don’t know much about Daxx’s past. However, throughout his stay at the care center, he’s proven to be a mild-mannered, sweet and affectionate dog. He thrives on human attention, loves being pet, knows commands such as sit and give paw, and appears to be housetrained. He’s even been used as a social greeter dog in playgroup-showing a soft, wiggly body with other dogs and is respectful of their space. I could go on and on about what a great dog Daxx is, but the only way to know for sure, is to ask to meet him today!
