Gone - 2-6-2018 Brooklyn
Hello, my name is Halo. My animal id is #19226. I am a desexed female black dog at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 26-Jan-2018, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- landlord won’t allow.
Halo 19226 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. He would do best with an experienced adopter in an adult only home.
