A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: You gotta love a guy who can snooze when all around him is going bananas. I did a double-take when Jade finally roused himself to see what the fuss was about. His pictures don’t do him justice — he’s long, lanky, and gleaming gold. He is a pleasure to leash and walk, and takes care of business right away. Though a bit reserved to start, he’s soon smiling back at you and then leaning against you for shoulder rubs, and likes playing fetch. He is dealing well having lost the only home he’s known since puppyhood, as his former owner was having personal problems. Jade was gentle with the small child there, didn’t mind being brushed, bathed or pushed off furniture, and didn’t guard his food or things. Jade aced his behavior exam, and is now ready for a lucky new home. Meet him soon at Brooklyn ACC.
