LADY SAPPHIRE – 12643
Safe - 12-2-2017 Brooklyn
Hello, my name is Lady Sapphire. My animal id is #12643. I am a female gray dog at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 4 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 14-Nov-2017.
Lady Sapphire is at risk due to being diagnosed with Canine Infection 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. Lady Sapphire is Suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: When she arrived in Brooklyn, the driver that transported her looked at me with stars in his eyes and sighed “what a sweetheart that Lady Sapphire is”…and is she ever! She might come off as a bit of a wild child in her kennel, but once outside, her whole world becomes just her and the person on the other end of her leash. She has been easy to walk, seems to have housetraining, and loves food. Her face was clearly meant for mushing, and she’s happy to accept plenty of it! She thrives on attention, is a perfect fit for any lap, gives kisses generously, and has the BEST smile. She is ready to be your co-pilot on adventures and make you feel loved each and every day…come meet her at Brooklyn ACC!
