A volunteer writes: At the moment, Macarena might be a little sad to look at (nothing a little TLC and food won’t fix!), but being with him will leave you smiling from cheek to cheek! He seems to err on the side of being shy, but comes more and more out of his shell each time I walk him, and is nothing short of COMPLETELY sweet and endearing (!!!). He already knows “sit”, “paw”, and “down”, and given his appetite for treats, you could probably teach him all of the moves from his namesake in no time. He is very easy to walk on leash, seems housebroken, and even loves to play fetch. Plus that little spot on his head looks like a bullseye for kisses, and I’ve caught him howling in his cage after I’ve put him back…I take it as a sign he’s meant to be someone’s very loyal, loving best friend! Please come visit him at Brooklyn ACC and see if that’s you!
