MEGATRON – 8827
Hello, my name is Megatron . My animal id is #8827. I am a desexed male tan dog at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks i am about 6 years old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 04-Oct-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- moving – no pets allowed.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Megatron is a mega mush!! He sort of resembles a dinosaur (in the cutest way possible) and is SO sweet it’s impossible not to fall head over heels for him. He’s previously lived harmoniously with other dogs and children and, aside from not wanting to share his food with other dogs, has glowing notes from his former owner. During his short stay at the shelter I suspect he’s broken the record for charming the most people in the shortest time span — utter his name and it’s bound to be met with girlish squeals! He is super easy to handle, seems housebroken, is incredibly wiggly and affectionate. It doesn’t take much for him to invite himself onto my lap, he gives me kisses when I’m refilling his water bucket, and he makes contented grunty noises. He seems to have an ideal middle aged energy level and has so much love to offer!! He would love to meet you at Brooklyn ACC.
