ONYX – 19286
Gone - 2-1-2018 Brooklyn
Hello, my name is Onyx. My animal id is #19286. I am a male black dog at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 6 months old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 27-Jan-2018, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- no time for animal.
onyx 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. Onyx appears to be very exuberant and high energetic (not knowing his own strength), for these reasons we advise against a home with children at this time.
My medical notes are…
