RAMBO – 15589
Safe - 12-20-2017 Brooklyn Rescue: Adore-A-Bullie Paws and Claws Please honor your pledges: http://www.adore-a-bullie.org/donate
Hello, my name is Rambo. My animal id is #15589. I am a male black dog at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 07-Dec-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- no time for animal.
Rambo 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. Rambo is suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: He might have a tough guy name, but Rambo is a big ball of mush! I don’t think his face could possibly be cuter, and he basically treats every stranger like they are the best thing to ever cross his path. He loves treats, knows basic commands (but does tend to turn into a jumping bean if I’m not quick enough on the treat delivery!), seems housebroken, and hasn’t been difficult to walk on leash. He has a lot of energy, but the good news is he loves toys and is a fetching machine, so tuckering him out shouldn’t be impossible. His former owner tells us he was gentle with the resident child, he’s well behaved when left alone, and he played well with others at the dog park (he’s engaged in bouncy, cooperative play in our playgroups too!). Most of all, Rambo is just bursting at the seams with love to give: his tail is always a wiggly blur, he’ll barrage you with kisses (really, he nearly knocked me over once!), and he flops over for belly rubs (sometimes bringing a toy along for the ride!). He’d make a good wingman and an even better best friend…come check this uber sweet boy out at Brooklyn ACC!
