A volunteer writes: There is something about Bishop! His asymmetrical eyes and chiseled face make him look like he stepped right out of a painting, and he he has such a calm, cool demeanor. He joined us because his elderly owner could no longer care for him, but they left loads of good information about him. He’s said to be relaxed, playful and outgoing with both children and strangers (but can be exuberant), he’s lived harmoniously with another dog (and he’s done very well with others in our care, maintaining a calm, neutral posture throughout all interactions), and isn’t bothered if you disturb him while snoozin’ (way to make the rest of us look bad, Bishop!). He seems very housebroken, is very easy to walk on leash, and loves treats. He hasn’t shown me his cuddly side yet, but he’s totally friendly and appreciates company. He loves to play fetch and tug, sprawl out in the sun, and whines for attention after I put him back. He is really a special guy and could be your muse and your best friend! He would love to meet you at Brooklyn ACC.
