12/20/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Sweet and gentle Skyler is a little bit shy at first, but doesn’t let her hesitance get in the way of her natural curiosity. Skyler loves to explore and seeks attention from the staff and volunteers who take her out, always eager for an ear scratch or a belly rub. She seems to really thrive on human companionship and gain confidence from being around people. Skyler doesn’t pull on the leash, can sit for treats and take them very gently, and seems to be at least a little bit housebroken! 🙂 Skyler stays quiet in her cage but perks up when going for walks, wagging her tail and using her expressive ears to show how happy she is to go out. Come and see this pretty little lady at the Brooklyn ACC today.
