SPOTS – 11608
Safe - 11-14-2017 Brooklyn Rescue: Rescue Dogs Rock NYC Please honor your pledges: http://rescuedogsrocknyc.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Spots. My animal id is #11608. I am a female white 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 03-Nov-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- owner elderly.
Sports 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. Sports is suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Spots is a heartbreaker. Surrendered because her owner became to old to care for her, aside from some skin issues, she appears to be in a good health and was undoubtedly a beloved family member, even sleeping in her owner’s bed. So it’s no surprise that she seems a little lost and bewildered here at the care center. She’s incredibly sweet and quiet in her kennel. Her former owner says that she was unable to walk her, so she would do her business in the house; however, here at the center, she has managed to keep her kennel clean and do her business outside. She is good motivated, knows the sit command and seems to thrive with a little bit of attention. While Spots has never lived with another dog, she has been social around both male and female dogs in our playgroups (Spots may do best in a home without cats as she reportedly chases them outside). Spots may miss her former owner, but she is ready to open her heart to a new family. Could that be you? Ask to meet her today.
