A volunteer writes: Sweet, gentle, pretty little Xena the warrior princess! Xena the senior is gentle, calm, and laidback, very easy to walk on a leash, and loves her people. When I first met Xena, she wasn’t sure if she was that into me– sniffing the treat I offered her and turning up her nose. But about 2 minutes later, she was wagging her tail and eating out of my hand (literally!). Xena was even standing up on her hind legs and gently pawing me for attention. Xena’s sweet grey face and gentle paws are looking for a nice, comfy couch to chill out on. Could it be yours? Please come and meet her at the Brooklyn ACC today!
