CRANBERRY BLISS – 12508
Safe - 11-27-2017 Brooklyn Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Cranberry Bliss. My animal id is #12508. I am a female tan dog at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 5 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a agency on 13-Nov-2017.
Cranberry Bliss 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. Cranberry Bliss is Suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: I’m not sure if it’s the endearing combination of her shabby coat (which is getting less shabby by the day…she had a bad case of fleas) and her upbeat attitude, but there is just something about Cranberry Bliss! She has the kindest eyes, the cutest gap-toothed smile, and just radiates warmth. She isn’t bad on leash, has the best wiggly tail wag, and sometimes nuzzles my hand as we’re walking (I like to think of it as a cheers to friendship!). She seems housebroken, has been social with other dogs in our playgroups, and is very treat-motivated. She absolutely loves toys, but seems just as excited about a squeaky lobster as she is about having someone to sprawl out next to while she chomps on it. She is really fun to be around, and just when I thought she couldn’t get any more charming, sometimes she howls at me when I put her back in her kennel…the sweetest! Please come meet this lovely lady at Brooklyn ACC!
