9/20/2015 Update - Due to a surgery on Brooklyns Diaphram we are now requiring a fenced yard for her. Walking on a leash makes her cough and just seems to stress her system....
Update 3/24/2015 - Brooklyn is doing fantastic. She is a very loving little girl once she knows you. She takes a little to warm up and seems most comfortable with women. Her first two years of life weren't the best we are sure but we have promised her the rest of her life will be AWESOME!!!!
Brooklyn was hit by a car. She laid in ACCT Philly all day with no rescue in sight. The shelter vet decided that if no rescue stepped up by 6pm that he would need to euthanize her :( Philly made a last ditch effor call to us at 4:30 and we jumped into action. We were told by ACCT "we have a small little pug mix girl who has been struck by a car. We believe she has a broken scapula and she has fluid in her lungs..."
We were able to meet transport half way between Philly and Elizabethtown so we jumped in a car and a volunteer from Philly jumped in a car with Brooklyn. We transferred Brooklyn to our car and headed as fast as we could to our hospital to meet one of our vets.
Dr. Hann took xrays and we were pleasantly suprised to find Brooklyn did not have a broken scapula but unfortunately she had multiple broken ribs. She was hospitalized and stabalized and the fluid in her lungs was addressed.
She now is on total crate rest in a foster home for 3 weeks but she is a sweet little soul and she is going to make a great forever friend!
Please understand we do not adopt out to families with children under the age of 5. We do not adopt to renters. Some dogs will have fence requirements while others may not.
A dog is a lifetime commitment. The dogs in our system find themselves there, for the most part, because their humans did not have the same loyalty to them as they did to their owners :( We do not take the adoption process lightly, and will do everything in our power to make sure the dog is placed correctly the first time around for your sake and theirs. Thank you for choosing to adopt not shop!
