We were given a little extra time to find a foster home or forever for Bronx and Brooklyn but not much - they now have until tomorrow, Sat, Aug 20th at NOON. Please open your heart and home to these sweet siblings!!
URGENTLY need a foster home or adopter for Brooklyn (paste the following link into your browser to see Brooklyn and Bronx together https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqrSAZL3e48) and Bronx! PLEASE help us save these two sweethearts. They are a bonded pair and would love to be rescued together.
We know it takes a big heart (and a little extra space in your home) to rescue a dog and that the thought of rescuing two can be overwhelming but if everyone has that same thought no one will step up and save these precious animals and they will die. I truly wish this was an exaggeration of the truth but it is not: ( it's a reality. If we don’t find a foster home or forever home for them by this Thurs, 8/18/2016 everyday thereafter will be a gift and could be their last. They are mature siblings and enjoy each other so much so that having two will actually make it easier in many ways. When you’re not home they will have each other. When it’s bed time they will cuddle. When it’s play time you can engage or watch and be entertained or both. It’s like having twins but at the stage where they are so much fun and a lot less work. Calling on all to post, cross-post, share and HELP US save Brooklyn and Bronx before it’s too late. Please reach out with any questions and/or APPLY to foster or adopt TODAY!
BASIC INFORMATION: Brooklyn is a healthy 5 yr old spayed female that is mostly white with a few red patches. Since a puppy she has been a loyal loving companion. Due to her owner having personal problems Brooklyn (and her brother, Bronx) have been surrendered to the shelter. The two have lost everything they have ever known and although they are in the same building they are currently apart.
SOCIALIZATION: Brooklyn is relaxed when meeting strangers; she will slowly approach to sniff and then becomes friendly and affectionate. She has lived with young children, was relaxed with them and allowed handling (esp. loved being petted). Around adults in the home she was playful and would follow them around curiously. She has always lived with her brother, Bronx and they are very close. They did everything together, slept in the same bed, shared water and would play for hours.
BEHAVIOR: Brooklyn allows all handling. She allows her food bowl to be touched while eating, removing toys or raw hides from her mouth. She enjoys her coat brushed and is friendly towards stranger. She is house-trained and never has accidents in the house. She knows the commands sit, stay, come and down.
FOR NEW FAMILIES TO KNOW: Brooklyn is friendly, confident and mellow. She enjoys lounging next to her brother or sun bathing in the backyard. She loves to watch children play. Sometimes she plays chase with her brother. She sleeps anywhere in the house. She eats 2x a day.
During intake Brooklyn was relaxed and mellow. She approached counselor and sniffed. She allowed to be collard, scanned and photographed.
During SAFER Brooklyn came into the assessment room calm and relaxed, she was friendly and social towards the assessor. She allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Brooklyn was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Brooklyn was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Brooklyn is sociable, and did not display any behaviors concerns, so the department feels she can be suitable for an average adopter.
