18 April 2017  It is hard to believe that this gorgeous happy boy was not only dumped on the streets of Brooklyn but ended up on the dreaded "to be destroyed" list. After beating fate multiple times he was given a "Second Chance" at finding his happily ever after. Baldo has left his unfortunate past behind and is ready to begin the next chapter of his life with his forever family. At 2 years old and 72 pounds Baldo is still very puppy-like. Lovingly known by his foster family as "Beefy" and "Big Baby" Baldo is energetic, playful, silly, affectionate and yes sometimes mischievous. Baldo is all about living life to the fullest. He loves to explore the great outdoors with his people by day and give kisses for cuddles by night. Baldo is happiest when running through the woods, splashing through the streams and barking at the river waves on his foster family's property. As far as he is concerned the leaves are for jumping in, the grass is for rolling on and sticks are for chasing and chewing. Eager to please and food motivated Baldo has learned to take treats nicely and respond to basic commands such as "sit", "paw", "down" and "look". Baldo will even "sit" and "wait" while being fed as well as when exiting/entering the home. He does well when left home alone in a gated/fenced dog friendly area and is making excellent progress with over coming his fear of the crate. Baldo would do best in a home with a bully savvy owner, older children (10+) and a big fenced in yard allowing for plenty of playtime and consistent daily energy releasing exercise. Baldo is the only dog in his foster home but has played nicely with females his own size and exuberant play style. His behavior around cats is unknown, though he seems to enjoy chasing them. Baldo is house trained, up to date on vaccinations, neutered, microchipped and ready to meet his forever family. Baldo is 2.5 years old and weighs 70pounds.

About Second Chance Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small, individual, private rescue group dedicated to giving unwanted dogs and cats a second chance. Most of the animals we rescue are strays and or owner surrenders to high kill city shelters. Many of them have been pulled off “death row”. We are very passionate about what we do, we love and care for these animals unconditionally. Our goal is to place our homeless rescues in permanent loving homes as their former owners have already abandoned them at least once before.

Adoption process includes adoption application, phone interview and home visit. Vet references are checked!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a physical shelter, we place our rescues in foster homes or boarding facilities where they are socialized and nurtured back to health before we place them in their forever home. If you are interested in adopting a friend, kindly look at our available pet on this site.
