A volunteer writes: Bishop, the gentle giant! This sweet boy first came to us in July 2016 when his former owner was experiencing personal problems, and is now back with us again. Although his size might make you think he would pull on the leash, he is quite easy to walk, and basically a big mush. Bishop is not only strikingly handsome (the big strong type with kind eyes), but unsurpassed in the sweetness department. He was born in his former home, but has faced the recent departure from it with such bravery! He is very waggy and attentive, and after a minute or two of warming up, he completely melts. Bishop loves belly rubs, gives gentle kisses and is very quietly affectionate. He hasn''t shown any guarding issues, has a medium activity level, liked to be in the same room as his people, and is friendly when having a bath. He has been very easy to handle when I''ve walked him, seems housebroken, and loves scratches behind the ear. I have a feeling Bishop is going to make someone VERY happyÂ…maybe you! Please come see him at Brooklyn ACC.

Another volunteer writes: Bishop has become my go-to pal for those grumpy grey days we all have once in a while, and I suspect he''s the same for many others. He has amassed quite a fan club of shelter staff and volunteers who smile and often give him shout-outs, which is saying something, given how many dogs pass through here. Not only is Bishop extremely easy to handle, he never forgets a face, and will instantly go up to his kennel door and start furiously wagging his tail at the sight of one. He loves his walks so much that he will forego mealtimes for them, no matter the weather, especially since he likes to keep his kennel spotless. Bishop sits for treats and takes them gently, is very quiet in his kennel and will let you hug him until the cows come home. He was friendly with a cat in his former home, and okay with other calm dogs. Bishop has such a big heart to match his solid frame, it''s a wonder he hasn''t been snapped up yet -- he so deserves to be happy and loved in return. Can you make room in your home for 80 pounds of instant therapy? Come to Brooklyn ACC soon for a session with Bishop!
