Facts about Maurice

  • Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Unknown
  • Size: Unknown
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 11219283-17-0191

30 May 2017: He is from Alabama. He has impaired vision and needs a optometrist. 
He is very sweet. He is good with other dogs. He is 4 yrs old and about 60lbs and he is solid as a rock
He will be neutered soon ...

This guy is a total hunk, full of hugs, kisses, and energy lots and lots of energy

He is completely blind, but that doesn't stop him one bit, his sense of smell and hearing are amazing, he will run into stuff but once he knows where it all is he's good to go. He can play ball like a king, he's awesome at it, he takes his treats gentle, he will bounce around sharply at things he hears since he can't see it, he knows his basic commands, he can use some leash manners he pulls some

He is no cats and older kids would be best no little kids...he is very, very strong and with not being able to see he does touch with his mouth, not hard he needs to feel what it is,

He does okay with most dogs, he is a dominant dog and likes to hump and doesn't really take the correction well when the dogs wanted him to stop, no fights but that needs work, he would do best with a calm submissive dog, his size

He would do best with an experienced, strong leader and will not be bother with his blindness, as this doesn't bother Maurice at all

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.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption/Foster Application must be completed online via the link below.

http://nycsecondchancerescue.org/app-form/


Home visit is required along with Vet references. Our full list of fees have been listed on the adoption application. Our dogs come fully vetted and have to be spayed/neutered prior to adoption.
