There is nothing but praise for an unfortunate dog who is on the dreaded ‘list’ which puts her at high risk for being killed at a busy animal control agency in New York. The young dog, named “Zaire,” (ID #A1090945), is described as a snuggler who is a “total people dog.”
A volunteer shared some insight about the death-row dog:
I love when staff tells me how sweet and snuggly a dog is before I meet them. Nothing but accolades for what a people dog Miss Zaire is. Happy to be leashed, going potty as soon as we’re out the door, we head to my favorite snuggle place for some one on one time. Sure enough, Zaire leans into me, puts her head on my knee, and when I look back on my pictures her eyes are closed, savoring the moments.
Being lovable and happy is not enough to keep Zaire safe – to keep her from being on ‘the list’ that no dog should be on. Zaire is at risk of being killed, though she has done nothing wrong.
A volunteer added:
if you’re looking for a dog who will make you the center of her world, then Zaire is the girl you want to meet. I’d love to think of her in snuggle bliss, eyes closed with pleasure, cuddling in her new home. Are you the person who can give her that gift?
