Through no fault of his own, Bing Bong’s life is nearly over. Beginning at 1:00 p.m., the dogs on the euthanasia list at New York Animal Care and Control will be quietly walked back into a room and within minutes will “cease to exist.” Let’s discuss Bing Bong’s life, even though less than 18 hours ago, this friendly bulldog mix smiled and played with volunteers quite convinced this would be the day he would be adopted:
“TIED UP WITH HIS LITTLE SISTER – THEY SAT AND WAITED FOR THEIR OWNER WHO NEVER RETURNED. They thought they were going for a walk, all happy and trotting down the street together, tails wagging in delight. Then they found themselves tied to a tree, they wanted to run after their owner ‘don’t forget us!’ The waited patiently for hours, but they were never to see him again. Why are people so cruel? Bing Bong is adorably chunky bulldoggish good looks, gentle, full of smiles and love – he just needs that one special person to see it that he is so worth saving. “
A Facebook page to follow this dog’s last hours at hoping to find a foster home or adopter can be found here. If you’re wondering what this delightful boy with the pronounced underbite is like, a volunteer gives her opinion after spending a few hours with Bing Bong:
“BB’s great at meeting and greeting new human and doggie pals alike, walks nicely for his size, never guards his toys, sits like a champ for treats and mouths them gently too. He’s not too happy about being cooped up in a kennel but keeps a clean and tidy den and seems to be quite house trained, waiting patiently until we hit the street to do all his business. A gentle yet energetic giant with the smarts and good manners to pass his behavior assessment with flying colors … You’ll never outgrow him and he’ll always be by your side, playing, snuggling and snortling his way through a lifetime of happy family memories.”
