Rest in peace Brittany. We are sorry humans let you down.
Brittany is scheduled to be humanely euthanized on Friday at the Manhattan’s shelter of New York City Animal Services. It would be heartbreaking for her to lose her life today; Brittany is barely one-year-old. Here are parts of her story:
“She is a great walker, seems house trained, does not chase the pigeons and meets cordially other dogs. We are told that she does bark at other pooches in the street, and in the one playgroup she attended, Brittany was not too comfortable. But we had a little story in the park. Two nice off-leash dogs came to sniff us. Brittany sniffed them back and wagged her tail…go tell … She is described by her former owner as initially timid around strangers, a good dog across the board, but surrendered into our care as she did not get along with the young children in the house. My hunch is that she needs a peaceful lifestyle, maybe with a single owner or a couple devoted to her or a household with well-behaved older children,” posted the dog’s advocate on Facebook.
Please note that dogs scheduled to be euthanized are only announced 18 hours earlier.” My name is BRITTANY. My Animal ID # is A1104195. Manhattan Center, NY. I am a spayed female brown and white am pit bull terrier mix, approx 12 months old, Weight 58 lbs, rated Experience No Children (no children under 13)” Volunteers describe her as shy, but once she gets to know someone, she warms right up in search of love and affection.
“I met Brittany yesterday again. She knew me. She came right away to her door, took a treat and was ready to go out. Although free in a pen, Brittany chose to sit very close to me, her head in my lap for caresses. I think that she could have stayed that way for hours,” wrote another volunteer.
An additional Facebook page can be followed here with more information. This young gal’s time is nearing the close of life. Share her plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Brittany’s options depend on all of us. BRITTANY A1104195 is available to be reserved on the ACC website until noon of April 7th. http://www.nycacc.org/PublicAtRisk.htm
