Update: Pulled by a rescue organization!
A playful senior dog, eight years young, is labeled “at risk” as of today, December 28. Xenon has quickly endeared herself with volunteers at the New York Animal Care Center in Manhattan.
A volunteer described this homeless senior:
Easy and gentle, she’s happy for the attention, happy to enjoy some yummy treats and some petting.
Xenon’s tail wags as we walk, and she checks out her new surroundings. Off leash, she loved to play tug, got the zoomies with some toys, and loved playing ball. She’ll jump for it, but closes her eyes, and I laugh. How is she going to catch the ball with her eyes closed? I picture a little leaguer with a baseball glove closing his/her eyes as the ball nears! Xenon is at that absolutely perfect age, happy with some play time, gentle walks, good food, nice naps, and lots of love. Gentle and sweet are the operative words here, and we’d of course like to add, ‘much loved’. She’s a middle aged sweetheart with so much love to give to her new family.
Xenon found herself at the animal shelter after she was found tied up in a park…whether it was by her former owner or someone else, nobody will probably ever know. All that is currently known is that this pretty senior gal is in need of an adopter (or reputable rescue agency) to save her. Please share Xenon’s information to help her find the help that she so desperately needs.
