Bailey was left in the lobby of Brooklyn’s New York City Animal Care Center. His owner couldn’t be bothered to leave any information about him – how old, what he ate, did he have a favorite toy? When the staff veterinarians examined him, they found he had a heart murmur and a bleeding mass on his scrotum which was cauterized to stop the bleeding.
Someone in the shelter noticed Bailey’s calm energy and high tolerance; they made this sweet senior a “Counter Conditioning Helper Dog” for manageable reactivity. Sadly, however even that job for Bailey has come to an end – he is on the list to be humanely euthanized Tuesday afternoon.
A volunteer writes:
“I’ve walked Bailey a bunch now and it’s just heartbreaking that someone could leave this sweet older gentleman in the lobby. He was quite nervous when he first came, but he’s opened up and seems to like his volunteers. He is always easy to handle, always keeps his cage clean, loves to get snacks and go for his walks and is so cute!! He’s a bit chunky, low to the ground and has an infectious smile. Bailey does need some follow up medical care for a heart murmur and a lump on his scrotum that is bleeding.”
