While everyone is celebrating, wrapping gifts and looking forward to seeing our families, Kimbo waits at Brooklyn’s Animal Care Center. Along with all the other orphans, three-year-old Kimbo waits,
“Why doesn’t anyone want me? You think I don’t know? Will I see tomorrow?,” he wonders.
Sure Kimbo can’t speak, but watch how he pokes his nose through the bars with excitement when someone walks by. Watch how his rear end wiggles as he happily wags his tail when someone walks by. Then watch, how his head drops and his body slumps when no one stopped to pet him and walked out of sight.
Kimbo didn’t do anything wrong. He is young, healthy and adoptable. Humans have failed him; he hasn’t failed anyone, yet he is scheduled to die at anytime.
“Do you think this beautiful boy should be killed just because he is a bit of a ‘wild child’? Sure he can be mouthy, might not have proper manners on a leash yet, and other dogs can send him over the moon with excitement, but this is all TRAINABLE,” a volunteer writes.
Observed Behavior: Very sweet. High energy. Did well for all medical handling and procedures.
Safer Summary: Kimbo was soft, social and attention seeking throughout.
Dog-Dog: Kimbo should be placed with resident dogs that are well socialized, tolerant, and that can match his energy.
TO SAVE LITTLE BOY KIMBO, please post on THREAD or PRIVATE MESSAGE Must Love Dogs pg. He is OUT OF TIME!
