Update 1/25/18: Jade has been adopted!
A senior dog, eight years of age, is at risk of being put down because he has contracted a respiratory virus at the Animal Care Centers of NYC. The dog, named Jade, was surrendered on January 6 by his owner who cited health issues as the reason for giving his dog up.
Jade is a good boy who lived in a loving home – he aced his behavior tests at the animal care center. A volunteer writes:
“You gotta love a guy who can snooze when all around him is going bananas. I did a double-take when Jade finally roused himself to see what the fuss was about. His pictures don’t do him justice — he’s long, lanky, and gleaming gold. He is a pleasure to leash and walk, and takes care of business right away. Though a bit reserved to start, he’s soon smiling back at you and then leaning against you for shoulder rubs, and likes playing fetch. He is dealing well having lost the only home he’s known since puppyhood, as his former owner was having personal problems. Jade was gentle with the small child there, didn’t mind being brushed, bathed or pushed off furniture, and didn’t guard his food or things. Jade aced his behavior exam, and is now ready for a lucky new home. Meet him soon at Brooklyn ACC.”
Jade has done nothing to deserve his current situation – he is a good boy who deserves a loving home. If help doesn’t arrive soon, he will become nothing more than a sad statistic. Read all of the shelter notes on Jade at this link. Read more about the New Home program for at-risk dogs here.
