Update: Maddie was euthanized 1/9/18 – rest in peace
The last call has been issued for a terrified dog who was surrendered to the Animal Care Center in Brooklyn. The dog, named Maddie, is clearly confused by her current situation – volunteers and staff have noted that she is scared.
So scared, in fact, that she sits curled up in a ball, trying to escape her reality. So scared that she can’t be fully evaluated. Safer summary notes on Maddie explain:
Maddie was tense when approached in kennel. She is curled up in a ball with a tucked tail and whale eyes; she retreats to the other side of her kennel when the door opens. She growls once but then slowly walks up to the front where she is able to be leashed. Maddie allows very minimal handling and is tense throughout interaction. Out of concern for her stress levels and her response to restraint, we feel Maddie is not a great candidate for a handling assessment at this time.
Advocates are trying to find a safe place for Maddie to go – a place where she will feel secure enough to allow her true personality to come through.
