Super active pup ‘Cranberry’ given the ‘euth’ command

Update: Put to sleep. We are so sorry Cranberry. Humans failed you.

Today is super-active Cranberry’s last day at Brooklyn’s New York City Animal Care Centers. How heartbreaking it has become, when it was just a few days after Thanksgiving three dogs entered the shelter as strays and given names reflecting the holiday. Cranberry’s girlfriend, Gravy and puppy, Stuffing have been adopted; he’s the only one left from a family that once was. He deserves his chance at happiness too!

Tragically, it doesn’t seem as if Cranberry will be celebrating any holidays to come. Instead, he will take his last walk down a hall this afternoon and never again see the light of a new day.

Cranberry is about five years old and is a cutie. Just look at those eyes, and his loving face! Who knows what he has endured? We don’t know how long he wondered the cold streets, scared, without food or love. He also has a broken tooth which has to cause him pain.

We don’t know why his owner abandoned him or how he was treated or “mistreated.” Still, he seeks comfort and attention from the staff.

He isn’t a huge fan of other dogs, but he wants to socialize and be with humans. He deserves that and more. He loves getting pets and treats and jumps up for them. He loves to be loved, but he is finding confinement in his kennel to be extremely stressful. Who can blame him? This isn’t a reason to kill him!

What the staff says about Cranberry:

I need a home where there are no other dogs.

I would do best in a home with only adult humans.

I’m ready to learn! I need a patient person who has the time to work on training with me.

I love to be loved, but on my own terms! Let’s brush up on some canine body language together!
