How does a friendly, middle-aged dog with a wiggly butt in spite of his dermatological issues, dubbed Sir Troy, be abandoned in a crate and left along a residential street in Brooklyn wind up on Monday’s euthanasia list at New York City Animal Care Centers? Speaking with his expressive eyes on Monday morning, Sir Troy addresses everyone regarding his bad luck:
“…Please find me a home today. I heard them say my time is almost up. I loved my family, but they put me in a crate and left me on the streets. My nose poked through the wires as they walked farther and farther away until finally they were gone. My heart sank and I never saw them again.”
Although Sir Troy might no longer be that adorable little puppy with the black button nose and the playful paws, it is hoped someone can see past his bruised little body and capitalize on that heart just filled with kindness and love. A volunteer writes about this dog, who she says is impossible not to love.
“He is in need of some dermatological TLC, but his tail is such a wiggly blur and his eyes are so soulful that you’ll hardly even notice. He sees a friend in every new face, welcomes help scratching his itches and shows his thanks with kisses and paws-in-the-lap. He is super treat motivated, usually takes them like a gentleman, and already knows ‘sit.’ He’s been fine when we’ve passed other dogs on our walks, has been easy on the leash and seems housebroken. Most of all he’s impossible not to love.”
Follow Sir Troy’s Facebook page here. He is described as seven years old and weighing 58 pounds. This dog can be adopted out to anyone in the public, but will need medical treatment for alopecia and related skin conditions. A veterinarian examination is recommended to diagnose and prescribe treatment.
“Hi, I’m really hoping you will like me, that you will be my friend, that you will pick me even though I’m not looking my best right now. ..He has proven himself to be an absolute darling at the shelter. First, he simply knocked his assessment out of the park, getting ALL COVETED 1’s across the board and a platinum AVERAGE rating, meaning he is good to go to a family with kids and even other pups who are calm like himself. He walks beautifully on leash because, after all, life is not a race – you have to take time to smell the flowers! He sits so patiently and nicely for treats and has a smile that could light up the cloudiest of days. But Sir Troy knows that this is it. He has been on the list before and despite all his charm, and kindness…”
