I am a neutered male, black Labrador Retriever mix.
The shelter staff think I am about 12 years old.
I weigh 57 pounds.
I was found in NY 10029.
I have been at the shelter since Jan 19, 2012
A volunteer writes: There are dogs you fall in love with simply because they are older, have given their hearts to their families and then find themselves at a shelter. Charley is such a dog. He was found tied to a fence. He seems to have been a loved family pet; his coat is thick and shiny, he is kind, sweet and gentle. And, he is bewildered. He was happy to have found a friend in me, happy to go for a walk on a very chilly day. His eyes are cloudy with cataracts and every once in a while he would stumble, usually on a sidewalk curb. Other than that he did wonderfully. His leash skills are excellent, he never pulls and he responds to direction perfectly. Charley may have some special health concerns, our vet can provide more information on that. What I can tell you however, is that no animal is more deserving of a warm, soft bed and a family to love him than Charley. He is the noblest of dogs who deserves to spend his life in the circle of family love. He is neutered and ready to find a new place to lay his head. He will be eternally grateful as will those of us who know him. Ask to meet Charley today.
DO NOT call and say you are adopting unless you truly intend on physically going to the shelter to adopt the dog. It ties up phones lines and is a waste of the staff's time to explain the adoption procedure over the phone for someone who is purposely not going to show up. They need every free second of their time to answer calls, assist actual adopters, process intakes, and care for the animals. More importantly, they will note the dog’s file that an adopter is en route which will prevent an actual adopter from saving the dog. This is considered a "fake adoption" hold and that is how dogs fall through the cracks and end up being killed.
