INTAKE DATE – 6/7/2019
He’s a tiny little man, shy and sweet, who only wants one thing – to be comforted and told that everything will be o.k. ASHLAND has such a gentle spirit, and he seeks out people who will give him love and attention. We have to say that looking at his poor body, emaciated and with his ribs protruding, is heartbreaking. Who systematically starved him, leaving him in such a state? He is so eager to please despite how hungry he must be, and he tries not to fidget or jump as he waits for his treats. He often fails, but when he does jump up, it is with hope and a gratefulness that only tugs at your heartstrings even more. Won’t someone take Ashland in? He is so good, he even lets the volunteers dress him up in a summer bowtie. He’s all dressed up and waiting to leave. Let’s not disappoint him, let’s not fail him. If you can foster or adopt Ashland, Message our page or email us at MustLoveDogsNYC@gmail.com for assistance. He’s neutered and ready to go.

*** NEW NYC ACC RATING SYSTEM ***
Dogs with Level 1 determinations are suitable for the majority of homes. These dogs are not displaying concerning behaviors in shelter, and the owner surrender profile (where available) is positive.
Dogs with Level 2 determinations will be suitable for adopters with some previous dog experience. They will have displayed behavior in the shelter (or have owner reported behavior) that requires some training, or is simply not suitable for an adopter with minimal experience.
Dogs with Level 3 determinations will need to go to homes with experienced adopters, and the ACC strongly suggest that the adopter have prior experience with the challenges described and/or an understanding of the challenge and how to manage it safely in a home environment. In many cases, a trainer will be needed to manage and work on the behaviors safely in a home environment.
