*** CODE RED - LAST & FINAL CHANCE FOR A PERFECT, PERFECTLY SWEET BOY! *** THOR (AKA NERO) DIES 6/13 IN MANHATTAN ACC! How many times do we have to say this dog is perfect? How many times do we and the volunteers need to beg for his life? How many times do we have to say how gentle, sweet, and well behaved he is and how ADORED. Everyone loves him so, he's been given extra time -- we see his worth ….the question is, do you?
Thor was adopted in March and then returned in June. And with a new name -- NERO. But If he could sing, he'd be singing the old Stevie Wonder Song, "I never dreamed you'd leave in summer.....why didn't you stay?" Such a good, sweet, gentle, and yes -- breathtakingly MAGNIFICENT boy. He's such a gentle soul. He craves to be near you, he just wants love. He knows commands, is good with other dogs, and we can't imagine why he should have to die on 6/11 and why his so called adoptive family of two months is making outlandish accusations. Veteran Volunteer Evelyn is flabbergasted - points out there is zero proof and his former caretaker is even posting on his thread about what a wonderful, fabulous dog he is and that it killed her to have to give him up because of the landlord - please read and listen to the people who know him. He is a good boy, a loving, gentle boy, a boy who deserves better, who should not be killed because of a bad adoption. There is no vetting process for adopters at the NYCACC, so who knows what kind of family he went to. In a loving, safe, home this boy will flourish! Everyone who truly knows him, loves him and he has been an exceptionally well behaved, loving, good pup at the shelter!
A volunteer writes: "I was not too sure if I should take Thor out... A big guy, tall, well built, strong looking and mighty gorgeous. I might not be up to snuff. But he looked so sweet. It was a go! I never regretted it! Thor is a dream to spend time with, a pleasant walker, likely house trained, a very obedient pooch, a perfect sitter, a paw shaker, right and left and a big tail wagger. He loves company and more recently, I discovered that he enjoys hugs and kisses. Nearing other dogs is no problem and I heard that in playgroups with his peers, he was well behaved. Our Thor is all "suave", gentle in his manners and at times, almost timid. What a great companion he will make to the new owner who will make him a beloved pet. Come and meet wondrous Thor at the Manhattan Care Center!
