TO BE KILLED - 1/14/2019
A super sweet, gentle, doe like boy – all gangly, sweet, bouncy, awkward, gentle, and polite puppy playfulness. DOC is a gem. He is great with people, great with other dogs, eager to please and easy to love. Just watch his videos. He has such an innocence about him, a vulnerability. He has no idea how dangerous and precarious his position is and that at any moment, if he contracts the dreaded shelter cold, he will be on the list to die. A cuddler, a hugger, a baby who has only reached his first birthday and looks at the world with wonder. Don’t let his life be cut short and his last days be spent in a cage. Hurry and save his life. Message our page right now or email us at MustLoveDogsNYC@gmail.com right now for assistance fostering or adopting him.

What's up with Doc? Two perky ears, one wagging tail and lots of bouncy hugs and play bows! He's a very curious puppy who explores life with all his senses and when not cavorting with four-legged friends in playgroup you'll find him eagerly snuffling his way to the bottom of everything from a leaf pile in the park to the bag of treats in your pocket. Doc knows commands for come and sit, appears quite house trained and has no problem sharing his toys or treats so he makes for a wonderfully fun play date. He's a strong leash puller, especially when greeting other dogs, but always eager to please. With a little more training I'm sure his walking manners can be polished to the same sparkling perfection as his social skills. Handsome Doc is ready to start taking names and breaking hearts as soon as possible and he'd love to be your new sidekick. Ask to meet him today!
