TO BE KILLED 5/2/19
People pick up puppies like they are stuffed animals, and just as easily dispose of them when they have the slightest sniffle. That’s what happened to poor HOPE, gotten at a “giveaway” only 4 months ago until her new parent suffered allergies and then Hope was shoved back into the shelter. Hope wonders if she will ever find her forever family, the love and stability she craves, the happy long years of playing with toys, taking long walks, and snuggling with people who make her an integral part of their lives and would find it unthinkable to just toss her away like garbage. Happy, friendly, playful, affectionate and mellow, her favorite thing was “being held.” Now she needs a new pair of arms to hold her. Will they be yours? Message our page or email us at MustLoveDogsNYC@gmail.com for assistance fostering or adopting Hope. She is spayed and eager to have her life begin.
A Volunteer Writes:
Hope couldn't be more aptly named and her beautiful eyes hold so much hope for the future in their soft, soulful depths. Hope that an adopter will see past her shy exterior to the playful girl inside. Hope that they'll notice how well she walks and follows commands and will admire her fetching skills. Hope that in her new home there'll be other pups to put her at ease and most of all, hope that she'll be loved, unconditionally and always. A family pet who previously lived in harmony with a toddler, she lights up like the sun when meeting other dogs and has been nothing but gentle and sweet toward volunteers lucky enough to spend time with her at the Care Center. The only creatures Hope doesn't seem to like are cats (she prefers chasing them) so a feline-free household is a must. To quote Emily Dickinson, 'hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all'. This brave girl's heartsong is her longing for a true forever family. Hope would love to fly away home with you, please don't make her wait another day...
