TO BE KILLED - 7/14/2018
POSTER CORRECTION - Tigers ID# is 32451
<3 12 Year Young Senior Gentleman dreams of a retirement home & a family to love him….
At MLD we think there is nothing sadder than a senior dog or cat being dumped after years of being a devoted and loyal friend. But that’s exactly what has happened to Tiger, whose countenance is less tiger and more lamb. Gentle, calm, agreeable and sweet, he lumbers along by your side, happy for company, happy for a friend. We don’t yet have the details of his past, but if he was a family pet we can only imagine how sad and lost he must be at the shelter, surrounded by crying and barking dogs, and people who are strangers to him. Does he search every face for the one he loves? Does he hope that this is all just a terrible mistake and that they will come back soon to claim him? We can only guess at the contents of his heart, but we do know that we want to see this dignified and handsome frosty faced boy out of the shelter and back into a family home where he can live out his golden years surrounded by love. If you can give Tiger a soft place to land and all the love his heart can hold, please hurry and PRIVATE MESSAGE our page or email us at MustLoveDogsNYC@gmail.com for assistance. We all know the seniors can get sick very quickly and end up on the list. Let’s not let that happen to Tiger.
