INTAKE DATE – 6/11/2019
Big, beefy, waggy and wonderful, Bambino has stolen our hearts. He is game for anything, as long as 1) you include him in it and 2) you are happy. Because all he wants is to show you the love, show how special you are, and show how grateful he is to have you be his friend. So it’s doubly heartbreaking to see such a precious pup in the shelter. Granted, the volunteers adore him and love to spend time with him, but this is not a life. Bambino belongs with a family, and given he seems to love other dogs (he’s a hit with the lady pups), we really want to see him out of the shelter ASAP and into someone’s loving arms. You won’t find a bigger cuddler, you won’t find a better friend. He is truly a gem – a 5 star pup! Please consider giving our little Bambino a home? Message our page or email us at MustLoveDogsNYC@gmail.com for assistance.
A staff member writes: “Take me out to the Care Center, take me out with the pets! Well coming down to ACC isn't the same as going to a ballgame but it's a sure fire home run when you meet Bambino. Our Babe certainly won't swat balls over the fence, but he will chase them and provide lots of fun with you. He is a sweet boy, looking for a new field, or should we say home to call his own. So root, root, root for Bambino - if he don't go home today it's a shame! Bambino is waiting for you patiently at the Staten Island Care Center, ready to be your new MVP - Most Valuable Pooch!”
A volunteer writes: “Bambino is such a good boy! I don't think he ever saw a playset or a pool before in his young life. Bambino thinks the pool is one big doggie water dish! He's available for adoption at SIACC.”
Bambino – pool or kisses? Both!
Bambino is so smart!

*** 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.
