INTAKE DATE – 6/5/2019
So sweet, so shy, so singularly beautiful, SPARKLE looks like a duck out of water at the shelter. Her beauty is ethereal. Her stunning coloring, her kohl rimmed eyes, her gentleness of heart and spirit. She is simply lovely, inside and out, and she desperately wants to be back in a family home where she is loved, adored, and feels safe. Instead, she cuddles up behind a volunteer on a city stoop, seeking comfort. You see, this is not her first time at the shelter. Sparkle has been here before, not so very long ago, and she had hoped to never see this place again. Her heart hurts, and she wonders why the family who chose her, chose to send her back. Let’s get Sparkle out of the shelter before she ends up sick and on the list to die. Message our page or email us at MustLoveDogsNYC@gmail.com for assistance fostering or adopting Sparkle.

*** 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.
