Animal ID: A1115530Bajie (male)

Maltese Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    SENIOR SWEETHEART!! OLDER GENTLEMAN!! CUTE AND PLAYFUL!! WANTS TO LOVE AND BE LOVED!! PLEASE CONSIDER THIS SWEET BOY!! . SAVE BAJIE! Public must #adopt or #foster (all expenses paid) this publicly adoptable dog BEFORE 12PM ET tomorrow 6-21-2017; otherwise he will be killed at #Manhattan Center. . My name is #BAJIE. My Animal ID is #A1115530. I am a male white #maltese and #westhighland mix. The shelter thinks I am about 10 YEARS old. I came in the shelter as a #stray on 6-16-2017. I am on the kill list due to perianal mass (r/o benign vs. malignant); previously traumatized tail moderate dental and periodontal dz fur thinning: r/o ... (Read More)underlying possibility of #Cushingsdisease is a treatable condition with lifelong meds and monitoring ideally. . BACKGROUND: He was found walking on a street three days ago in the Bronx. The finder felt bad for Bajie and took him in in hopes an owner would come forward. The #finder isn't able to keep Bajie any longer due to having another dog and working too many hours. They also stated Bajie appears semi #housebroken as he used wee wee pads and left #wellbehaved when left alone. Bajie wasn't around children or other dogs. The finder stated Bajie allowed them to place their dogs leash/collar on him and walk him to our BXAC location. During intake Bajie was #sweet & allowed all handling. Bajie didn't seem to mind being picked up/held at all and was placed into a kennel with ease which was hard for me as I wanted to keep him in my arms. . A volunteer wrote: Bajie is a 10 year old little guy with a lot of #spunk and #sweetness packaged away in his little body. As soon as Bajie saw me, he came to the front of his cage to greet me. I asked him if he wanted to take a walk, and after a wag of his tail, we were off. Little Bajie is not a fan of going up and downstairs, but that means you just get an excuse to pick him up and #love on him while you head out the door! Once outside, Bajie was ready to go-he walks well on a leash with a little spring in his step. He is a sweet older #gentleman who is living proof that age ain't nothing but a number! . If SERIOUSLY interested in #adopting or #fostering and either LOCAL to #NewYork or from NE US, email helpdogs and their volunteers will guide you through the process. (Less)

Animal ID: A1115481Preciosa (female)

Maltese Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    UPDATE: Preciosa is now confirmed as Safe. She has been rescued in Brooklyn by Trailways to Heaven Rescue. Thank you @trailways_to_heaven_rescue for saving this precious dog's life. Please contact them for donations. A foster or adopter is still needed so please contact them if interested!! Previous Post: SWEET GIRL SCARED AT THE SHELTER!! GOOD WITH KIDS AND OTHER DOGS!!

Public must #adopt or #foster (all expenses paid) this rescue-only dog BEFORE the strict #deadline of 12PM ET tomorrow 6-19-2017; otherwise he will be killed at ... (Read More)#Brooklyn Center. . My name is #PRECIOSA. My Animal ID #A1115481. I am a female brown and white #maltese mix. The shelter thinks I am about 6 YEARS old. I came in the shelter as an OWNER SUR on 06/15/2017 due to no pets allowed. . Preciosa has been #fearful and has #avoided interaction since coming into the care center, and due to this behavior we were unable to complete a handling assessment. . Basic Information: I have a limited profile because Anthony Bradford seemed intoxicated; he came in to surrender Preciosa and A1115479 (Dino). Mr. Bradford told me that he had the dogs for two days; he received them from an #anonymous person whom he did not mention. He stated that he needed to surrender because he was moving and could not take the animals with him. . Socialization: Owner states that Preciosa is #friendly with strangers; she has spent time with children 5, 7, and 13 years old. Preciosa is #relaxed, #respectful and #affectionate with them. When playing with adults and children Preciosa is #gentle. Preciosa has living history with Dino (#A1115479). During Admissions: Preciosa seems to have a #mammary gland. She was laying down during intake she seemed a little #lethargic; not wanting to walk at times .Preciosa allowed handling and having her picture taken. . RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Rescue will partner with the adopter or foster. No children (under 13). Place with a New Hope partner -Preciosa has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has allowed only minimal handling since intake. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home. . If SERIOUSLY interested in #adopting or #fostering and either LOCAL to #NewYork or From NE US, email helpdogs and their volunteers will guide you through the process. (Less)
