Beautiful Mary was sitting quietly in her kennel watching me and willing me to take her out. No problem Miss Mary - the first thing she did when I leashed her was stand up to give me a hug and a kiss (love affectionate dogs), and then as soon as we were outside she relieved herself indicating she might be housetrained. Mary is super friendly with a constantly wagging tail and desire to make friends with everyone she sees. She is small and compact and oh so huggable. Mary was a little dirty so I gave her a sponge bath. Other than her wagging tail and attempts to kiss me as I wiped her down she stood there quietly as I lifted her legs, rubbed her belly down, basically touched her all over. After her ‘bath’ we went for a walk to the park. She pulls slightly on the leash but is very manageable. Mary seems to like other dogs, tail wagging appropriately as those we met. She posed for her photos like a pro, sitting when I asked her to and taking treats nicely. Mary defines “lover girl”. She is highly affectionate and ready for a home where she can snuggle with her new person forever. Ask to meet Mary today.

For more information on adopting please read the following:
DO NOT call the shelter and say you are adopting unless you truly intend on physically going to the shelter to adopt the dog. It ties up phones lines and is a waste of the staff’s time to explain the adoption procedure over the phone for someone who is purposely not going to show up. They need every free second of their time to answer calls, assist actual adopters, process intakes, and care for the animals. More importantly, they will note the dog’s file that an adopter is en route which will prevent an actual adopter from saving the dog. This is considered a “fake adoption” hold and that is how dogs fall through the cracks and end up being killed.
For more information on a particular dog, email email@example.com but ONLY if serious about adopting, and ONLY if you are able to GO TO the shelter in-person. Please do not email for status updates… the only thing you will accomplish is spamming their in boxes and causing REAL adopter emails to go un-noticed. Contact the NYC ACC at (212) 788-4000 for further automated instructions.
