UODATE 9/15/15: After 14 months in our program, and almost four months homeless, Jasmine has been ADOPTED!
UPDATE – 11/16/14 : Jasmine is now fully recovered from her surgeries and is walking and running pain free! She has also completed her training program and is 110% ready to find her forever home. She is in residence with our trainers, CT K9 Services in Bethany, CT, and is loved by all who work with her. Jasmine had the fortune of being photographed by Sophie Gamand of Striking Paws for her Pitbull Flower Power project. Sophie captured our longest resident beautifully and we are so thankful for the generous donation of her time and talents! For almost four years Jasmine has waited patiently to find her way home – is it with you?
ABOUT JASMINE: Jasmine spent three years being picked over and cast aside in an upstate New York shelter. A staff and volunteer favorite, she couldn’t get up to greet visitors and often sat with her back to people while in her kennel, which turned potential adopters off. We were told she had extreme arthritis in her hind legs, but upon meeting her, we realized she was actually suffering from acute ligament tears in both of her hind leg ‘knees.’ We pulled Jasmine in June 2014 and she underwent the first of her two surgeries, a TPLO procedure, immediately. Jasmine recovered well and underwent her second surgery at the end of July, under the care of Dr. Daniel Spector of Fifth Avenue Veterinary Specialists in Manhattan. Jasmine is incredibly affectionate, loves humans and is well behaved. She is quiet and wiggly and always has a giant smile on her face. Since we pulled her into our rescue, Jasmine has bloomed, opened up and stolen the heart of every person she meets. She is spayed, house trained, UTD on all shots, weighs 42lbs. and is approximately 7 years old. She does not chase cats and is largely nonreactive to other dogs, able to walk on leash with them and coexist peacefully, though she prefers be the only pet in your home and the apple of your eye. If you would like to meet Jasmine and live in NY, NJ, VA, MD, CT, RI or MA, please contact us to request an adoption application.
Tanya is 7 1/2 years old, weighs approximately 50lbs. and is a healthy and beautiful brindle Am Staff/Mastiff mix. She is house trained and incredibly gentle and affectionate with people. Tanya is located in New York City and has adjusted beautifully to life outside the shelter. She tolerates being home alone well. If you have room in your home and heart to give this very special lady the home she has been waiting SEVEN YEARS for, please let us know!
UPDATE: May 24, 2014 – Tanya has been ADOPTED! Thank you all for thr support and encouragement. After 7 1/2 years homeless, Tanya has found the family she has been waiting her entire life for. We are thrilled!
