Almost Adoptable Pittie of the Week: Baci

29 Oct

This past weekend, we rallied the troops and took a somewhat impromptu trip to Animal Care & Control to meet a dog there at the behest of one of our rescue friends. She had spent some time with a dog there named Sarita, and just adored her. But her rescue didn’t have space accommodate her, so she needed someone else to help Sarita if they could. That’s where we come in. Meet Bully Project‘s new rescue, Baci!

Baci

Baci’s another one of those dogs with a great temperament. She loves people, loves to play with toys (and give them up when she’s asked), loves to play with other dogs and is unfazed by all of the distractions and craziness of the city. Baci is a “starter dog”: good for anyone from first time dog owners to experienced ones.

As you can see, Baci has double cherry eye, an inflammation of the glands just inside the eyes. On top of that, she also has kennel cough. So right now, she is living at a veterinary hospital in isolation so that she can recover from the kennel cough and not infect any other animals. Once she’s recovered from that, we will perform surgery to correct the cherry eyes and have her spayed at the same time. Once both conditions have subsided, Baci will officially be available for adoption.

Baci

Baci is about one and a half years old and weigh about 45 lbs. She’s fully grown and has the perfect energy level for any kind of home: she loves to play but when we ask her to settle down, she obeys and calms down very easily. She already knows several commands including sit, shake with both paws, and down and seems to be house broken and crate trained. She is also already fully vaccinated and microchipped. So literally the moment she comes out of surgery, she will be ready to go to a new forever home.

But we do need your help: the surgery to correct Baci’s cherry eyes will not be cheap. Neither will the costs for the isolation boarding at the vet’s office. If you can, please consider making a donation online at bullyproject.org to help us cover some of Baci’s medical costs so that she can get into a home as quickly as possible.

And of course, if you or anyone you know might be interested in having a wonderful new dog like Baci, please email us at bullyprojectnyc@gmail.com.

    Love the last photo!!!! And re Baci being “unfazed by all of the distractions and craziness of the city,” she has nerves of steel. While she was being walked through the West Village yesterday, a crazy/drunk/mean/sketchy man walked RIGHT into her head on, got tangled up with her leash and tried to keep going …. and what did Baci do? NOTHING. NADA. ZILCH. Such an amazing reaction that speaks volumes about just how awesome she is.
