Chunk Update

13 Jun

Yesterday, we shared a picture of a dog that we wanted to try to rescue from NYC’s public shelter. Well, we did it!



We’ve renamed him Chunk! We will be picking him up from the shelter in about an hour, and bringing him to our vet for quarantine since he is very sick.

However, we are still looking for a foster home, or better yet, an adopter for this handsome guy! He’s also very ill, and will need considerable medical care. If you can, please consider making a donation online towards his care.

Please email us at for more information about fostering or adopting Chunk!

    How big is he & what does he need medical attention for? Is he good with other dogs, children, cats, etc? More info. would be nice.

      He’s about 66 lbs, and has an advanced respiratory infection. It may have progressed to something a bit more serious, so we’re having him seen by a vet immediately and held for observation. He seems good with dogs, but we have not done a real interaction yet since he’s sick. Seems great with all people, but we have not had him around children yet. We’re limited in regards to information since we just rescued him today.

    So happy to hear he is safe! Great picture, and hope he is feeling better very soon.
