Adoptable Pittie of the Week: Tigger

1 Jul

Tigger was rescued from a neglectful family, and now he needs a new forever home. He is currently staying at a doggy daycare facility in New Jersey, and is attending training classes once a week.

He is already housebroken, neutered, microchipped, and has all shots. Tigger is a healthy, playful dog. He is good with other dogs and children.

Tigger is the perfect dog, however, he does have very slight separation anxiety. He wasn’t given any attention by his previous owners. He was tied to a door, with no give, rarely walked, watered, or fed. He would lie in his own urine for hours at a time, until someone “felt” like cleaning it up. Now he is happy with all the attention he gets, but fears he will be abandoned when you leave him alone, and expresses himself by barking, but has not been destructive.

Tigger needs to go to an owner who can work with his anxiety to help him overcome it. As the days go by, he seems to get better, but once moved from this environment, it could return. He was on medication for this as well, which helped him a great deal. He is not yet crate trained, but this does not mean that it is not possible for him to eventually enjoy being crated.

Adoptable Pittie of the Week: Georgia

24 Jun

Georgia is our special adoptable this week. She’s a dog that’s been dealt a hard hand. We first met Georgia (then named Sandy) when she was abandoned in front of a restaurant on Thanksgiving, 2011.  The poor, scrape-ridden girl was cold and scared. A local rescuer placed her in the ‘hood. Her new mom named her Georgia and quickly showed her the world isn’t so bad, if you meet the right people!

Georgia’s mom loved this little low-rider so much! The shy, scared pittie came out of her shell and became the biggest wigglebutt! Even now, with losing her mom and so many changes, Miss Georgia always has a smile!

Once again, Georgia needs to help of a village…her mom recently died unexpectedly. Bully Project is hoping to find a foster, or better yet, a forever home for Georgia.

She adores people, treats, walks and snuggles on the couch. She would do best as a single pet.

Chunk

Chunk is still looking for a foster or an adopter. If interested, please email us at bullyprojectnyc@gmail.com.

Adoptable Pittie of the Week: Chunk

17 Jun

66 lbs of love! That’s Chunk!

Chunk

Chunk

This boy is as easy-going as you could ever imagine a dog being. He simply wants to be around people, and he’s totally content. Though he may look like a big, athletic dog (which he is, of course), he enjoys spending most of his time getting head scratches, but scratches, eating grass, and getting as close to people as possible.

Chunk

Chunk

He is approximately four years old, which means he’s already fully developed. So, what you see is what you get. You don’t have to worry about this boy’s personality changing radically, and he’s as big as he’s going to get.

Chunk

Chunk

Chunk is currently recovering from a bad case of kennel cough, and as soon as he’s healthy, he will be neutered. He is already fully vaccinated and microchipped, and ready for love.

Chunk

Chunk

He seems to be friendly with dogs, but considering his illness is contagious, we are limiting his interactions greatly. It seems like he wants to play, but he is getting frustrated with not being able to actually do so. Hopefully, we can start to let him interact more soon!

Chunk

We’re still looking for a foster home for Chunk, or better yet, an adopter. If you’re interested in being either of those for this sweet Chunk of love, please email us at bullyprojectnyc@gmail.com.

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!

Chunk

Chunk

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 bullyprojectnyc@gmail.com for more information about fostering or adopting Chunk!

Adoptable Pittie of the Week: Pistachio

20 May

Hello! My name is Pistachio from Liberty Humane Society. It’s so incredibly nice to meet you!

Pistachio

Pistachio

As you can see from my pictures, I am a handsome chap who loves giving out hugs to my favorite human people. I have so much warmth and affection inside of me that I need to share it with the world!

My human friends at the shelter think I am about a year and a half old. That’s a good age, right? I still have the energy and drive of a young dog, but I’m also old enough to be calm, gentle, and well behaved. In fact, I’m so gentle that I would likely make a wonderful dog for a family with even very small children. I would love to have a family of my own. I bet I would get lots of hugs then!

Pistachio

Pistachio

I’m waggy, happy, and comfortable meeting all sorts of human people, young or old, big or small. I approach everyone assuming that they will want to pet me. Who wouldn’t want to pet me? Hee!

I have already learned how to sit on command, and I am hard at work on learning other neat tricks. I pull a bit on my leash, but I’m so smart and eager to please that I’m sure I can learn to break this habit very quickly. I bet you and I would make a great student-teacher team!

Pistachio

Pistachio

I’ve met male and female doggies here at the shelter. I was tolerant of these doggies, but I didn’t seem terribly interested in playing with them. Maybe I just need more time to warm up? If you have your own doggie at home, please bring him or her over to the shelter and we can see how we relate to each other.

Pistachio

Pistachio

Here’s how a special human friend described me:

“Not only does Pistachio have the sweetest face, but he has the sweetest disposition. He is very mild tempered and not big on long walks. He’s perfect for the laid back owner! Pistachio goes out, does his business, and is ready to go back and snuggle with his caretaker. He’s the perfect dog for a low-maintenance (or apartment) owner!”

Pistachio

Pistachio

I am one total lovebug who will make your days brighter and happier. If you hire me to be your new best friend, I will make it my job to keep you happy and smiling! I promise!

Thank you for reading about me! Hope to see you soon! Woof, Pistachio xoxo

Adoptable Pittie of the Week: Marilyn the Monkey

29 Apr
Marilyn the Monkey

Marilyn the Monkey

This past weekend, we met this adorable girl at the public shelter. While there, she had received the best possible rating on her behavior evaluation and was even being used a “helper dog” to evaluate other dogs’ behaviors around dogs. Her calm demeanor is very uncommon for a puppy of about 10 months, which really endeared her to our hearts and compelled us to rescue her.

Marilyn the Monkey

Marilyn the Monkey

Marilyn LOVES to play, especially with tennis balls. In fact, we had to take the toys away from her so that we could spend some time with her. Apart from playing with toys, she’s very food motivated, has great natural impulse control and is super smart. You could teach this little girl pretty much anything, and she could possibly even develop, as she grows older, into a wonderful therapy dog.

Marilyn the Monkey

Marilyn already seems completely house broken and crate trained. We haven’t heard her bark at all so far. She has great behavior around other dogs, at turns hanging out calmly and other times, playing goofily. She has even has a cat hiss at her, and she simply turned around and walked away, so she may even be a great addition to a home with a kittie.

Marilyn the Monkey

Marilyn is already up to date on all of her vaccinations and is microchipped. She currently has slight kennel cough, so once she is well, we will have her spayed and she will officially be ready for her forever home. In the meantime, if you would like to apply to adopt her, you can email us at bullyprojectnyc@gmail.com.
