In July, this writer's annual list of Birthday Dogs was published. What are Birthday Dogs? They are the pick of shelter dogs most in need of a home at the time and who, if adopted, would be the best birthday present of all.
There were successes. Almost all of the dogs were adopted. The last two, however, lingered. Sadly, one of the dogs, Peepa, did not make it out of the shelter alive. The fate of the other, Desiree, was uncertain when a number of dogs were killed due to overcrowding at the Bridgeport Animal Shelter.
The good news is that Desiree is still alive. The bad news is that she is still very much in need of a home.
At approximately two years old, Desiree has spent just about half of her short life incarcerated. An energetic, playful and happy girl, Desiree knows some obedience and is eager to please. She is a petite princess, full of personality. Surely she won't take up too much room on your couch, but given the chance, she will steal your heart. Her only requirement is to go to a home without cats.
If you are considering adopting a dog, please visit Desiree and see for yourself what a wonderful little lady she is. For more information, contact the Bridgeport Animal Shelter at (203) 576-7727 or email email@example.com.
