Dime: 11-year-old dog surrendered to Animal Control after lifetime of loyalty

Calm, affectionate and beautiful with just a little gray around her soft muzzle, the beautiful brindle pit bull mix named Dime scored a perfect '10' on her personality assessment.

When her former owner entered a homeless shelter, Dime was at the mercy of the system and wound up at Brooklyn's New York City Animal Care and Control. Unless she is rescued by Thursday, this loyal dog will be euthanized. In a truly heartbreaking emotional plea, a volunteer writes:

"Dime is a devoted dog, a loving dog, and for her to end up wadded into a cell like damp towels in a laundry basket is completely unacceptable. Nothing about the ACC's plans to kill Dime is acceptable either, but without someone giving her a new home, she really has no other option but to be dragged down that fatal hallway...Tomorrow is just a few short hours away, and Dime will live or die by what happens on her behalf, tonight."

According to her former owner, Dime is house trained, lived with one adult, gets along fine with children and strangers, but does not do well with other pets. During her evaluation however, Dime was relaxed when approached by the helper dog.

Let's face it; Dime deserves to be in a home where she can cuddle up in a snug bed, nibble treats from her owner's fingers, and be gently caressed as she dozes off for a well deserved nap.
