Saint is an adorable brindle and white four-year-old spayed pit bull mix. Described by Brooklyn's New York City Animal Care and Control as bright and responsive, Saint can be a bit nervous and shy upon her first interview, but has never shown an ounce of aggression.
When Saint originally entered the sadness of the New York animal shelter system in August 2013, she had been surrendered because her owner was reported to have been ill. On Saint's "turn-in" record the owner stated:
"Saint is bright, intelligent & sensitive. She responds well to love and affection. I've had 3 1/2 great years with her. We enjoyed swimming, running and long walks in the neighborhood. I wish her destiny is good."
And then Saint's wish came true, because less than two weeks later, her owner came back to reclaim her beautiful dog. Something tragic happened however; on May 15, Saint was back at the shelter after being picked up as a stray found tied to a park bench. A volunteer writes:
"Saint was a well loved family member, and she is also a doll of a dog. Saint loves hanging out outside with a human companion. She loves cuddling, and she loves the sun on her face. She was at risk; she was returned to her owner and a rescue offered both training and dog walkers so that Saint could remain with her loved one. None of this was accepted and now months later, Saint is in the Brooklyn Center after being found tied to a bench. Avoidable? Certainly. Saint is a great dog and she deserves a great home."

For readers who do not follow Facebook or the animal advocates who share the plights of these dogs in danger of being put to sleep, please refer to the dog's identification number (A0975396) when calling the shelter:
"For more information on a particular dog, email email@example.com but ONLY if serious about adopting, and ONLY if you are able to GO TO the shelter in-person. Please do not email for status updates; the only thing you will accomplish is spamming the in-boxes and causing REAL adopter emails to go unnoticed. Contact the NYC ACC at (212) 788-4000 for further automated instructions."
