The four dogs taken away from Anthony Walker are coming along nicely and two of them are ready to find loving, caring homes. The third dog is nearly ready for adoption and a fourth dog is presently living in a foster home.
“The dogs are doing very well and are in much better health than when they arrived,” said Brad Shear, executive director of the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society. The dogs will have no lasting medical issues, Shear said.
The dogs are pit bull mixes and are about two or three years old.
"They will make great family dogs," says Shear.
Dr. Tara Estra, veterinarian at the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society has cleared the male called Gavin and a female named Neve for adoption. According to the Humane Society personnal, Neve is a high energy dog and will enjoy lots of exercise, whereas Gavin is a bit of a couch potato. Both dogs are friendly with each other, the animals at the shelter and the humans caring for them.
Archer will remain under the shelter’s care for a short while longer. He was kin and bones when he was rescued and the shelter is giving him lots of time to regain his health.
The fourth dog, a female named Chanel, is being fostered while she is still tending to her little family. Chanel gave birth to three puppies shortly after her rescue. All four will be up for adoption once her babies are weaned and Chanel is cleared to find a new home.
Walker, the dogs’ previous owner, has been charged with animal cruelty. He is the same man who abandoned three malnourished and abused put bull puppies last year near Arbor Hill railroad tracks.
