Update: Liberty was adopted!
A ten-year-old Chihuahua named "Liberty," has until noon on Saturday, August 30, to be adopted from the New York Animal Care and Control facility in Manhattan. The senior dog was surrendered to the facility by an individual who stated that the dog was a stray.
Liberty has proven himself to be an easy-going, friendly dog who has no adverse behavior notes on file. The following information was reported after Liberty's behavior evaluation on August 23:
Liberty walks calmly on leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment - soft body, wagging tail. He was calm and relaxed during handling. He had a low body position during the tag test, but followed the assessor at the end of the leash. He was not interested in toys or rawhide. Liberty approached other dog with friendly/playful body language. Liberty did not show any concern during the behavior assessment.
Liberty is a dog who simply needs a chance, but he has run out of time. According to the Facebook page, Urgent Death Row Dogs, Liberty must be adopted or rescued by noon on Saturday, or he will be put down. Liberty's Petharbor profile has already been pulled offline...
