Update 6/9/14: Ivory is safe!!
Ivory, aka "Laura," is just two years of age, but without help, this may be the last weekend that she is alive. Ivory has been at the New York Animal Control facility in Manhattan since May 24 and in that short time, she has endeared herself to the facility's volunteers.
A volunteer wrote the following words about this gorgeous dog:
She's all smiles and wagging tail, thrilled to be leashed for a walk. Going potty as soon as we're out the door tells me she's likely housetrained, and then she showed off lovely leash manners as we walked to the park.
She has a perfect figure in a coat that's well groomed and clean. Low key, gentle and calm, she seems to like dogs of all sizes, wagging her tail in appropriate greeting to all we meet. She has an adorable habit of stopping and crouching down a bit when she sees birds, watching quietly until they fly away.
She then looks up at me with a smile as if to say...'wow, that's cool isn't it....they get to fly...". Ivory was fine being tethered for some photos, posed like a super model, sat when I asked her to and took some reward treats gently. If your ideal companion is low key, calm and gentle, with a wagging tail and smiling face you must come meet our Ivory.
Ivory has no glaring behavior issues - she is simply a happy, friendly dog who desperately needs a home before she loses her life.
According to the Facebook page, Urgent Death Row Dogs, June 8 (Sunday) is Ivory's last day.
Please take a moment to network Ivory's information - she is relying on the kindness of strangers right now.
