Update 1/13/14: Rescued by Posh Pets Rescue - great work!
Within the last 30 minutes, the Facebook page Urgent Part 2 - Urgent Death Row Dogs, posted a list of dogs who have moments left to live.
Among the dogs on the list is a 12-year-old Labrador retriever mix named "Max," who was surrendered because his owner cited "personal problems."
Notes about Max's behavior from two days ago state:
Max's previous owner he is house trained, has lived with four adults and one teenager and gets along well with children and strangers. Max pulls on the leash and was sociable toward the handler during the assessment - soft body. He was tense during handling, but had soft body language. He was distracted and focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag interaction.
Max did not like the fake hand that was used to see if he is protective of his food dish however.
Notes taken upon Max's intake state:
Animal’s Name: MAX WHY ARE YOU BRINGING THIS DOG IN? Medical RELATIONSHIP He’s old – I’ve known him his whole life
Max is justifiable terrified at the facility - he just lost his home and his family and his future is in jeopardy.
Max is out of time. Per the Facebook page which is trying to save lives at the New York Animal Care and Control:
Our dogs only have 30 minutes before they will be gone forever.... please share one last time and help get them out! Contact a rescue or reserve on the NYC AC&C website if you can assist.
Max is located at the Brooklyn facility. His ID# is A0989787.
