MICHAEL J – A1083514
Gone - 8-5-2016 Brooklyn
***GONE 08/05/16*** MICHAEL J NEEDS A NEW HOPE RESCUE AND YOU TO LIVE ANOTHER DAY! MICHAEL J was DUMPED due to the owner’s child having allergies and asthma. They had only kept this 1 year old for 4 months, after a neighbor gave him to them. They say he has not been around other dogs or cats. The ACC shows their stupidity, once again, after referring MICHAEL J to as “a dog.” He’s extremely fearful and not doing well in the shelter, but who can blame him? The ACC brands him with a RESCUE ONLY rating, making it even harder for this guy. But for you to FOSTER OR ADOPT it’s very simple… just contact a New Hope rescue and say you will be happy to FOSTER OR ADOPT MICHAEL J. His life depends on YOU!
