Friend of mine very good person in need.
Glenda Dale Stephens had Breast Cancer. She just had a Double Mastectomy on July 7, 2015. She has since had to have another surgery to remove the Sentinel Lymph Nodes on left side because they found Cancer cells. She may possibly have to have Chemo or Radiation. She is still in a lot of pain. Gl...

A volunteer writes:
Shy Roxie is with us as her owners are moving to a place not allowing large dogs. She lived and played with other canines (small), is known to be friendly to children and strangers (although she would be timid at first) and would know a number of commands. She is said to be house trained which we did verify. Roxie is wary at the care center. She is at the back of her arrival kennel although she accepts my leash. She walks slowly, the tail between her legs and acts submissively. She is trying very hard to be the good girl she truly is, comes when I call her, sits without me asking and looks at me with almost pleading eyes. Her face is strained into a smile. Help was on the way, though. A very dear household greeter we have at the care center, Ebony, entered the adjacent pen. Roxie came to meet her. No more tail between the legs, no more drooling. Roxie felt so much better to meet a friendly peer. She was not alone anymore. I was happy for her and hopeful that time will allow Roxie to open up more and allow her to meet a great new owner or family.Roxie is at the Manhattan Care Center. Come and meet her soon.

URGENT. MAX has been at the shelter for 6 weeks and has been patiently awaiting his hero
Manhattan Center

MAX – A1028693
* AVERAGE HOME *
  #nydeathrowdogs  
MALE, BLACK / WHITE, AM PIT BULL TER MIX, 1 yr, 1 mo
OWNER SUR – EVALUATE, NO HOLD Reason PERS PROB
Intake condition EXAM REQ Intake Date 02/24/2015, From NY 10459, DueOut Date 02/24/2015,

Medical Behavior Evaluation GREEN
Medical Summary scan negative flea comb negative- treated with acitvyl male intact relaxed during exam
Weight 71.0

A volunteer writes:
Surrendered due to personal problems, when asked what kind of home would be good for Max we were told “a family with children to play with”. Max is a low rider meatball, big in girth on short little legs. Low key, sweet and gorgeous, he showed off his housetraining skills as soon as we were out the door. He lived with two adults, gets along with everyone including children, likes female dogs but not males, is crate trained, housetrained, knows ‘sit’, ‘lie down’, and loves to play fetch. His leash manners are lovely, so easy to walk as he responds to my slightest move. Laying his head in my lap he snorts with pleasure as I caress him, closing his eyes as he gives into my loving, and reaching up to give me some kisses. His tail wags gently as we spend time together… he’s so quietly affectionate and soft I just want to hug him and assure him he’ll have a new family to love. With another dog later in the day, Max is quiet, happy to have company and finally engages in a bit of play. Watching this little meatball play is a delight! Hopping back into his kennel when it was time, he wagged his tail softly as I gave him a kiss goodbye. Max is awesome and is hoping to find a new family to love. Come meet him today.

A Volunteer Wrote:
Max deserves an ode to patience and kindness, or at least his own Thesaurus link to those words. He sits so dearly in his kennel in the hallway, unperturbed by the constant comings and going of other dogs, just waiting for his turn. And his gratitude when it is! He is all kisses and tail wags to people and other canines. He walks so gracefully on a leash, appears house trained, and we cannot imagine a home he would not make better by his loving presence in it. Max was on his way to adoptions and all the attention he deserved but alas has caught a cold so won’t get his star turn, unless a miracle happens and you turn out to be his North, his West, his chance. He deserves it so greatly. Please, come meet Max and open your heart and home to him! We are rooting so hard for him we’re giving the Bronx cheer a run for it’s money!

A volunteer writes (as told by Max):
Hi y’all – I’m Max, affectionately referred to as the little tank. Don’t let my small size fool you – I have a terrific personality, love people and cuddling. I like most dogs and even though I sometimes don’t want to play with every dog I meet, I’m happy to share my space with them. I like treats, giving kisses, walks, being outside to go potty, playing with a ball, eating a treat and snuggling. Some people call me a meatball, a small bulldozer but I’m fine with that as long as they call me. I can be serious if you need me to, like for pictures or something, but I’d rather be smiling and wagging my tail. I’m always happy to make new friends so come meet me and let’s be friends. Maybe even forever? I’d like that.

BEHAVIOR: AVERAGE HOME
Max walks calmly on leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body, low wag. He was calm and relaxed during handling. Max was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. He did not resist being handled while eating, and was easily pushed out of the food bowl. He was not interested in toys or rawhide. Max rushed in quickly during the dog-dog test, but showed no aggression.
Max was surrender to us. According to his previous owner he used to live with two adults. The owner mentioned that he is friendly around children and strangers. The owner also stated that “he gets along well with female dogs but does not like male dogs” Max did not show any concern during the behavior assessment. The behavior department feels that he can go to an Average home.
Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture.
Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (may need coaxing to approach.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor.
Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw.
Squeeze2: 1 . Dog gently pulls back his paw.
Food: 1. Dog calmly allows the food to be moved, follows the dish, but does not interfere with the dish’s movement. Dog’s body is soft and loose, eyes soft, tail neutral. He lifts his head when hand is pushed against his cheek.
Toy 1: No interest.
Rawhide: 1. No interest.
Dog – dog 2. Dog approaches the helper dog by rushing in with his tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, and lip long

Two Rednecks, Jim and Dave, are sitting at their favorite bar, drinking beer. Jim turns to Dave and says, ‘You know, I’m tired of going through life without an education. Tomorrow I think I’ll go to the Community College and sign up for some classes.’
Dave thinks it’s a good idea, and the two leave.
The next day, Jim goes down to the college and meets Dean of Admissions, who signs him up for the four basic classes: Math, English, history, and Logic.
‘Logic?’ Jim says. ‘What’s that?’
The dean says, ‘I’ll give you an example. Do you own a weed eater?’
‘Yeah.’
‘Then logically speaking, because you own a weed eater, I think that you would have a yard.’
‘That’s true, I do have a yard.’
‘I’m not done,’ the dean says. ‘Because you have a yard, I think logically that you would have a house.’
‘Yes, I do have a house.’
‘And because you have a house, I think that you might logically have a family.’
‘Yes, I have a family.’
‘I’m not done yet. Because you have a family, then logically you must have a wife. And because you have a wife, then logic tells me you must be a heterosexual.’
‘I am a heterosexual. That’s amazing, you were able to find out all of that because I have a weed eater.’
Excited to take the class now, Jim shakes the Dean’s hand and leaves to go meet Dave at the bar He tells Dave about his classes, how he is signed up for Math, English, History, and Logic.
‘Logic?’ Dave says, ‘What’s that?’
Jim says, ‘I’ll give you an example. Do you have a weed eater?’
‘No.’
‘Then you’re a queer.’
