UPDATE: Egypt has been rescued and is making himself comfortable in his foster home thanks to the consistent amazing work of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. Please help this fine organization continue to help so many dogs by donating to their veterinarian expenses.
Many thanks to everyone for sharing and caring. You have made a difference again.
On Saturday, Egypt sat calmly by her owner’s side at the Brooklyn’s facility of New York City Animal Care and Control as she was being surrendered. The German shepherd and bully dog mix had no idea she would never see her family again; the only reason given why she was no longer wanted, after having been part of the family for the last ten years, was “household changes.”
On Friday, Egypt is scheduled to be euthanized; humane advocates are publicly begging for her life hoping she will be able to spend the holiday season in a soft bed with someone to love and care for her once again. A volunteer sadly writes: “Abandoned after 10 years of love and loyalty, she struggles to walk but does so with bravery and a stoicism that brings tears to our eyes. Her video will require you to have kleenex in hand, because you can see how sad, how lost she is….her little scarf limply hanging to the ground. Yet her wonderful spirit is not diminished, and she is so loving, affectionate and sweet to all she meets…” Egypt is described as completely house trained, loves children and gets along with other dogs, however she is afraid of cats as one tough kitty roughed the pooch up some time in her past. A Facebook page for this girl can be found here. Additional information can be found here.
The dog’s medical information indicates she is morbidly obese and should be checked for hypothyroidism. Her behavioral test by the shelter staff, shows her demeanor to be consistently sweet and tolerant. Because of her difficulty walking and balance, it is recommended Egypt be placed with an experienced adopter.
Please note information for dogs scheduled to be euthanized is only published the previous evening. Time is short for this sweet, old gal, but miracles happen all the time. Please share Egypt’s tragic story with rescue organizations, your family, friends and social media contacts. Help Egypt find a soft place to lie and rest and a new friend to bring her back to optimum health.
