GONE 04/11/15 – JULIUS – A1031641 – BROOKLYN, NY
“ET TU BRUTE” is what JULIUS could say to his former owner……A simple neuter and a visit to the vet could solve most if not all the problems listed in JULIUS’ bio tonight. BUT JULIUS’ OWNER DID NONE OF THAT!! Just decided to dump JULIUS at the first convenient place which unfortunately happened to be the ACC….now JULIUS is scheduled to die because of his irresponsible owner. JULIUS IS ONLY A YEAR AND A HALF OLD. He needs a much more competent owner or foster than he has had. THIS BOY WILL BLOSSOM IN THE RIGHT HANDS!! OFFER TO FOSTER OR ADOPT HIM TONITE!!
