MAX – A1052730
Urgent 10-1-2015 Brooklyn
***GONE 10/01/15*** MAX IS MAD! Mad because he’s been dumped due to his previous owners’ arrest! The NEUTERED, 5 year old has been socialized around kids and cats and is gentle with them. But he’s not as happy with the people at the ACC! He’s fearful, although he did allow petting and interaction in a limited way. Just goes to show that with an EXPERIENCE pet parents’ love and understanding, he should be fine once used to NEW surroundings! PLEASE, offer to FOSTER or ADOPT MAX! He doesn’t deserve to be in a prison…just because his former owner is!
