Sweet, gentle “perfect” dog to be killed in Brooklyn, NY


Update: She is safe with Second Chance Rescue!

A sweet, virtually perfect dog sits on death row in Brooklyn, NY, because her owners moved and dumped her to die at the shelter. Sensi lived with kids and a small dog — she loves everyone. The owner said,

“Sensi does not have any behavior issues.”

In fact, this beautiful dog is gentle with adults and kids. She is relaxed and respectful around children. She lived with a small dog and played with the dog. She was crated for up to 12 hours at a time. She is beautifully housetrained.

She is also not destructive in the house. In short, this is a darling family dog. But in the open access shelter, an owner surrender is not given much time. Watch this adorable dog’s video below and see how affectionate she it.

She was temperament tested at the shelter. The following information was posted:
