Chipotle dies tomorrow. She is at the New York Animal Care and Control, and no matter how sweet, how well-behaved, how lovely dogs are, they are killed when their time is up.
Chipotle is an example of a fabulous dog who will die. She has had less then two weeks in the shelter. She is an amazing dog. When the police found her, she was scared. But when they opened the car door, she jumped right in. When they arrived at the shelter, Chipotle was afraid to get out of the car, but when offered a walk and some treats, she came right out. During the admission process, she was nervous but warmed up to the counselors — especially when offered treats. She allowed all handling — even frightened as she was in the strange surroundings.
Many volunteers hate the place because wonderful dogs die there daily. Chipotle is an example of a wonderful dog who has less then 24 hours to be saved. Or she dies.
A volunteer wrote about her:
Chipotle was surely named in an ironic way because she is as sweet as sugar! She has bashful moments, but is SUCH a wiggly, playful, loving little lady. She is very easy to walk on leash, seems housebroken, and already knows “sit” and “paw” (but her response rate isn’t quite 100%!).
She takes treats like a charm school grad, loves to play with squeaky toys (she bounds after them and puts them right in my lap to throw again), and has done very well in our playgroups with other dogs (she’s even been used to help greet newcomers!). She softly and quickly wags her tail when greeting staff members through a fence, thoroughly sniffs my face before planting gentle kisses on my nose, and very frequently checks in to make sure she’s doing everything right when we’re out and about (she always is!).
She is an absolute darling and ready to bring her sweet, mild-mannered, endearing ways to your place…please come meet her at Brooklyn ACC!
She is spayed, and they fixed her cherry eye problem when she was spayed. She is estimated to still be a puppy — around one year old. She arrived at the shelter less then two weeks ago as a stray. She has been placed on the “at risk” list, which means she is on the list to be killed.
Chipotle seems to get along with other dogs. She is gentle and submissive. The fact that she has been used as a greeter dog attests to her wonderful, outgoing personality. Like most puppies, Chipotle is energetic and playful. She would do well in almost any situation.
