If Faye isn’t “gettable,” we don’t know what dog is!
And the folks with Get A Bull rescue in Huntington, NY (that’s on Long Island) are keen on finding this beauty a very special home.
Faye is between 9 and 10 years old and found herself in a large municipal shelter after her owner went into a nursing home. She is in early-stage kidney disease, which is mostly managed via prescription diet at this time. This sweet, graying girl is also deaf.
Although found to be friendly with other dogs while at the shelter, Faye moved from her first foster’s home to another. She seems to be better suited as a solo dog. Of course, Get-A-Bull staffers are most interested in finding this silver-faced sweetie a forever home and will happily continue to cover her medical costs for life (that includes the prescription food!)
Faye is very friendly with humans, adults and kids! She is very affectionate and an easy-going girl around the house. This beautiful pibble also is house-trained and she often opts, entirely on her own, to hang out in her open crate where she feels very comfy.
She is truly special, say her rescuers and foster, and they’d love to see a special person give her a happy home!
Faye is currently in foster care in Massachusetts, but Get-A-Bull will happily adopt her to homes throughout the Northeast. Though they are based on Long Island, adopters in the New York metro and New England will be happily considered.
Give this gorgeous, graying girl a home – and if you can’t, share her!
A little more about Get A Bull in their own words….
“Get A Bull is a collaboration between a group of passion-driven animal lovers looking to make a difference in the lives of pit bull dogs in the New York Area. Our collective backgrounds in the area of animal rescue, animal shelters, dog training and veterinary medicine have given us special insight into the plight of the pit bull breed of dogs. We know these dogs and we know them to be just that, dogs. We have seen the impact that overpopulation, backyard breeding, and neglect has made on these dogs. We see that the shelters are filled mostly with pit bulls and that most good dogs don’t make it out alive due to lack of space. We know this is not the fault of the pit bull, but of humans who use and abuse them and continue to breed them. We also know that discrimination towards this breed by landlords, insurance companies, government and in the media, continues to make this an uphill battle. We want to bring to light that these are lovely family dogs that people should consider adopting. But we also know that adoption is only half the battle to helping them. Our goal is to match great dogs with great families but also to facilitate and promote spay/neuter in the communities, promote responsible dog ownership and to provide the resources and education needed to keep dogs with their families.”
