A Best Friend, An Angel for Life...
Care Bear is a handsome purebred male poodle roughly 8 years old, who comes to us from Animal Care and Control of NYC, where he was turned in as a stray in terrible condition. As we all know, poodles require regular grooming, but it's clear that no one was looking after our Care Bear, not for a good long while at least. He arrived in rescue an unkempt, filthy and matted mess, such that we could not even be entirely sure of his breed. Underneath it all we discovered a butterball poodle, so what we can say for sure is that he was at the very least fed. Sadly, Care Bear is now suffering from a severe upper respiratory infection, as is common among older dogs who pass through the shelter system. They are just not strong enough to ward off all the airborne illness that inevitably finds its way there. Once he recovers, Care Bear will be neutered, microchipped, fully vaccinated and heartworm tested. He will also be treated to a dental cleaning as well as a professional grooming and will be sporting a new leash and collar at the time of going home. Care Bear is a very loving dog who will make an excellent family pet and should prove trustworthy with children.
