They were called the “Club of Five” – all family dogs found lying next to their deceased owner. No one knows how long the dogs had been left alone. On Saturday afternoon, the last of the “Club of Five” is slated to be humanely euthanized at Manhattan’s New York City Animal Care Center.
Thus far three of the five dogs have been euthanized; one lucky pup was just adopted. When the dogs were brought into the shelter, they were all separated. Sisters Tricia and Danicka (they were frightened) and brother Ranger (no one came to adopt him) are no longer alive. Now Bruin, who hoped to have found someone to love, may never see tomorrow.
A volunteer writes:
“I HAVE MET THE CLUB OF FIVE, MOST OF US HAVE EXPERIENCED AND LOVED ….TO PIECES. NOBODY IS PERFECT AND HE IS NOT, JUST LIKE YOU AND ME.JUST LIKE HIS 4 FRIENDS, HE IS DOG REACTIVE BUT WHO KNOWS WHAT WAS HAPPENING IN THAT APARTMENT BEFORE AND AFTER THE DEATH OF THEIR OWNER …”
And then there is only one.
“BRUIN HAS A LOT OF PLUSES. HE IS SUPER HANDSOME. THAT COAT OF HIS IS GORGEOUS LIKE A RARE EXOTIC WOOD. AND HIS EYES, TWO ENTHRALLING AMBER GEMS. HE IS SO MUSHY, LOVES CARESSES, CLOSENESS WITH A CARETAKER. WHAT A FACE! HE IS NOT REALLY A PLAYER BUT JUST ENJOYS TO STAY NEARBY OR VERY CLOSE TO HIS PERSON. HE IS A BENCH BOY! HE PULLS SOME ON THE LEASH. HE LIKES TO CHASE SQUIRRELS AND MAY BE CATS MIGHT NOT BE THE BEST COMPANIONS??”
Volunteers love this dog. If only someone could step up and help. Please share Bruin’s last wish with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts.
