URGENT: NYC pit bull abandoned in a snow storm needs home [Thursday, Jan. 13th, 2011|12:16 pm]
The richest girl in town.
A couple of guys in New York are trying to find a home for this beautiful girl who was found freezing to death out in a blizzard. 
 
 
"OK folks, I know this is a long shot, but here goes…

This morning, as a buddy of mine drove to work via the Williamsburg Bridge, he noticed something: a small gray dog chained to the pedestrian walkway, shivering, completely drenched and half-frozen. As you probably heard, New York had a very big snow storm last night; we’re almost certain her owners left her out in it overnight to die.




That same dog is now sleeping comfortably at my feet, well-fed, fully-bathed, and having been given a clean bill of health by the local vet.




My friend brought the dog to his office and spent the entire day making calls, not realizing how hard it is to find a home for a pit bull. Something like 1 in 800 rescued pit bulls find homes, and as far as I can tell, no “no-kill” shelter will accept them. I offered to take the dog for the night, since I live closer to my buddy’s office than he does.

Since she showed up to my apartment, she’s been a doll. Hasn’t barked once – in fact, I think the only sound I’ve heard was when she began whimpering when I left the room.

She’s young – the vet estimated her to be 1-2 years old. She knows how to sit, seems to understand stay, and is one of those great dogs that stays very close to your side, leash or no leash. Also, she has a gorgeous gray coat, and as you can see, neither her ears nor tail are clipped. Finally, she’s been exceptionally friendly and playful, both with my roommates and all 30+ co-workers at my friend’s office...."

I would love to take her myself, but I'm in California. Please boost the signal if you can. The original post with more photos and info is here:  http://www.scoutingny.com/?p=3358

I saw this earlier. What a sweet pup. Comments seem to indicate this dog's going to find a home one way or the other, thank goodness.

That is a beautiful, achingly sweet dog.
May the former owners be discovered, hung, drawn, and quartered.
