Shay was abandoned by owner's who moved away, left him with a neighbor & never came back for him. The neighbor surrendered him to the NYC shelter after about a month. Shay is 6 years old & 90lbs. With his previous owners, he was taken out very little, left alone for long periods, & did not have much human connection.

Out of boredom, anxiety or both, he chewed on the walls & has a lot of wear on his teeth as a result. When he arrived at the NYC shelter he was terrified. He trembled, growled, & didn't want anyone to approach him. He was labeled rescue only, & put on the kill list.

When we rescued him, he was neutered & brought to his foster a few days later. He has been with his foster for several months & has met children, adults, other dogs & cats & he has loved those encounters. He really loves to be with other dogs.

Shay requires slow introductions. One minute of a slow intro & he's all over you with kisses. He does not bark a lot. Grooming Shay is not difficult such as to bathe him & trim his nails without difficulty. Shay is very loving & has a gentle spirit. To adopt Shay apply at rescuedogsrocknyc.org
