Adoption Feature: Robert from Brooklyn

November 18, 2020 2 min read

Meet Robert!  He is an almost 12 year old lab/hound mix who came to Badass Brooklyn Rescue in January of this year. He was found wandering around somebody's backyard in Georgia, having pulled down laundry to make a bed for his tired bones.

When Badass Brooklyn heard about Robert, they traveled to the shelter to meet him.  Initially, he was very shut down, only finding comfort in another very scared dog. But after a lot of time just letting him be around the people at the rescue, he began to open up and trust.  Now, he's as open-hearted and loving as any dog.

Robert's foster says he's the BEST and sweetest dog. His foster loves watching Robert get spurts of energy to play with his toys, but he says he is also always up for some affection and quiet time with his humans.

Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue describes Robert as a very gentle soul.  He has been tested and is friendly with cats, dogs and kids.  So, no matter how large or small your family, Robert can fit right in.

Because of his age, Robert has required some medical care.  He has some heart and lung issues that will unfortunately persist for the rest of his life.  But, they really haven't seemed to slow him down.  He's on regular medication and can play fetch and rip apart toys like a puppy.

Robert would do best in a home without stairs and one that is willing and able to continue with his ongoing medical needs. He will need follow up appointments with the cardiologist and daily medications.

If you have room for Robert in your home, you can adopt this sweet pup from Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue. And, even if you don't have space for another dog right now, you can help Robert by sharing his video.

While Robert looks for his forever home, somebody out there is just waiting for a sweet pup like him.  Let's help them find each other.
