02/24/2011 WEB MEMO
A Volunteer Writes: Nutmeg is a 2 yo male , a stray at the shelter since 2/20/2011. He appears healthy and weights 49lbs.Nutmeg was found tied up to a gate, discarded like a used lifeless and mindless toy. Nutmeg, although wearing a dirty coat, is strikingly beautiful. His gorgeous aqua marine eyes draw the visitor to pose in front of his cage and take a good look at him.Nutmeg is shy, he seems a little lost, hesitant but as the potential walker opens his den’s door, Nutmeg comes willingly. Nutmeg does not seem very much used to a leash. He walks right and left but improves by the end of the stroll. He seems weary of things around him and even me. He is slow to warm up but then, when it was time to go back to his ward, we sat in a quiet corner of the shelter. Nutmeg came very close to me,rolled partly on his back with his head on my lap, his little tongue, sticking in and out. Nutmeg is insecure because of what ever happened in his prior life and now because of his stay in a crowded and noisy environment that does not lead to unveil an animal’s true temperament. The behavior Nutmeg showed me at the end of our encounter indicates that he is capable of relating positively and in an affectionate way with humans. He did not show any aggression to me or any dogs we met on our way. He is weary. He needs time. Maybe right and patient owner will come along and make his or hers this beautiful dog.

DO NOT call unless you are going to go down there and get the dog. It is a waste of the staff’s time to explain the adoption procedure over the phone, for someone to purposely not show up? They need every free second of their time to process Lost and Found checks and care for the animals. Not to mention people will think the dogs is safe and then they die. STOP IT OR I WILL TAKE DOWN THIS PAGE!!!!
