Goodbye to an NYCSR Alum

We rescued 10-year-old Jack from the Bucks County SPCA in Pennsylvania in the Autumn of 2008. We learned from Walter yesterday that Jack has passed away.

Alumni Shiba: Nikko

Shanna, Nikko’s forever home mom, emailed us to let us know that Nikko is the most fantastic dog ever. She said he is super intelligent and learns commands quickly (with treats of course!). They live in Williamsburg and he has a back yard that he just loves to hang out in. He is a bit […]

Nicco's new home

Nicco was adopted back in June and has been having a great time with his forever family. We received this photograph of Nicco playing in the snow that fell last week in NJ. He looks happy and healthy!

Nikko's update

Nikko has been coming out of shell and can be a super sweet and loving dog. He’s warmed up and relaxed in his foster home. His foster mom has nothing but great things to say about him and loves that he will walk over with a toy in his mouth to her asking to play […]

Kit's update for November

Kit aka Clay is having fun with his foster dad, Rain. Kit and Zucca are now being fostered together and it’s helped Kit learn some good behaviors like going into his crate without a fuss. He also has a friend to play with and seems very happy. Kit’s gained some weight and his fur is […]

Update for Ashitaka

Ashitaka is doing very well with foster mom, Molly. He’s still aloof, cautious, and gentle but as the days progress he’s trusting her more and more. Sometimes he still gets very nervous but he’s learning to trust a little more each day. She’s still working and reinforcing basic obedience. From what we have been told […]

Nikko's Update 10/11

Nikko has been doing well at his foster home. He still does not get along with dogs but is fine with cats. He likes kids and adults and doesn’t show any aggression to anyone. he loves to be petted and rubbed. Everytime his foster mom walks in the house he has a huge smile. Nikko […]

Ashitaka Update 10/7

Ashitaka has been slowly progressing. He’s still cautious around new people and situations and can still be growly and possessive with toys around other dogs. He’s friendly to other dogs when there’s not an item that’s worth anything around. When Ashitaka finds his forever home, we hope they keep working with him to improve his […]

Introducing Nikko

Nikko is almost a year old, neutered male, and has tri-color markings. He’s still a puppy in spirit and because of that exhibits a lot of silly puppy behaviors and needs to learn manners. He pulls on a leash and is easily distracted by squirrels, movement of any kind, and only seems to pay great […]

Jack Update 10/2

Jack has lost a few pounds since his last update and his foster dad, Walter, has been working with him on his leash training. We did find out that Jack has a bit of arthritis in his left hind leg which could contribute to the fact that Jack isn’t always game for a long walk. […]

Clay Update

This past weekend in NYC, it rained a lot! The hurricane’s leftover oomph came this way and gave us a lot of wind, soupy thick humid weather on Friday, and then Sat rain… lots of rain. We didn’t experience too much damage from fallen trees or garbage cans rolling away, and it seems Clay had […]

Bailey update!!

Bailey’s having fun in his new home and has a very furry friend to hang out with. His new owners sent us this update: Bailey seemed to be a little frustrated with all of the rules we gave him, but all in all he did really well his first night. I was a little concerned […]

Jack's update 9/8/07

Jack’s foster dad let us know how the first weekend was with Jack in his home. Here’s what Walter had to say, So far Jack is doing great and has made a lot of progress. At first he was rather aloof and when I took him out for the first time he tended to weave […]

Ashitaka Update

Ashitaka is still learning basic commands and how to walk on a leash. He’s very good with other dogs and likes stuffed animal toys. He does have a tendency to take all the stuffing out of them. Ashitaka doesn’t seem to have aggressive tendencies, he sometimes will get a little possessive about a toy around […]

Prince Update

Prince is doing very well, and his foster parent described him as wonderful. He is a sweet dog and warms up quickly to people. He does get nervous if someone approaches him too fast and is too forceful when he first meets them. He also can be a bit nippy but it seems to be […]

At first glance, Ashitaka can give you the sense of an old soul. His gaze is deep and emotional. When he grins and wags his tail, it instantly puts a smile on your face. He loves to come over and lick your hands. He is happy to spend hours at your feet curled up or […]
