10/29/2015 WEB MEMO
A Staff Member Writes: “Jimmy K is two! Staff favorite and longest canine resident at the Brooklyn ACC, Jimmy K turned 2 years old this month. Though he loved the bully stick he got, what Jimmy wants most for his birthday is a family and home of his very own. Jimmy is a friendly, low-energy Pittie mix who is a big fan of sunbathing, belly rubs, and Kongs. He needs an owner who is experienced with large dogs and understands that he may not get along well with other male dogs, but he played well with most of the female dogs he has met in the care center and is friendly with people. Due to his mellow nature, Jimmy could easily be a family pet or go home with a person who has a busy schedule. If you have lots of love, a few minutes for a walk or romp each day, and a warm spot on the couch, Jimmy is your guy! Jimmy is available at the BACC on 2336 Linden Blvd for a same day adoption. Please come and meet him today!”
