RUKUS DIES WEDNESDAY!!!
Unless Fostered...CONTACT egiurco@optonline.net
He lived in a home with 6 young children, who he has always showered with love and kisses. He has been great with everyone who he has ever met but for some reason never liked the mailman(like many other dogs). Due to a gate being left open, Ruckus got out and nipped the mailman. No stitches requires and Ruckus walked away with his head hung low and tail tucked between his legs, knowing he had done something wrong. Due to the fact that the mailman has used this as an opportunity to try to make money, he is suing the family and even stopped delivering their mail. Because of the pending law suit, their insurance company won't cover them past the end of this month and they can't afford to find another carrier. The family is giving us until Wednesday(written in stone) to find him a new home or he is being dropped off at the ACC. He will never stand a chance there and most likely be murdered.
URGENT UPDATE!! I just received a call from the Town of Hempstead Shelter.. Ruckus's owner was there to surrender him after giving us until Wednesday to place him. The shelters policy is now that if they have a bite, no matter how minor, they are euthanized. The owner was leaving him there to be killed! Fortunately, the shelter contacted me and while on the phone convinced him to take Ruckus home until Wed. He didn't; believe that we would find him a home and didn't want to wait. My contact at the shelter said that ruckus was in the back seat with a 5 year old girl and extremely sweet when she took him out of the car. His intention is to bring him back to be put down on Wednesday if we can't find someone to step up for him!!!
Please don't stop sharing until we get him home!!!
Ruckus was bought off of Craig's list as a baby and now 5 years later is headed to the Shelter!!!

He has had minimal socialization with other dogs but he did well during both off leash interactions with 1 small and 1 large dog. Amazing with kids of all age. Neutered and UTD on vaccines.
Located- Elmont, NY
Due to no fault of his own, Ruckus is not only in jeopardy of losing the only family he has ever known but his life as well.
RUKUS will die the day before Thanksgiving if a Home or Foster is not found! A Loving dog...a devoted dog...who lived with children since he was a puppy!!! It's the old Mail Man story! DOGS know...and this particular MM is suing the family now...the dog nipped him! Not even a bite! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Please don't let him become another statistic. Contact egiurco@optonline.net
