Mikey is all smiles these days and ready to begin interviewing potential families! You may remember that Mikey was not all smiles when he first arrived, but that's all changed. (Read Mikey's complete story here.)
Mikey's owner walked him into a veterinary hospital in New York, then walked out, leaving Mikey behind. Poor Mikey was absolutely devastated and we didn't know how long it would take to mend his broken heart, but we are happy to say that Mikey is strong, resilient, and is loving life these days!
This 5 year old chocolate lab had some skin infections when he arrived but we've been working hard to get them all cleared up and he is on the fast track to recovery. Mikey is an absolute giant mush that just adores everyone he meets. His whole body sways back and forth when it's time for a bath or walk, and he is just thrilled to make new friends that he sees outside.
Mikey is super playful too and once he hears the squeak of a toy, he begins a happy-bounce until you throw it for him. He is very well behaved and sits instantly when asked. Mikey is a strong boy but extremely gentle. He seems to be ok with other mannerly dogs and loves people of all ages. Mikey will need to continue with his baths and medications until his skin is completely cleared, but he is ready now to start his life over with a family that will love him always, and never abandon him again.
