KIRY was an owner surrender to the NYCACC, the NYC municipal shelter which is a kill shelter. The reason they gave him up was apparently a heart murmur. He lived his whole life outside in a dog house with another dog. the fed him one small cup of food a day.

At the shelter he was nervous but maintained a neutral position. He accepted all handling and leaned in for contact.

He was slated for euthanasia but a foster saw him and had to save him. We are so grateful to that foster,

Kiry needs to be the only pet in the home. He is a senior dog who kinda waddles like a duck and needs to not have to tackle stairs to get to his family. He would do best on a single level in a home with an easily accessible yard. Kiry previously lived outside and loves to be outside so a fenced in yard or deck where he can hang out would be great.

Kiry is very sweet, he loves to give kisses and to be pet. He’s still got a lot of love left to give to a new family
