ASPCA Staff Pick Dog: Baby

Every now and then, we come across a special dog in our New York City Adoption Center who just can’t seem to find a home. One such dog is Baby, a total sweetheart who has been in our care for more than a year and a half. During that time, our Adoptions team has formed a special bond with Baby, frequently describing her as a “cuddle bug with a heart of gold.” Baby has captured the hearts of many staff members here at the ASPCA, and while we love spending time with her, we can’t wait for her to join a loving family. 

This oversized lap dog already knows Sit, and would love to have you teach her other tricks. She is super sweet, and while she likes to say “hello” to other dogs, she isn’t a huge fan of playing with them. Baby takes her job as a companion very seriously, and doesn’t like to be left alone for long periods of time. If you work from home or spend time in a dog-friendly location during the day, Baby would love to be by your side as your partner in crime. She’d get along fine with kids 10-and-up, preferably in a home without other pets—Baby loves to be the center of attention! 

If you’re interested adopting Baby, the cuddliest pup in town, please call our Adoptions department in New York City at (212) 876-7700 ext. 4120. To learn more about Baby, please visit her page.

Not able to adopt Baby, but know someone who can? Spread the word by posting the flyer below on your social media profiles! With your help, we’ll find Baby a home at last.

OMG you are beautiful.. I will pray for you to get a permanent home soon.
I would of taken you under my wing but I just rescued to abondened dogs from my jobs parking lot. GOD BLESS YOU BABY <3


I can't believe she's been there for a year and a year and a half. Just goes to show how difficult it is to find homes. Everything is so backwards when it comes to the all of the poor dogs and cats in shelters today. There is such an overpopulation with countless being euthanized in some places and yet people just keep breeding and keep selling. Why can't cities just pass legislation permitting the sale only by licensed and regulated breeders, otherwise you have to adopt. This nasty business of selling dogs in stores and online has to end.


Baby you are very cute and you rock in your pretty new sweater will say prayers :-)

Baby is adorable. If only I had the room outside to take her for walks and runs. Unfortunately, the area I live in has made war with breed discrimination. I hate it for all that are here in my area. There should be laws against breed discrimination. Everyone is trying to fight it, but so far it seems to be a loosing battle. Hang in there Baby, the right Humans will come for you.


Its so sad w so many people on this earth that have houses and cannot take baby in:( I would but I live in a 2 bedroom apartment w 2 dogs 2 bunnys and guinie pigs......awwwhhh hope you find a home soon


Awww... she looks so sweet! If I didn't already have a doggie I would just fall over for her.


I would be happy to pay for some of Baby's food. Drop me a line in my inbox.

We have a dog just like her in our rescue. She is the sweetest girl, and has been with us for over five years, waiting for her forever home. We have tried everything we can think of, but no luck. I would have adopted her myself, but already have five dogs.
