Adoption Spotlight: Guadalupe

Every now and then, we come across a special dog in our Adoption Center who needs a little extra help finding a home. This week, we’re turning our Adoption Spotlight to Guadalupe, a sweet three-year-old pup who is sure to make some lucky adopter very happy!

Guadalupe came to the ASPCA in May after being rescued from an abusive situation. At first, she was very frightened and hesitant to come out of her kennel, but after extensive training—including learning leash manners with the help of a fake dog—she began to come out of her shell. In fact, once she got comfortable, Guadalupe let us all see what a hilarious goofball she really is!

Guadalupe loves to look at herself in the mirror, chew on pig ears, and put her toys in a pile while she plays with them. She is much more comfortable with women than with men, but she has been living with a foster family since September and has grown to love her foster dad. She enjoys trips to the countryside and has been slowly meeting new dogs and people. Because Guadalupe is nervous with all the busyness of city life, she would do best in a home in the suburbs or the country.

Guadalupe is a very special girl who has been through a lot. She would love nothing more than to open her heart to her very own forever family!

If you are interested in adopting Guadalupe, please contact the ASPCA Adoption Center at (212) 876-7700 ext. 4120.
