Mikey’s previous owners left him on the streets of Brooklyn to fend for himself—he weighed a mere four pounds, his hair was matted, and his nails were completely overgrown. When I met him for the first time, Mikey stared at me with his beautiful brown eyes, lowered his antenna ears and rolled on his back. My heart gushed—I completely fell in love.
Although Mikey seemed like a calm, submissive dog when I first met him, he turned out to be quite an active fellow with a passion for the face-paced city life. He loves to chew on his sister Olive’s ears, compete in five-mile races, and stay up all night fetching ball. Someone once said you don’t get the dog you want, you get the dog you need. Mikey came into my life to teach me patience, trust, and remind me why I love my job—helping to further the ASPCA’s mission and save countless homeless animals like Mikey.
