Walter arrived at Adopt-A-Dog after we received a call from The New York Animal Care Center in Manhattan regarding a sweet, overweight dog (weighing in at 93 pounds) who had been turned in by his family who would no longer care for him. He was obese and immobile, but the Adopt-A-Dog team kicked into action and provided him a specialty diet and physical therapy. He is now at his goal weight after losing 40 pounds and is ready for a home of his own. Walter is almost too much personality in one dog's body and would make an excellent addition to a home with another dog or kids to help him enjoy all the little things life has to offer. We cannot stop talking about how fantastic Walter is, so please help us continue by contacting our Adoptions team today!

If you are interested in adopting Walter, please complete an application. Be sure to indicate the dog(s) you are interested in meeting in your application.
