NYC Animal Shelter Under Fire, as Facebook Page Vows to Save 'Bruised Not Broken' Dogs

The 80-pound, fawn-colored pit bull named Mr. Bush was not adoptable, under the assessment of New York City’s animal shelter system. He was said to have severe guarding issues, so he waited at Animal Care and Control’s facility in Upper Manhattan but was not featured on the website’s “adoptable dog” section.
Volunteers loved the dog, however, and were worried that he was soon going to end up on the facility's daily euthanasia list. But Mr. Bush’s future—unlike many of the unadoptable dogs at the city’s shelter—didn’t end with an untimely death.
