SIR SEAN CONNERY IS ADOPTED!!
For those just joining us, Sean's story is more like a rags to riches fairy tale than something out of a spy movie. Someone seems to have loved him down South, having paid for surgery when he broke his leg years ago and caring for him since. Then, for whatever reason, he got surrendered with some other dogs to an Alabama kill shelter, with nothing from his former life besides some handwritten notes scrawled on the back of a photo. That was nearly one year ago.
As a senior, heartworm positive dog in an overcrowded shelter, Sean was lucky to escape the needle thanks to our friends down South who recognized his Badassery. One took him home to foster, and they contacted us. His kind, gentle face beckoned, and we made plans for him to come to Brooklyn.
Sean stayed behind for heartworm treatment as his Badass Buds moved on and got adopted. And when he came North, we unfortunately learned that his bad leg needed more surgery. He didn't bounce back as quickly as some of our younger pups and then also suffered a setback necessitating yet another surgery, which thwarted a planned adoption. But Sean's a trooper of the most Badass sorts and soldiered on with his signature grin and some loving for everybody. He caught the eye of Susie's Senior Dogs and captured a ton of hearts while working through rehab at foster home and Water4Dogs. It's been a joy to have him, and he could stay forever as far as we're concerned. But no dog more deserves a forever family to call his own.
He's got a couple of months of rehab to go and is also trying to clear ehrlichia, but when your ship comes in, it's all aboard! Sean first met his wonderful family at Canine Carnival in Syracuse a few weeks back; they came to pick him up at Eva's Play Pups countryside dog camp; and today it's official! There's no question that it's true love for everybody! He's got human, canine, and feline siblings to go with his wonderful parents and an acre of land to enjoy upstate. His brother's going to be his rehab captain, and they've renamed him "Saint." How perfect!
