Introducing Esmeralda Avocet, another #Peculiar pup from our #FallinLoveRescue trip! When we first met Esmeralda she was terrified, pregnant, and completely shut down, laying frozen on the floor of her kennel. Fearful dogs like this are often overlooked at the shelter, and we knew if we gave her a little space and time, we could get her to open up. On our last day of the rescue trip, we finally took her out of her cage. She was scared at first, but finally warmed up and became very affectionate, she was so happy to be petted and receive our love. She was great with other dogs too, and we knew without a doubt, this girl was coming back to Brooklyn with us. To foster or adopt Esmeralda, visit badassbk.com.
