Nitro was rescued by a good-hearted individual back in August 2016. He lived the life of a stray dog before Town of Brookhaven Animal Shelter took him in. In an instant, the pup stole the hearts of every worker and volunteer in the shelter. And his new friends believed it won’t be long before he finds his forever family.
Sadly, it’s been more than 3 years, and Nitro still hasn’t found his home. He’s still waiting in the shelter, inside his kennel, wishing someone would finally show up and take him home.
Over the years, five-year-old Nitro has been struggling with shelter life, just like any other animal is expected to be. He seemed confused as to why he is there and brawls once it’s time for him to go back to his kennel. Thankfully, anyone at the shelter showers him with love. Still, it’s different if he has his own family and home.
Despite Nitro’s struggles inside the shelter, he often has this huge smile right on his handsome face. He loves playing out in the yard and is willing and ready to strike a pose whenever a camera is in front of him. Nitro isn’t asking for much. He just wants to be with his favorite individuals playing outside.
Nitro still has a lot of puppy energy and is super active. He loves running outside, playing fetch, and going for walks. An active individual or family who can play with him as much as they could will be the best fit for Nitro. He is on his best behavior in a household with no young children and must be the only pet in the house.
“All Nitro wants is someone to love him and be at home where he belongs,” said Brittany Broderick, a shelter volunteer. “Not a shelter.”
Nitro has a unique smile that brightens anyone’s day. Whoever decides to welcome him in their home will surely have the brightest days of their lives. Hopefully, that someone shows up very, very soon.
