Let’s give Blake our help this week.



Blake (ID#85655), a 3-4-year-old male mystery pooch can be a cross between lab and mastiff.

Quite calm and independent, this well-mannered gentleman properly asks for attention so continued positive socialization will be key so he doesn’t lose this unique quality. To help with the bonding process the shelter recommends walks, runs, hand-feeding, training, etc.

An experienced home with older children would be a great match for this handsome fellow. Blake does not show well in his kennel but is a very different boy once he is in one of our outside runs.  He likes to run for a bit but then loves to have some TLC by his handler.

The Bergen County Animal Shelter is open for adoption every day except Monday, from 1 to 5 p.m., including weekends. The shelter is open on Thursdays from 1 to 7:30 p.m.  For more information, call 201-229-4600.

There are also many other adoptable animals that can be seen at the shelter’s website http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/NJ29.html>. Many local towns have a Patch website where the shelter’s animals are featured.

The shelter also has a page on Facebook. Please visit and “like” the Bergen County Animal Shelter.
