Adoptable Brooklyn Cutie of the Week: Aponte

Here's this week's adoptable pet of the week from the Brooklyn Animal Rescource Coalition (BARC) shelter in Williamsburg.

Here is Aponte and some information about him:
This is Aponte. He was liberated from Animal Care and Control and is one happy, friendly dog! He was skinny, and his handsome brindle coat a bit dull when he arrived at BARC, but he's well on his way to becoming a former shelter dog success story. Aponte is about 50 pounds of pitbull mix, and approximately 3 years old. To meet him in person contact BARC. If you're not ready for a serious commitment, BARC's volunteer dogwalking program is a great way to get a canine "fix" and maybe meet your next best friend.
Clearly, any potential adopter has to decide if a particular creature in need of a home is right for their living situation, needs and their ability to provide the proper level of care and attention. The BARC Shelter is located at N. 1 and Wythe in Williamsburg. More info about them here.

I walked Aponte this weekend at BARC and can say that he is a very cute and sweet dog. In my opinion he looks like he has some Akita in him too. He really enjoyed being with his pal Jumbo who was super sweet too! Both very smart!
