Long Island Pup Needs a Long-Term Home

Trigger is currently at a shelter on Long Island, but his adoption and travel fees are covered for anyone who adopts him—anywhere in the country.

Trigger has been at the Brookhaven Animal Shelter on Long Island, New York for three years. He is a 4-year-old pitbull mix that shelter volunteers say has been looked over time and time again.

There are more than 200 dogs at the shelter, and Sept. 11 marked Trigger's three-year anniversary there. According to employees at the shelter, he is a gentle dog who wants nothing more than a home of his own.

Trigger knows commands and is very responsive to training. Those at the shelter says he is gentle with taking treats, loves to play ball, and also loves attention that people give him.

Trigger needs to be the only pet and should not be in a home with other animals. He has been at the shelter so long that he no longer interacts well with other animals.

Trigger is sponsored locally, and his adoption and transportation fees are covered for anyone who adopts him—anywhere in the country. If interested, please contact Ashley at pitlover1218@gmail.com
