Hi, I’m SHOTZY

TERRIER MIX | BROOKLYN, NYC

How did you meet your human?

I met my Humans at a Badass Brooklyn adoption event in Williamsburg. They like to tell the story that they didn’t even come to see ME (so rude)- they came to look at another adorable rescue pup. But I won them over with my cute little smile and funny floppy ear. And all three of us couldn’t be happier!

What is the story behind your name?

I’m named after Laruen Bacall’s character in “How to Marry a Millionaire”. My Daddies were watching it and thought that “Schatze”s ounded more like a dog name then a human name. Luckily they changed the spelling to to “Shotzy” for me.

Which 3 words best describe your personality?

Particular. Ornery. Floppy-eared.

Who is your favourite ‘hooman’?

I can’t pick! Both of my Dads!!!

What is your favourite food?

My boring old dog food pales in comparison to what I can dig out of the recycling bin!! I LOVE lifting that lid and digging around for an old yogurt container to lick all over. And if there is a rotisserie chicken plastic container? Forget about it!!! Im in puppy heaven!!!

What is your super power?

Im so good at burying bones and treats all over the house. Under pillows, between cushions, I’m squirreling them away for the impending Zombie Apocalypse.

What would your human say is you most unappealing / most embarrassing habit?

They call it my “Ugly Face”. I call it my “Excited to Play Face”. You know, that face you make when you snarl all weirdly and kinda grumble excitedly, because you KNOW some tickles are about to land!

Where can we find you hanging out?

All of the parks of the South Bronx, and around Yankee stadium. So much greenery and open space!!

What is your favourite Buddy Belt colour?

Premium black! It goes with everything!
