Blackie the dog is in need of a home. Abandoned last August when his family moved, he was left behind in his Brooklyn backyard. Now a former neighbor is hoping to find someone to adopt him.
Cathy Pantaleno, 70, lived across the street from Blackie’s family until she moved to Jamaica three years ago. She kept in contact with the dog, frequently going back to her old neighborhood to play with Blackie and bring him food and water. Pantaleno came to care for the dog as if he were her own, but was unable to adopt him herself because she lives in a small apartment and has cats.
