Long-Stay Shelter Dog Learns Impressive Tricks To Attract Adopters

An intelligent and pretty pup named Sol has been patiently waiting at Animal Care Centers of NYC in Staten Island since January for a family to adopt her.

She watches with her piercing blue eyes as people walk by and she doesn't understand why no one stops to meet her.

Sol is an energetic gal who needs an active partner who will show her the world. She is a fast learner and excels at mental challenges.

The shelter staff worked with sweet Sol to show off her talents by teaching her tricks. She can do all the basics as well as weave through poles, get in a kiddie pool and wait for cue to exit, and jump through a hula hoop.

Sol recently performed ten impressive tricks and earned a certificate naming her a "Novice Trick Dog". The shelter rewarded her hard work with a "pawty" and shared a video of the celebration on TikTok in hopes of catching the eye of an adopter.

@nycacc We are so proud to announce that Sol recently earned a Novice Trick Dog certification by performing 10 tricks! 1 year old Sol is a longstay that has been at Staten Island ACC since January and she is the definition of Beauty and Brains.

She was spoiled with lots of attention, a new toy, and her very own dog-friendly cake. The shelter team is so proud of her and know that her special someone is out there.

Sol is not only smart, but she is absolutely adorable. Her caretakers state that, "She is the definition of Beauty and Brains."

The young dog is still learning to share her belongings and attention and would love to be an only pet. Learn how you can adopt Sol here. She is sure to brighten up anyone's day.
