Local Sunnyside 'Good' News:

From Sunnyside Post:

The Dog Guru held a fundraising event on Sunday to raise money for its dog rescue operations.
Raja Shah, the owner and operator of the Dog Guru (located at 47-12 43rd Street), had more than 40 dogs- from pit bulls to Boxers — he was rehabilitating with the goal of adopting them out.    
The casual event, which included a bake sale, was an opportunity for many residents to see some of the dogs Shah and his 11-part-time workers had rescued. At least three dogs that afternoon looked as though they had found homes.
Shah lacked the time he needed to mingle and raise cash. His attention instead turned to his dogs – since several people showed interest in adopting his dogs all at once.
A couple from Manhattan displayed interest in Shah’s pit-bull Johnny Boy. Shah pulled Johnny Boy out of a bankrupt dog boarding operation where many of the dogs were abandoned and found emaciated and distressed.
He trained the dog for six weeks and that afternoon the Manhattanites took Johnny Boy home.
Meanwhile, Isis – a Rottweiler — also found new owners.
