Charley, the dog found on a slab of ice on the Kinnickinnic River last week, won't be adopted on Friday as planned, according to the Elmbrook Humane Society.
"I am sad to say that Charley will not be available for adoption this Friday; he has come down with a cold," Rachel Coolbroth, director of community relations and development said. "He will need to recover from his cold before we can neuter him."
The two-year-old Pug/Shepherd mix arrived at EBHS on March 20 after his original owner surrendered him to the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission.
The dog was rescued by Milwaukee police after the pup was found stranded on ice in Bay View on March 17.
The shelter has received more than 100 calls about the dog, who was supposed to be neutered today for a Friday adoption.
Coolbroth said the shelter will let prospective adopters know when Charley will be up for adoption again.
