LONG ISLAND CITY — Kramer the pit bull terrier is as loveable as his Seinfeld namesake, his rescuers say.
This 2-year-old pup was taken in last year by LIC Feral and Friends, an animal welfare group in Long Island City, after rescuer Gina Lori found him running the streets in an industrial section of Maspeth.
Kramer lived at a neighborhood auto body shop whose owners no longer wanted him, she said.
"He was kept behind a really small gate. He didn’t have very much interaction with anybody," she said. "When he got his chance for freedom, he took it."
After his rescue, Kramer was adopted for a time by someone in Virginia, but he ended up back with LIC Feral and Friends after his new owner moved.
"He really is looking for somebody that will be patient with him because hes been bounced around," Lori said.
The 65-pound blue pit bull terrier sports an adorable under bite and is fully house-trained, according to Lori, who describes him as "active, highly intelligent, sensitive and very sweet."
"He's super smart," she said. "He's just curious about other people and animals."
Kramer loves other dogs, but does best with those who are similar in size to him. He doesn't get along well with cats.
