Meet Genevieve: Genevieve has been incredibly friendly with staff since arriving in the shelter. Although she only arrived today, she is already a staff favorite! She is blind and the DVM recommends an ocular workup to determine the cause. Please help this cutie patootie today!!
A volunteer writes: What’s not to like about Genevieve ? Even her name is pretty , girly and suits her tiny pocket Pitie size. Genevieve is a very friendly little gal. She wags her tail in her kennel and gets leashed in a matter of seconds.She needs help to step in and out of her den as she is blind. So often, dogs who are blind are wary, even aggressive sometimes as they do not know what or who is coming at them. Genevieve personifies trust…No fear, no upset, she is just going with the flow. What a smart gal ! What a good natured pooch. I am quite amazed and of course, i am not the only one. Genevieve has already a court of admirers and supporters. Genevieve is easy going, walks quite well with guidance. She listens. She can sit on command and absolutely loves caresses and hugs. She is a major kisser, even my glasses have been washed…. Beside her blindness, Genevieve appears quite healthy, is beautifully dressed in a cute mouse suit and has a very good weight. Her finder had only great things to say about her and we could not agree more. Genevieve is at the Manhattan Care Center dreaming to start a new chapter in her life with you. She is of course visually challenged and will need a patient and understanding new owner as well as veterinary care. Genevieve is a true gem and deserves all the efforts one might want to put into her. Come and meet her soon at the Manhattan Care center.
Genevieve A1104158 is a young female blue & white American Staffordshire (a “pocket pittie”) mix that was found in a park a little while ago in the Bronx. The finder isn’t able to keep her and stated Genevieve’s very sweet, loves Purina Alpo T Bonz treats, might be partially blind due to the condition of her eyes, was friendly and allowed them to place a leash on her neck to walk her to our BXAC.
During intake Genevieve had a loose, wiggly body (when close to her, giving her lots of love/attention) and allowed all handling. She allowed to be scanned (-), collared and taken pictures of. Genevieve’s vision doesn’t appear to be at 100% but she follows verbal direction well and does use her nose to guide her. Genevieve was initially hesitant to go into her kennel but once she smelled the canned/dry food mix placed within she hopped in on her own.
Genevieve hasn’t had a behavior evaluation yet but her medical behavior is green (allows all handling)
