A volunteer writes: “Do not judge a book by its cover!! Read it !!” This applies to my beautiful friend Angel, a handsome 6 year old family dog who came with Lucy, his sibling, as their owners did not have time for their pets anymore. Angel does not like his kennel. At home, he was not fond of his crate either. He is used to a big place called home. So he barks and sometimes grumbles in his den. Take him out and you will see what I see, a gem of a dog, well mannered, gentle, very loving, a great bench buddy, friendly to all and pleasant to his peers, big or small, in the street. Angel wears well his name. He is really good looking and has been like Lucy, outstandingly cared for. He comes with excellent comments. Good with strangers, children, other dogs (and in particular Lucy), fine with snakes and lizards but not with cats. He would prefer toys to balls and is known to be a cuddle bug. Angel walks calmly on the leash, does his business on the leash and frequently checks with me if he is doing ok. I really love him. He is a little plump, has the greatest smile, makes a smart use of his ears (for the camera) and is so sweet. Well, Angel is dreaming, like sister Lucy, of a new home to call his own and a person to love. Come and meet him soon at the Manhattan Care Center. Addendum: Yesterday, I had the scare of my life. As I was walking my beautiful Angel, a dog, a large male, leash-less, suddenly appeared by our side. I froze…but not Angel. He was all relaxed, tail wagging and a smile on his face. The other dog seemed nice enough but did not want to go away and despite my fear, I decided to follow in Angel’s smart footsteps. After all, who knows better dogs than another dog. The cool dude mode worked. The other dog was soon leashed by his human and we all parted peacefully. Angel is good with other dogs, we knew that. But still, we were dealing with a total and a bit pushy stranger. My hat’s off to you, Angel!!! You are a star.
