BANJO – 8568
Safe - 11-3-2017 Manhattan Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Banjo. My animal id is #8568. I am a desexed male gray dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years 6 months 2 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 01-Oct-2017.
Banjo is at risk due to CIRDC.
Banjo is at risk due to being diagnosed with Canine Upper Respiratory Disease Complex which is contagious to other dogs. He will likely require in home care with a course of antibiotics. We recommend Banjo go to a an experienced dog owner with no young children, due to jumping and leash biting seen in care center.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Handsome and serious looking in his kennel, patiently sitting to be leashed. His round face and underbite give away his ancestry. His attractive copper eyes contrasting with his silver coat are so gentle when he is on my lap, and so intense when he plays ball or with a toy. Well built, healthy, energetic and bouncy but capable of resting peacefully on a bench next to me. I am talking about the one and only…Banjo. Banjo is a powerful and tall dog who needs an experienced person who can give him the mental and physical stimulation he needs, and also the guidance his strong personality requires. He loves to play, he loves treats which will make training easier. Banjo knows the basics: come, sit and stay; and appreciates very much the company of people. Because of a small muzzle bite he acquired at the care center (of note–Banjo did not retaliate), Banjo was not really put in playgroups with his peers. But other than seeming interested in them while on the leash, Banjo has been cool looking at them. Banjo and I have had many “evenings’ together when I got to appreciate him very much. I hope that his chance will come for you to see how great he is and what wonderful companion he will make. Come and meet Banjo at the Manhattan Care Center and make him yours. A volunteer writes as dictated by Banjo: Hi, I’m Banjo and yes, you’ve probably heard only good things about me. Besides being very handsome, I love to play, and my favorite game is tug. If you let go of your side, I’m just going to bring our toy back to you to invite you to tug again. It’s really my favorite game! I do like to pull apart plushie toys, so good sturdy toys are the best for me. I love people, and talk about being in the right place at the right time, I’m a Cosmopolitan Magazine star. Well, OK, maybe not the star, but the magazine folks sure loved me and took a lot of pictures and videos of me while we played. They loved me! (Of course they did). We all laughed, and played, and I let them pet me and we had a ball. (Well we did until I chewed it up, LOL!) The bottom line is I’m pretty special and waiting in adoptions for you to find me. I’m the good looking one, you can’t miss me!
My medical notes are…
