BOBBI SUE – 14919
Safe - 12-15-2017 Manhattan Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Bobbi Sue. My animal id is #14919. I am a female brown dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years 2 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 29-Nov-2017.
Bobbi Sue is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Behaviorally, we suggest that Bobbi Sue would be best suited to an adult only home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: A tiny cocoa bean, Bobbi Sue is shy and uncertain in her kennel. Needing a slow approach to gain her trust on her timetable, Bobbi Sue and I walked to the park, chatting about the economy, her favorite dog treats, whether Animal Planet is a good show, and what her favorite things to do are (eat treats is definitely one of them!). Bobbi waited all the way until we got to the park to go potty on the grass, and as her kennel is always clean, she’s likely housetrained. I’ve seen Bobbi Sue with staff she knows, and she’s tail waggy, and kissy, and allows all handling, happy to jump in a lap for closeness. We made some baby steps, Bobbi Sue and I. As I gave her treats, she eventually came forward to be petted, putting her paws in my lap. A slow approach, and a patient adult-only home will give Bobbi Sue the confidence she needs to be a wonderful best friend. She’s hoping to meet that special person today. A volunteer updates: It’s amazing the difference a couple of days can make, with regular visits from staff and volunteers Bobbi Sue is a new woman! Up front in her kennel, a woof that she’d like to be next for a walk please, easily leashed and out we go. A coat against the cold, yes please! She again waited until we got to the park to go potty and after ‘going’ looks up at me waiting for her ‘good girl’. Showing off her sit, she takes treats so sweetly, but when a squirrel crossed our path, watch out. Miss Bobbi Sue thinks squirrels are fun and I have no doubt would love to try to outrun one! We enjoyed some petting and some quiet time, and when it was time to go back into her kennel she hopped in without issue. Slow and easy wins the race as the saying goes, and it’s so true with our Bobbi Sue. Give her a chance to feel safe and comfortable, and learn the routine and she’s a gem. Our little Cocoa Bean is ready to go home!
