BAMBI – 20970
Gone - 2-20-2018 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Bambi. My animal id is #20970. I am a female tan dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 11 years old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 17-Feb-2018, with the surrender reason stated as animal behaviour – destructive tendencies.
Bambi is at risk for behavior reasons. Bambi is a fearful and anxious dog, and her fear manifests into defensive aggressive behaviors with people. Bambi appears to seek to avoid interaction with other dogs. We are seeking placement fro Bambi only with a New Hope partner who can more fully assess her behavior and requirements. Medically, Bambi is a geriatric lady with associated muscle wastage and a small mammary tumor which should be further investigated.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Bambi is a statuesque dog, a bit thin, maybe, but so beautiful and majestic. She is perched on high legs, looks stern and seems lost in thoughts. She was a beloved family dog relinquished to us as her owner’s health did not allow her to care for a pet anymore. Bambi was happy and played with her human children as well as the adults in the house. She is described as friendly, sociable, affectionate, good with strangers as well as other pooches, and house trained. It is so understandable that she is “sad” about this untoward turn of event. Still, she is one sweet and gentle gal who, after initial shyness, will come for hugs and kisses or sit on a bench in the park, her body huddled against mine. She sits on command and takes–so gently–treats from my hand. She slightly pulls on the leash and does her business on the way. We were told that Bambi knows many commands, among them: back up; crawl; high five; and play dead. She needs a family, an owner to show again all the tricks she has up her sleeve. I love Bambi, a middle aged gal, noble looking, and suggesting to me that she is the loyal and loving dog, the friend I would love to have by my side. Come and meet Bambi at the Manhattan Care Center, she would love to come home with you.
