A volunteer writes:
Bravo is a very pleasant and likable elderly gentleman who is with us for no fault of his own. He has been well cared for , well brought up and properly socialized by his former master and it shows. Bravo is poised in his kennel but up and about outside. A great walker he is, likely house trained and nears other dogs properly. Crowds and noise do not bother him and he is not a pigeon chaser. Bravo really comes to life in the yard. Although he likes to jump for what he wants, he is a perfect ‘sitter” and samples treats very politely from my hand. He does not mind a scarf placed around his neck and clearly enjoys petting. Bravo is smart and knows where is friends are. He is a great ball player .. You should see this 10 year old gent leaping into the air like a rocket ! I could not do this ! I guess, good genes, proper care and nutrition have generated a healthy dog. Bravo is quite a catch in his well groomed tricolor coat. His eyes are barely cloudy and his teeth , mother of pearl. I have heard only good things about Bravo from staff and other volunteers. Come and see him for yourself. A well mannered, lively, social and friendly chap he is , so ready to be once again, a beloved pet. Bravo is at the Manhattan Care Center.
