CANNOLI – 20737
Safe - 2-21-2018 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Cannoli. My animal id is #20737. I am a male white dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 14-Feb-2018.
Cannoli is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Behaviorally, we have no concerns for Cannoli, whom we believe would be suitable for most homes.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Wearing the most perfect ginger-brindle eye patch, a spotless white coat and a winning smile, Cannoli looks like a playful pirate out to steal your heart…and he is! I fell for his gorgeous face from the get-go, but he’s sweet on the inside too, eager to socialize and easy to handle, friendly toward fellow dogs and very smart and responsive when he wants to be. Squeaky toys and sniffing stuff are Cannoli’s two favorite hobbies, and he devotes himself to them with a passion, exploring the neighborhood with his nose to the ground or focusing like a laser on the sound of his toy. He sits politely for treats, too, though mine are apparently not to his taste! A good leash walker who doesn’t pull, he makes plenty of pit stops for sniffing and potty time along the way, and off leash he’s soft, smooshable and always ready to play. Cannoli is just as delicious as his namesake, and with his excellent behavior evaluation he’d fit into any active home with ease. Ask to meet this handsome hunk at our Manhattan Care Center and get ready to fall in love!
