CEDAR – 19629
Gone - 2-10-2018 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Cedar. My animal id is #19629. I am a male gray dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 31-Jan-2018.
Cedar is being placed at risk due to being diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Cedar will likely require in home care with a course of antibiotics. We recommend Cedar go to an experienced dog home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Cedar is such a big mush! He’s as charming as he is handsome, chock full of fun-loving character, very easy on the eye and an absolute delight to spend time with, an all-round sweetheart! He had a real blast on our first date, playing with his toys, jumping up for hugs and even sitting on command to gently snarfle a treat from my hand. While he can get a bit impatient when he wants something, Cedar’s always keen to get out and about with friends and even when putting up with multiple attempts at snuggle selfies during our photo shoot he remained soft and wiggly in my arms. Strong but responsive on leash and a generous fetch partner in the yard, he meets other dogs with polite friendship and snuffle-sniffs his way through the world with a happy tail and a spring in his step. This gorgeous guy has a cuddly side too and he adores butt rubs and will nuzzle his mushy face into your lap if you let him. Cedar may have been abandoned in the cold with a frozen pan of water by his side but his big heart couldn’t be any warmer and he’s ready and waiting to light up a loving foster or forever home with his sunny smile. Let’s not make him wait too long…
