CHUNKY – 11857
Urgent - Manhattan
**ADOPTED 11/12/17 – RETURNED 11/13/17**DOH HOLD – B**
Hello, my name is Chunky. My animal id is #11857. I am a male gray dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 1 years old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 06-Nov-2017.
Chunky is being place at risk due to bing diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex which is contagious to other dogs. He will likely require in home care with a course of antibiotics. He should go to an experienced dog owner who is prepared to manage a large breed, high energy dog who many need some basic behavior management.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Chunky (who is not chunky) was found by a police officer who brought him to the Manhattan Care Center with a load of praises. Chunky is, without a doubt, a real Titan, a tall and muscular dog, lean, handsomely dressed, and with the strength of a colossus. A kennel is definitely not for him. He needs space. Once leashed, Chunky pulls in directions even unknown to him, making a walk in the street quite an experience. The yard is our the best option to get to know each other. Taking pictures of him is not an easy task. Chunky is in constant movement, sniffing and leaving his scents. He is may be anxious at this point, but he is happy to see staff he recognizes most, goes to them, and wags his tail, standing on his tall hinds to see them better. He briefly rushes after a ball or a toy. Treats are not his focus, and that tells me that he is not himself yet, and needs more time to acclimate to our premises. Still, he comes when called and settles within my arms, even sticking his little tongue out for a kiss. He got me now…he is my boy…and I hope he could be yours, too–happy, relaxed, playful in his new home and with a person to love and look up to. Chunky is at the Manhattan Care Center, and waiting for you.
