I met Coleman and his master in front of the care center, right before she relinquished him to us because of significant personal problems.She was so distraught. He was not suspecting anything and sitting calmly by her side, looking at her with intelligent, devoted, trusting and loving pale green eyes. I was walking a very nice male dog. Coleman looked confident although not bold and rather sociable, wagging happily his tail, comfortable with being close to another pooch. It was a beautiful and sunny Sunday afternoon…Coleman comes with excellent words. Friendly and outgoing with strangers, playful with children, frequenting a dog park and left at times in a doggy day care . I left aside… loving, housetrained, free of handling issues, fine when left alone and pretty much trained as a well mannered pet. Here at the care center, Coleman is very much appreciated by volunteers. He is a great walker, very friendly, affectionate, obedient and a pleasure to walk. In playgroups with his peers, Coleman engages in rough and mouthy play suggesting that he can be placed with another social and exuberantly playful dog. I forgot to mention that Coleman lived with a cat and was very tolerant of him. Coleman has been beautifully cared for by his former owner. Aside his great personality, he is healthy, gorgeous, the perfect weight and wonderfully groomed. Come at meet Coleman at the Manhattan Care Center if you want a handsome and great all around family pet. I know his former master would be very blessed to know that he landed in caring and loving hands…
At the ACC, Coleman immediately stared wagging his tail and jumping on the counselor when they met. His owner told him to sit while he was jumping, and he would do so. He had to be told to sit a few times throughout the intake, but listened every time. Another dog was on the other side of the admissions office and Coleman was very excited about going up to the gate between them to try to sniff him while wagging his tail with his tongue hanging out. After his owner left he jumped on the counselor again but sat when the counselor told him to sit. He allowed for collaring and was the easiest dog counselor has ever taken a picture of- he followed counselor to a specific spot, sat when told, and stayed until the counselor told him he could move.
