01/26/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Dial is a real fun and pleasant gal to be around. She is so lively, sociable, friendly and very affectionate, welcoming anybody who comes to say hello. She is beautiful too, stocky and yet so feminine. Her facial features are so girly and attractive. Look at her naughty eyes, her cute ears and her adorable pout. Dial has been outstandingly cared for. She is healthy, the perfect weight and impeccably dressed. Besides the fact that she craves for food and did search my goodies bag, she has lovely and sweet manners that make her a delicious pet. She is adorable to watch, diving into the snow. Maybe the first time in her life. We were told that she is “docile, quiet, affectionate and playful”, loves kids, played with her cats and is friendly to other dogs. So why is pretty Dial with us? Dial housesoils and her master was never able to train her out of the habit. How much effort did she put into it? We will never know. What I know, what is a given… is that Dial is a fantastic girl to live for and worth the effort needed to house train her. If you feel up to the challenge, come to the Manhattan Care Center, meet the young damsel, fall in love and take her home as your new forever best friend.
