DIESEL – 18659
Safe - 2-3-2018 Manhattan Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Diesel. My animal id is #18659. I am a desexed male brown brindle 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 19-Jan-2018.
Diesel is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Behaviorally, we suggest that Diesel would be best suited to a dog experienced home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Diesel is a handsome and energetic young man always happy to run free in the yard, go for a walk or meet with his peers, boys and girls. He loves to play, too. Rope toys are his favorite. There is a lot to like about him. His beauty, at first, his slender and healthy body wrapped in a gorgeous tiger brindle coat. His spunk. Diesel is up for whatever you have in store for him. He surely would love an active owner, go hiking, running around the reservoir, running after and jumping for frisbees. He pulls quite a bit on the leash, but nothing that a good harness can not handle. Diesel is no stranger to kisses and hugs. After some treats for which he will sit, a stop by my lap is in order. Diesel will make a wonderful, playful and loving companion to the new person who will elect him as “numero uno forever best friend”. Come and meet him soon at the Manhattan Care Center.
