DINI – 16947
Safe - 1-11-2018 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Dini. My animal id is #16947. I am a male tan dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 2 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 26-Dec-2017.
Dini is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. behaviorally, we suggest Dini would be best in a dog experienced home. in the shelter, Dini has been great with other dogs, but with people he can be fearful and easily intimidated.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Dini is my MUST dog to take out each time I am at the care center. I saw him coming to our facility he was walking low, tail between his legs, and crouched in a corner of his den. Although still wary, Dini has made great progress with the help of staff and volunteers spending time with him. He still is not a fan of the street but ambulates nicely in the hallway and the yard. He comes right away to his door when he sees me and my leash. He always avoided my gaze but now, looks me straight in the eyes which allowed for better (although not outstanding ) pictures of this most gorgeous young man. I am so proud of him….Dini is a very handsome dog who has been beautifully cared for by his former owner who passed away. That is why Dini was in such a shock when he was brought to us. We are hopeful that Dini, in experienced and loving hands, will find again the spark in his life and bounce back into the happy pet he most likely was. Come and meet him soon at the Manhattan Care Center. Shy dogs do come out of their shells when given a chance.
My medical notes are…
