DUKE – 10318
Safe - 10-26-2017 Manhattan Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Duke. My animal id is #10318. I am a male tan dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 8 years old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 20-Oct-2017.
Duke 10318 is at risk for his medical condition, including glaucoma and luxating patellas. Please see the veterinary notes for further details and clarification. Behaviorally, Duke has been timid with his caretakers but tolerant of handling with a slow approach, though when highly stressed he will escalate to a warning (snapping). Due to his fear and timidity we recommend an adult-only home for Duke and adopters who will allow him to warm up to his new home and new family at his own pace.
My medical notes are…
Weight: 9.6 lbs
