A volunteer writes: One might say: ” A face only a mother can love …” True… but get to know Eesha and you will soon be convinced that she is one of the most lovable pooches on earth…Eesha is the picture of serenity. I could see her as a therapy dog, attuned to her caretaker’s needs, chill (although aware) with noises and sudden moves, wise not to get involved with trouble makers, a gentle walker and a fast learner. I thought at first that Eesha was a little dull, just going with the flow, a wall flower…I was wrong. Entrusted, she came out of her shell, slowly , sat on command, shook my hand and took finally treats from my fingers. She is so proper….On the bench, next to me she hopped, hid her face in my chest and kissed me profusely. Eesha is such a feel good dog…She is with us as her owner has been in and out of the hospital. He or she took good care of her as she looks quite healthy and well nourished. She suffers though from entropion and must have scratched her self quite a bit in the past, leaving deep old scars on the right side of her face and a very damaged eye. I love Eesha warm brandy color reminding me of a dog I loved very much years ago at the care center. This is the color of family dogs as i picture them in my mind…Eesha, a name that means life or gift of G– in Arabic is really a gift to us humans, a treasure of a dog who must be a most loyal companion, a special friend with whom one can share happy moments, painful crisis , secrets and dreams….Eesha is the poster child for the man(woman)’s best friend. Eesha is very much liked here at the care center. We all hope that soon enough, she will leave us for a home sweet home and the love of a master. ETA is at the Manhattan Care Center.
Another volunteer writes: If you don’t fall in love with Eesha when
you meet her …. So quiet in her kennel, so happy to be leashed for a walk she steps out carefully as she only has one good eye. She’s so housetrained, holding it until she’s outside and peeing forever, has great leash manners, is so sweet and calm, she’s an oasis in the midst of a chaotic environment.Eesha is truly a gem who has been loved and cared for until her owner fell ill. She romps in play group, turns to watch a fellow shelter dog pass by when we’re in the park, does a little play bow and tail wag to me as I tether her for pictures, and of course, rocked her behavior assessment indicating she’ll be a great fit in a home with average dog experience. Eesha gives the sweetest little kisses while snuggling gently in. If you’re still reading, and haven’t dropped everything to rush to meet this delicious girl you’re missing an opportunity of a lifetime. Do it now!!
