FERDINAND – 18480
Safe - 1-27-2018 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Ferdinand. My animal id is #18480. I am a male brown brindle dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 10 months 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 16-Jan-2018.
Ferdinand is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Behaviorally, we recommend that Ferdinand would be best suited to a dog experienced home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Puppy playful and affectionate, brindlicious Ferdinand is ready to go go go. He’s sleek and gorgeous in his gleaming coat, tail wagging in friendship to all, and wanting to meet everyone we pass on our walk. He seems to be housetrained, is puppy zig zaggy on leash, and sometimes startles at loud noises on the street as trucks go by on busy First Avenue. It’s off leash in the yard where both his super playful and very affectionate personality comes out as he zooms around the yard happily playing with toys, giving stand up hugs and kisses, and hopping up on the bench to explore my lap! Perhaps named after the movie about a bull with a big heart, it actually does capture our 10 mos. old Ferdi (we’re on a nickname basis now), as Ferdi is puppy-oblivious to his size as he romps in play, and totally, completely, 100% affectionate. He’s smart, loves treats, and with positive reinforcement training (aka lots of good treats), he’ll learn appropriate manners befitting a rock star grown-up dog. If you’re ready to enjoy life with a playful, fun, and affectionate young boy, ask to meet Ferdi when you visit, and do it today.
