Waka, waka, waka…..I am Fozzie, the Pitie….How about figuring me on “Sesame Street” ? I am handsome, goofy, a socialite and everybody around finds me to be so endearing. I am a bit chunky like a Teddy Bear . There is just more of me to love…I have glittery almond shaped eyes that show how happy i am to be in company. I love to cuddle with my caretakers and be the center of attention. All what i really wish for is to be your ..star…Fozzie is a good looking, sizable and attractive young man. He is quite sociable, friendly and loves to be hugged. He is a good walker, most likely housetrained and polite with other dogs. In playgroups with his peers, big Fozzie like soft play and does not care for rambunctious encounters. He does have an eye for the pigeons without loosing his head over them. He can sit and stay on command and takes treats politely from the hand. In a nutshell, Fozzie is a big boy with the heart of a babe. Come and meet him soon at the Manhattan Care Center. Fozzie dreams to be your forever best friend.
Another volunteer writes: When staff touches her heart and asks, ‘have you met Fozzie yet, you’ll love him’….you have to know that’s my next dog to meet. A big headed, soft hearted dog – the definition of gentle giant, Fozzie has a megawatt smile, sparkling eyes and an ever wagging tail. Probably housetrained, his leash manners are mostly good, he shows off his sit, and brings a toy over to me for a game of tug. He wins, of course!! But his good nature and big heart is ready to let me try again and again as he brings his toy over to me. If a big bruiser of a boy with a tender heart is your idea of happily ever after, than Fozzie invites you to come visit him today.
