A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: I almost passed over Gambit, big and black, not seeing how beautiful inside and out she was…Gambit was laying quietly in her kennel, her 4 legs spread out , all relaxed. As my eyes stopped on her, she came right away to her door. At first, I thought she was a boy…and almost put a blue coat on her… She is all girl, though , an ebony beauty who was my pearl of the day…A batgirl with a greying muzzle dressed in a gorgeous dark brindle coat with amber hues. Gambit is a wonderful walker, likely house trained and very civil to all dogs met in the street or even unclose, through a fence , in the yard. She is a good sitter and takes treats very politely from my hand. She likes caresses, soft words, scratches on her head and back. She is so pretty in her own ways… Gambit fires up at the sight of a tennis ball. Her intense copper eyes light up, a smile appears on her face, she readies herself for the race….Go… Gambit is really happy and in business now. What a fun , enjoyable, loyal and loving companion she will make if you pick her as your forever best friend. Ask to meet Gambit in person, outside her den, in the yard where excitement will flow through her veins and bring out the amazing pet she is. Gambit is at the Manhattan Care Center.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
