GIZMO – 17234
Hello, my name is Gizmo. My animal id is #17234. I am a desexed male tan dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 6 months 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 29-Dec-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person health – allergies.
Gizmo is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Gizmo is reported to have growled in his previous home when attempts were made to remove toys, treats or food, and for this reason we recommend an adult only home for Gizmo.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Gizmo is a very handsome young man, a red head, quite poised in his kennel. He has been outstandingly cared for by his former owners, being of perfect weight and wearing a most beautiful coat. He lived harmoniously with many older children, was friendly and outgoing with all, playful with dogs his size (timid with small ones) and very playful. Gizmo is quite sociable here at the care center, a good walker who seems to like other dogs, gentle, giving standing hugs, happy to be petted and very playful with the ball or a toy. He seems to like to keep them for himself, so we just exchange one toy for another, slipping a treat here and there as a reward for good behavior. I forgot to say that Gizmo is a very good sitter, taking duck jerkies quite politely from my hand. I really like Gizmo, a very good looking young lad, friendly and so playful. If you have the talent or the time to improve his training, Gizmo will make a very nice and loving pet for an active owner. Come and meet Gizmo at the Manhattan Care Center.
