Sometimes all that glisters really IS gold and beautiful Lab-Sharpei mix Glitter is the perfect example; the sweetest, gentlest, most low-key girl you could ever hope to meet. Having recently lost her home and family to eviction, she’s understandably not ready to throw a happy party just yet but that doesn’t stop her from quietly enjoying snuggles and petting, doling out little flurries of snuffle-kisses or heading outdoors to do some exploring. Glitter walks nicely on leash, keeps a clean den and takes care of her business not long after we hit the yard and she seems friendly and sociable with other dogs too, meeting pups of all sizes with her tiny ears perked and tail softly wagging. I offer some food which she sniffs politely then just as politely rejects and a squeaky toy that holds her interest for only a few seconds before she tries to direct our walk off down the street and the freedom that beckons beyond. It seems the ‘treats’ Glitter craves most are a home and family to call her own and she knows they’re out there somewhere because she’s enjoyed them before. A great go-anywhere kind of pet who couldn’t be easier to handle, this gorgeous girl aced her behavior assessment and would make a wonderful addition to any calm yet active family. We haven’t seen Glitter smile during her stay with us but I guarantee that she’ll be beaming, if only on the inside, once you make her yours for keeps. So forget the Olympics for a bit and visit our Manhattan Care Center to take home the only gold you’ll ever need–a lifetime of love and loyalty awaits and her name is Glitter.
