GOBI – 11082
Gone - 11-4-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Gobi. My animal id is #11082. I am a male black dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 29-Oct-2017.
Gobi is at risk due to behavior (New Hope Only determination). While there has been some improvement he still remains aloof with handlers and has a history of growling, lunging and snapping during handling. He does have a heart murmur but no other known medical conditions at this time.
A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: He’s so gorgeous and it was my mission to spend time with Gobi and get to know him. He didn’t disappoint! Likely housetrained, potty was a priority and when that was taken care of we took a short walk before heading into the backyard. Gobi pulls on leash so a harness is a good idea, and as a matter of fact he was found wearing a harness and a broken leash. Of course, we’re hoping his owner will find him but if that doesn’t happen someone has a chance to adopt an awesome dog. Off leash in the yard the very first thing Gobi did was pick up a toy and take a short run! Poetry in motion! After running around with a toy, and investigating others I brought into the pen with me, Gobi and I settled on a good game of tug. I threw the toy, he brought it back for a quick tug, I threw it again and repeat, repeat, repeat. He’s a master player! Tail wagging and smiling the ear to ear grin pitties are known for, Gobi has clearly been a cherished companion before joining us. His coat gleams, his nails are trimmed and his weight perfect for his size. He comes when I call to him, enjoys some petting and we share a quick kiss. Gobi made my day, and will make yours, and your week, and your month, and your year and your forever. Come meet him today!
