A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Are you feeling snuggle deprived? Looking for someone who’ll stare into your eyes with unconditional love? Yearning for a handsome stranger to stroll into your life and whisk you off your feet? Then we’ve got your perfect match right here…Meet Gonzo! A platinum-coated cutie with a heart of pure gold, he’s the most gentle and gentlemanly dog I’ve ever met. Life hasn’t been all that kind to him–his coat is patchy, he needs feeding up and his nails are long–but Gonzo himself is kindness personified, so easy to handle and eager to please, so snuggly and soft, so charming in every possible way. He comes, sits and even hugs on command, takes treats and toys gently, walks nicely on leash, seems house trained and gets along famously with dogs of both sexes. It sounds like he was bonded closely to his sister Camilla (already adopted) as he was ‘always by her side’ and we’re told they even shared the same crate when bedding down for the night, how adorable is that? With Gonzo what you see is exactly what you get: a sweet, smushy teddy bear of a dog who’d make the most wonderful addition to any family. Meet him at our Manhattan Care Center today and tomorrow you could be living the dream with a doggie dreamboat at your side.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
