GOTHAM – 21287
Safe - 3-1-2018 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Gotham. My animal id is #21287. I am a desexed male brown brindle dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 5 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 21-Feb-2018, with the surrender reason stated as person health – allergies.
Gotham is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Behaviorally, we suggest that Gotham would be best suited to a dig experienced home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Gotham, such a big name for this little tyke! His behavior assessment states the following: “Gotham is social and enthusiastic with all staff, consistently soft and wiggly.” What a perfect description and I second that! Sweet, wiggly, friendly, ready to hang out in my lap and give enthusiastic kisses (and yes, sometimes a few loving nibbles), he’s all tail wags and happiness. And he’s a snorter too, love that! Although too skinny in my opinion, and with a coat that needs some TLC (better nutrition will go a long way), he has an elegant prance to his step as if he was the best looking dog on the planet. His fabulous personality sure makes him seem that way. Everyone we meet is an immediate friend, he shows off his perfect sit for a treat, has the cutest little smile and a great whirlybird tail that never stops. Gotham pottied outside on our walk, but we’re told by his previous owner that he had accidents in the home, although we don’t know how often he was walked. He’s been social and playful with males and females in group play, but ignores other dogs that passed us. He lived with young children and played hard, is well behaved when left home alone, loves chew bones, and knows sit and paw. If Gotham were a human he’s the person you’d want at your party, greeting everyone, happy to see and make friends with all, working the room and enjoying it all. He’s the dog you’ll want to come home too, happy to see you, greeting you as if you’d been gone for days, and ready to wiggle his way into a cuddle. A lifetime of cuddles with Gotham is just ‘what the doctor ordered’. Come meet him today!
