GRISWALD – 15653
Safe - 12-21-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Griswald. My animal id is #15653. I am a male black dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 7 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 07-Dec-2017.
Griswald is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. We suggest that Griswald is best suited to a dog experienced home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Your “Christmas Vacation” is likely to go much smoother than our Griswald’s namesake with this 7 year-old sweetheart by your side. And really, even if your holiday does take a turn into a flood of rambunctious family members, epic plumbing snafus, furry feline disasters, and one very burned down tree, I’m confident with this face gazing up at you all will still seem right with the world. Griswald easily hops out of his kennel, shaking out some stiffness in his back legs before joining me out in the snow. Is he happy about so much of the white stuff raining down upon us? Well, no. Or about as happy as his soggy volunteer. But he puts on brave face and gives me plenty of wags while we finish our wintry photo shoot. And oh, when Gris spots a pup in a neighboring pen! Well, he lights up brighter than the Rockefeller tree. And as he munches savory snacks from the palm of my hand, it’s almost like the warm sun is shining. Griswald comes to us as a stray, so much of his past is unknown. He is a tiny little nugget who could definitely benefit from a few extra holiday cookies, and also the love of a family — no matter how rambunctious — that will make every one of his days feel like Christmas. So ready yourself for this holiday season by having your very best friend at your side. One who’ll warm your home and your heart through any amount of snow, and make every last day feel like Christmas. Griswald is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan ACC.
