07/05/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I have always been partial to Chihuahuas…and Hal Jordan is a nice little mensch. He is a bit shy, was nervous upon arrival, and can be found at the back of his kennel. He gets up when summoned, gets leashed easily, is picked up and safely placed on the ground. Hal J is a very good walker. Stairs are not a problem, neither are dogs he salutes politely in playgroups. He does his business outside his den with only very slight marking. Hal J comes when I call him and accepts petting as well as the lap. He likes to be caressed and kissed. His coat is well groomed and his health seems fine. Hal J is your typical Chihuahua in looks and temperament. His home is his kingdom and his master, his king. Loyalty is the hallmark of the breed. Come and meet Hal J at the Manhattan Care Center and make him yours.
