A volunteer writes: Happy would so love to be happy again and put a big smile on his face like the one he had when he entered the care center. He thought he was at an outing, meeting new friends with his owner. I love that intake picture that shows me that Happy has it in him to be joyous. I met Happy the day after his arrival. He is a sizable JRT at 31lbs. He had his back to the kennel door and his face was smudged against the back wall. I petted him and slowly, he turned around, let me pick him up and off we left for the street and then the yard. His first task was to do his business (his den is very clean and we are told that he is housetrained). His mood was “lighter”. He accepted a scarf and my caresses and took tiny bits of soft treats. Happy is a good little walker and does well the stairs, too. When I read what his long time owner (14 years) told us about him, I said to myself. “What a good little dog who has served so well his family”. Yes, he is 14 and…a bit overweight, but he still has a sharp brain, four good legs and mostly a loving heart. Happy needs to get his spirit back and he will do so only in a real new home and with a caring new owner or family. Happy is at the Manhattan Care Center, dreaming of you.
