BEAR aka HOPE – 13068
Safe - 11-30-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Bear. My animal id is #13068. I am a male brown dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 19-Nov-2017.
Bear is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Bear requires an adult only home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: A rising star, a young actor with a candid face every teen would fall in love with…this is how I see Bear, a young man we have right now within our walls. He is gorgeous, elegant, slender, and his beauty unravels as his wariness slowly fades away. Bear was initially at the back of his kennel. He likes treats, and that got him to his door and to accept my leash, as well as a caress on his head. He was hesitant out in the street, staying rather close to me. Darting bikes and honking cars do not care about sensitive dogs. A second tour around the block brought Bear’s timid tail out, and I must say that our stroll felt much better to both of us. At first, hand shy, Bear started to look at me with a bruised puppy look and accepted my caresses all over. This young guy will win the heart of many once he completely comes out of his shell. Dry liver helping, Bear posed very naturally for pictures. He is a born model. He got quite a number of compliments while we were in the waiting room. Bear walked back nicely and willingly to his den, and when I came to say good night, he was at his door, took a rawhide from my hand and went to chew it on his bed. We all love progress, and Bear is certainly moving in the right direction. Now, this young man needs a home to call his own and a family to love. Come and meet him soon at the Manhattan Care Center.
