HORATIO – 18524
Safe - 1-25-2018 Manhattan Rescue: Cat Assistance Please honor your pledges: http://catassistanceny.org/donate.html.php
Hello, my name is Horacio. My animal id is #18524. I am a desexed male tan dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 5 years old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 17-Jan-2018.
Horacio 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 Horacio would be best suited to a dog experienced home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: With chin whiskers like my Aunt Lotte, and a pouty underlip like my Uncle George, I was destined to fall in love with this chunky monkey, and fall in love I did! Pleasantly plump in his well-groomed tan coat, the winter coat I brought outside for him to put on didn’t quite fit around his middle. We had fun trying, and I got a kiss for my efforts! Horacio is likely housetrained, is friendly and easy, and while he could use a bit of improvement in the leash walking department, he may do better in a harness (which I didn’t have). As chunky as he is, Horacio had no problem hopping up on the bench to sit beside me for some petting, tail wagging all the while. He gently took some treats, and then explored the pen. He’s an awesome low rider, blockhead, chunky boy who was clearly well taken care of physically and socially before joining us. Looking to add a hunk to your family? You’ve found him!
