IMARA – 17762
Safe - 1-12-2018 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Imara. My animal id is #17762. I am a female brown brindle dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 06-Jan-2018.
Imara is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Imara is also overweight, and would benefit from being placed on a calorie controlled diet in order to return her to a healthy weight. Behaviorally, we suggest that Imara would be best suited to a dog experienced home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Imara is an adorable, medium sized compact gal with doe eyes and crescent ears who is so elegantly dressed in her oatmeal and coffee brindley coat. She is a bit shy and tentative in her doings, but with time and patience, she comes along, starts wagging her tail and accepting caresses. She even attempts a timid standing hug. She does a lot of sniffing in the street or the yard, I guess to try to situate herself in a world she does not know. Having walked her a few times now, I can say that she is a little bit more comfortable nearing her peers. Imara can sit on command and does like treats that she takes politely from my hand. She does like her freedom and sometimes barks in her kennel. Once out, she is as calm as a summer sea…and likes to sit by my side, observing the area, peacefully. Imara needs, for the time being, a calm and understanding home. But I would not be surprised to see this pretty mouse transform into the life of the party in her new home. Come and meet this little beauty at the Manhattan Care Center and make her yours.
My medical notes are…
