JANIS JOPLIN – 17626
Safe - 2-19-2018 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Janis Joplin. My animal id is #17626. I am a female gray dog . The shelter thinks I am about 3 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 04-Jan-2018.
Janis Joplin is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Behaviorally, we have no concerns for Janis Joplin, whom we believe would be suitable for most homes.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: It took me a while to decipher Janice. She was hiding in her shy shell. Why?–you would ask. She is so beautiful. She walks nicely, does her business while in the street, sits when requested. Well, at our fourth encounter, Janice started to thaw, put her head in my lap and licked my hands, no treats involved. I discovered and heard, too, that although she does not run after balls, she loves rope toys, playing very nicely tug of war without guarding. Some dogs, like some people, play hard to get, but when they let you in, you are in forever. Janice seems to prefer our company than the one of her peers, but if one looks well, a match is out there for any pooch or person. Janice is at the Manhattan Care Center, dreaming to offer her love to a new person or family.
Another volunteer writes: No husky voice belter our Janis Joplin, but rather a sweet, sultry, gentle, calm gorgeous grey. Ask her what her favorite thing to do is, and she’ll cuddle up next to you, head on your chest, and say, “THIS”. She kisses, she snuggles, she snorts, her tail wags, she’s a sweetheart through and through. She’s easily leashed, hesitated at the top of the stairs but figured it out and came down easily, pottied the moment we were outside and has nice leash manners. She does pull towards other dogs she sees on the street, but is manageable and with some positive reinforcement training will learn to ignore others. She’s the warmth, the sweetness, the gentleness the perfect girl with whom to cuddle on a cold winter night.
