JASON – 9621
Safe - 10-13-2017 Brooklyn
Hello, my name is Jason. My animal id is #9621. I am a desexed male white dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 14 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 13-Oct-2017.
Jason 9621 is at risk for his medical condition, including a soft tissue mass, severe dental disease, and conjunctivitis. Please see the veterinary notes for further details and clarification. Behaviorally, Jason came in as a stray so we have no known history, but he has been social and calm with both humans and other dogs and is suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience.
