A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: I love a spry little pooch like Jeda. She is such a lively pixie who according to the meaning of her name, should be at your side through thick and thin, a loyal companion. Jeda is certainly a lot of fun to be with. She is super sociable, outgoing, a big tail wagger and so attuned to her caretakers. Come, sit, stay, she is game…. She enjoys the attention, sweet words and caresses. She loves treats and sits just at the sight of them. She is a “people dog” and in playgroups with her peers, chooses to stay next to her human friends. Jeda is a good walker, possibly house trained and polite with all dogs neared even up close . She is a soccer mom , runs, jumps and twirls in the air after a tennis ball. She does not guard her stuff as she is a smart girl and knows that it takes two to play. Jeda is a bit on the thin side. Her skin needs mending . Nothing though that a good diet, proper housing, all sprinkled with love, can not handle. So, come to the Manhattan Care Center and meet Ms Congeniality. She would love to be your bestie….for ever and ever.
