FROM 10/15: A volunteer writes: “I LOVE HER” is what a staff person said to me as she saw me leave the building with Kalu. And now I do too. It’s impossible to not fall in love with this gentle, sweet and unassuming pup. She was lying quietly in her kennel as I approached, standing up easily with a gentle tail wag as I unlatched her door. Her leash manners are lovely, she’s likely housetrained and as we walk through the park we take a break for some photos. All of a sudden the wind picked up and leaves were blowing quickly by, Kalu swiveling her head as they blew past and then looking up at me as if to say, ‘that was pretty cool wasn’t it?’. Yes it was Kalu, and so are you! Off leash in a pen we take more pictures, Kalu making soft eye contact, showing off her sit and taking her reward treat gently. We kiss, we snuggle, and Kalu nudges my hand for more if I stop petting her. In group play Kalu can be a bit assertive and when offered correction will walk away and hop up on the bench. As I take some notes with Kalu sitting by my side, I stroke her head and promise her that her new family will find her and she’ll have her happily ever after. Will you help me make my promise to her come true?
FROM 06/16: A volunteer writes: I met Kalu as she was in the arms of her adoring caretaker, the very same staff who was singing her praises at Kalu’s first stay at the care center. Kalu, I must say is a very loving and affectionate dog, the velcro type who is born to be on a lap and kiss galore. She was being bathed with dry shampoo as although she was loved by her former master, her care was poor. Her ailing owner indeed coud not even take her out anymore for walks, cut her nails, treat her ear infection or mend her raw coat….Kalu needs TLC under all angles…She is quite sociable, comes right away when called and sits on command and definitively for treats. Kalu always had a weakness for food although she is not skinny. She walks nicely on the leash and does her business on the way. She is also nice with other dogs met and does not chase the birds . Kalu comes with excellent comments from her former owner…Outgoing with new people, playful with children and other pooches, free of handling issues and a good girl when left alone in the house. This wonderful gal is so hoping for a safe haven, a caring , loving and forever home and family… Come and meet Kalu at the Manhattan Care Center, make her dream come true and adopt yourself a great new friend….
Kalu is a 3 year old spayed APBT mix. She originally came to ACC as a stray. She was found tethered in a building hallway and brought to ACC by police. Her owner adopted her from ACC 7 months ago but had to surrender her due to his declining health. Kalu has bleeding paw pads, overgrown nails, and pink irritated skin on her underside. Her owner has also noticed bleeding from her genitals and small bumps on her ears and body.
Kalu is friendly/outgoing with new people. She’s relaxed, playful, and tolerant with children. She plays gently with people. She’s relaxed, playful, tolerant, and plays gently with dogs she meets. She hasn’t bit anyone.
Kalu doesn’t mind storms. She doesn’t mind when someone takes her food/treat/toy, moved her off furniture, holds/restrains her, wakes her up, or bathes her. She’s friendly with strangers who approach her home/family.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
Kalu’s family describes her as friendly, affectionate, playful, mellow, and medium energy. She sometimes follows her owner around. She likes stuffed toys and plays fetch and chase. She slept on a dog bed or on the couch. She ate dry Purina dog food with gravy for dogs. She’s housetrained and was pottying on grass and dirt outside. Her owner stopped walking her outside to help her paws heal. She has since been pottying on wee-wee pads in the bathroom. She doesn’t have accidents and only potties outside or on wee-wee pads. Kalu is well-behaved while home alone. She sits, lies down, comes, and stays when asked. She went for brisk walks and pulled on her leash.
Kalu moved around a lot, pulled on her leash, and whined/barked loudly (high pitched). She had a loose, wiggly body while I pet her and scanned her (-). She sat when asked and took treats gently.
