KATO – 14831
Safe - 12-1-2017 Manhattan Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Kato. My animal id is #14831. I am a desexed male gray dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 5 years old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 28-Nov-2017, with the surrender reason stated as animal health – other.
Kato is at risk for behavioral reasons. Kato has been assessed as being suitable for placement only with a New Hope partner. Kato is usually a well behaved dog, but Kato suffers seizures, and his behavior at these times becomes erratic, and he requires placement with a person experienced with and capable of managing this behavior.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes:”Angel face” takes all its meaning when looking at Kato, a five year old gent whose face is so puppy like, so innocent. My grandmother would say: “On peut lui donner le Bon Dieu sans confession…” Kato is indeed adorable, a tad chunky, impeccably dressed and so welcoming in his kennel. He has this way to sit so obediently for treats or just on command with a most expressive look. I am a good little boy. I so want to be loved and be your friend… Kato is a good and pleasant walker, likely house trained(no marking involved) and very polite with all other dogs met. He likes when passerby’s stop and compliment him. He is a social dog. His demeanor is so soft and engaging. Free in a pen, he seems to enjoy the presence of other dogs, males or females on the other side of the fence. He looks so relaxed and his tail is wagging non stop. Kato likes toys and balls, will run/jump after them and occasionally bring them back toward me. He does not guard his treasures He comes right away when called and he loves treats. I caught him searching my bag for more, scolded him gently and it was all right with him. Kato is with us as his family, although very fond of him, did not feel they could assume the responsibility of a dog with seizures. When you think about it, in the human world, so many famous people or celebrities had or have epilepsy… Modern medicine does miracles and our friend Kato, in caring and loving hands and with the help of a veterinarian could have a long and happy life as a beloved pet. Come and meet Kato at the Manhattan Care Center. He so dreams to be your forever best friend.
