**NOT AT SHELTER – TEMPORARILY IN ACC FOSTER** FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT: [email protected]
Hello, my name is Kiss. My animal id is #17612. I am a female brown dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 2 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 03-Jan-2018.
Kiss is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Behaviorally, due to fear and timidity displayed in the care center, and Kiss obviously being uncomfortable around other dogs, we suggest that Kiss would be best suited to a dog experienced home, ideally in which she was the only dog.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: She was my Hershey Kiss yesterday, one of my favorite dogs to meet although, yes, she was at first timid. Kiss, all dressed up in Belgian chocolate, accepted a scarf and a coat, that I removed inside so as not to hide her beauty. She is such a gentle gal, a good walker, a perfect sitter (treat or no treat) and a great trooper despite the snow melting salt that was stuck between her digits. She accepted without a whisper its removal. She neared other dogs in the street and the hallways without any problem. We played a little inside a warm room, her shyness evaporating to the point that she ended up on my lap for hugs….and kisses. I never miss an opportunity to spend time with Kiss. We have had many walks and ball games in the yard since her arrival. She has bloomed into a lively little gal, hopping on her hinds like a rabbit. She is now a wonderful lap dog and a sweet kisser just like indicated by her name, so well chosen for her. Kiss has been well cared for, she looks healthy and is well dressed. She knows her basic commands and her ways around us, humans. Kiss needs gentle and loving hands and I know she will be a wonderful, kind and loyal forever best friend. Come and meet her soon at the Manhattan Care Center.
Another volunteer writes: Miss Kiss. So sweet and gentle, easy to be with, initially shy for a few minutes, and then loving, bouncy and happy to play with some toys. Low to the ground in her perfect figure, she sits when asked and I’ve never met a dog who takes treats more gently than she. The very, very, very edge of her teeth touch the treat, I don’t feel her one bit on my hand. Fabulous on leash, so easy to be with, some easy chat and a soft voice….Miss Kiss is ready to live up to her name with her new human partner. I loved my time with her and was sad to put her back in her kennel although she hopped right back in knowing that’s what was expected. Don’t miss the chance to meet her and give her time to overcome some shyness. They say the best things in life are worth waiting for, and a kiss from Kiss confirms that saying.
