A volunteer writes:
Tiny Kubo is waiting by his door, wondering when his time will come to go out. He is really cute, petite, well dressed and well nourished. Kubo is ready to fly out of his kennel. He lands in my arms and once on the ground, walks like a trooper a half block and meets politely another little dog. There seems to be something slightly off with his right hind(may be an old fracture) but brave Kubo does not appear to know about it. He does his business on the way. Although quite active, Kubo settles on my lap for caresses. He is a sweet Chihuahua who needs a new home, a loving master and a veterinarian to cater to his orthopedic needs. Kubo is waiting for you at the Manhattan Care Center.
