A volunteer writes: Lady is a dog for all occasions. A sweet and well-mannered companion, a playmate for children, her own peers, and even a…ferret, and an athlete disguised in a middle-aged dame outfit. Lady is poised and modest-looking in her kennel. Her beauty reveals itself once out in the open. She has been so well cared for by her former family! A perfect honey color coat wrapping a trim body, long sturdy legs, butterfly ears and sharp chesnut eyes. She seems ready for the Olympics. Lady walks quite nicely on the leash, not forgetting to do her business on the way. She is totally cool with other dogs met and enjoys her time with other pooches in playgroups. She sits on command, takes treats gently from my hand, and poses handsomely for pictures. She runs fast and jumps high for a tennis ball and does not tire easily. I guess she is another soccer mom. After a good ball game, more treats and some petting, Lady and I got more and more acquainted. She was all relaxed and spreads herself on her back on the beautiful green grass…time for belly rubs. Lady is with us for no fault of her own. She comes with glowing comments from her former owner which, together with our own observations at the care center, make her a wonderful dog to join a family even comprising kids and other dogs. Lady is at the Manhattan Care Center, dreaming to start her life all over again with you.
Additional comment: Lady will never stop amazing me. She has remained composed, sociable, smart, lively, playful and loving throughout her stay at the care center, even now that she has a cold. She is a dream to be with. Lady deserves a great owner or family who will be so lucky to have a gem like her at their side. Yes, she is 8 years old, but great genes as well as outstanding upbringing almost promise many more good years of love, sharing, and fun. Lady is a shining star. Let her bright up your life with her wonderful presence!!!
During intake Lady was very calm and affectionate. She would often roll over and expose her belly for rubs and would wag her tail and prance towards the counseor when called. She allowed all handling.

- BRUNO - A1105525
SUPER URGENT 03/17/17 A volunteer writes: "And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while." Bruno's namesake Mr. Mars, just had to have been thinking of him when he penned that little ditty. Bruno, aka, "the best smile in town," is what we call the total package. Gorgeous? Check. Well-mannered? Check, check. Affectionate, loving, and sweet? Check, check, check. Lived happily in his former home with two other pups and a free-roaming ferret? Check, please! It's simply not going to get any better than that. Except that it does. For as perfect as Bruno is on paper, he's even better in real life. Bruno is easily leashed and off we go for a romp on a gorgeous day. The sun is out, the birds are singing, and Bruno is lighting up the neighborhood with that dazzling grin. "And when I see your face, there's not a thing that I would change." Nope not a thing. At 7 years young, Bruno's ivory coat is perfectly pristine, his hazel eyes warm and inviting, and his beautiful cow-print coat runs clean to the tip of his endlessly long tail (perfect for wagging) and is dipped in more vanilla. Once at the park, Bruno shows off his manners by sitting sweetly for photos, taking treats gently, and ignoring the hustle and bustle of the city surrounding us on this spring-like day. Sitting with him this way on this bench, I know there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be. And Bruno, well, he's just perfect. Just the way he is. Bruno is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan's ACC.
