A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Luna is quite eye catching. She is a well cared for dog, healthy, stunning and elegant. Her weight is perfect, she is so well dressed and she prances like a pony in the street. She so reminds me of a Pharaoh Hound in a larger version. She is a bit shy at first but at our third walk, Luna was much more confident. Instead of exploring the pen, she stayed around me, accepting gladly caresses and treats. She even ran after a ball, took it in her mouth but then, let go… Luna is a good walker, not a puller and is likely house trained as indicated by her former family. She does not mind dogs nearing us but in playgroups with her peers(she never met before..), she is a bit uncomfortable. Luna was surrendered into our care as her long time owners could not keep up with the needs of an energetic and active dog. She is described as friendly with children and other dogs but shy with new people and novel situations. She would prefer gentle handling than rough playing or harsh scolding. In a nutshell, Luna is a sensitive soul who would do well in a stimulating while nurturing and soothing home, in the hands of experienced owners. Gorgeous Luna is so worth it! Come and meet her soon at the Manhattan Care Center.
Another volunteer writes: She’s gorgeous, soft and silky, wagging her tail with good conversation and some petting. Surrendered by the only family she’s ever known, it’s clear from reading her former family’s notes that they never took the time to work with her. She seems to be shy with new people, but warmed up quickly as we walked to the park. Luna showed me her ‘sit’, took treats gently, quietly watched other dogs walk by and leaned in for petting as I stroked her. Luna will need a soft approach and positive reinforcement training (aka lots of treats). She went potty as soon as we were out the door (her former family tells us she’s housetrained), and while she can be shy and uncomfortable at first has shown that with a soft approach and quiet voice she’ll do just fine. We want to erase the confusion we see in her beautiful eyes, and replace it with love and confidence. Are you her special person?
