MAMA BEAR – 19022
Safe - 2-5-2018 Manhattan Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Mama Bear. My animal id is #19022. I am a desexed female chocolate dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 5 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 23-Jan-2018, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- homeless.
Mama Bear is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Behaviorally, we suggest that Mama Bear would be best suited to a dog experienced home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Mama Bear is such a silly clown! This petite Princess acts shy at first, but toss some toys around the yard and MB instantly transforms into a happy, nutty little ball of energy. She does endless ‘zoomies’, enjoys a game of chase, and fetches her toys back before giving them up easily for another throw. Initially a bit fearful of new people, MB is always very gentle in showing her discomfort, and does appreciate soft petting and endearments, just at her own pace. In her former home she was playful with kids of all ages, but does have a tendency to guard her food, so would be more comfortable in a family with respectful older children who understand that sometimes a lady needs to eat in peace. Described by her owner as friendly, affectionate, playful, shy, pushy, confident and excitable, MB loved sleeping in her own bed and had no need for a crate as she was always well behaved when left home alone. Exuberantly energetic at the dog park and in playgroup, she meets her new four-legged friends with polite good manners, then gallops around with the pack, tail joyfully wagging. We’re told MB knows commands for sit, down, come and ‘at ease'(stay) and though we’ve yet to see it at the Care Center, she is said to pull hard on walks, so a harness-style leash is a must in her welcome home gift basket. MB may make you work a tiny bit harder to earn her trust than other dogs do, but once comfortable with a new person or situation, she’s an absolute delight, and laughter and good times are 100 percent guaranteed. A hidden gem for the experienced treasure hunter, Mama Bear is ready and waiting for you to find her at our Manhattan Care Center. Ask to meet this funny girl today!
