MARCELINA – 18825
Safe - 2-1-2018 Manhattan Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Marcelina. My animal id is #18825. I am a desexed female brown brindle dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 10 months 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 20-Jan-2018, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- homeless.
Marcellina is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Behaviorally, we recommend that Marcellina would be best suited to a dog experienced home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Need incentive to get up in the morning? Need a jogging partner? Marcelina isn’t going to let you slack off, as she loves to run and play, has a lot of energy, and is ready to go go go. All puppy bouncy and fun, she’s absolutely stunning in her mahogany coat with gold accents, her sweet eyes make soft contact, especially when I have a treat in my hand. She wants to meet every dog we pass in the park, and is so good with other dogs she’s a playgroup greeter dog, meaning she’s social, playful and tolerant of other dog behaviors. She’s also been named Staff Pick of the Week, so honors abound for Miss Marcelina. Marcelina is looking for an active person or family, as she’s all puppy fun and energetic. Couch potatoes need not apply, but if a gorgeous, fun, affectionate and active pup is your ideal partner, look no further, you’ve found her.
