MARIST – 15902
Safe - 1-27-2018 Manhattan Rescue: Heaven Can Wait Rescue - NY Please honor your pledges:
Hello, my name is Marist. My animal id is #15902. I am a male white dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 7 years 1 months 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a aco impound on 11-Dec-2017.
Marist is at risk due to medical condition. He has kidney disease, but should have an abdominal ultrasound and further diagnostics to rule out neoplasia. Marist should go to a single dog home with previous dog experience.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Marist is a cool cat(I hope you love cats..), a smooth operator who has already conquered the heart of many here at the care center. Even other dogs like him, making his time in playgroups with his peers a breeze. Marist is calm in his kennel and his one blue eye shines like a precious gem in the dark. He comes slowly to his door, gets leashed and goes for a very peaceful stroll around the block, not forgetting of course to do his business. What a blessing to walk such a well mannered dog! In the yard, Marist explores the area quietly. He likes to rest in the middle of the turf and wait for treats that he takes so gently from my hand. He likes to be caressed and even with some coaxing, ends up on my lap for more petting. Marist is no couch potato, though. He loves to play, run after a tennis ball and bring it back toward me, no guarding involved. Marist is definitively a dog to consider if what you are looking for is a well behaved and loving companion as well as a lively and playful four legged best friend. Marist is at the Manhattan Care Center. Ask to meet him soon… Another volunteer writes: Move over Paul, there’s another blue eyed hunk in our midst. Marist is a head turner, no doubt about it. He’s gorgeous, his weight perfect for his size, his quiet demeanor making him a perfect companion for a leisurely stroll to the park. Marist is likely house-trained, super mellow and chill, gets playful for a minute in a pen, and has enjoyed running fun in playgroups with females (he has not been with males as of this writing). Marist enjoys being petted, wags his tail at people coming over to talk to me, and was soooooo patient when I talked to staff for a while. What a good boy. Later in the day, Marist is lying quietly on his bed, opening his eyes as he senses me near, but content to hang out on the bed. From what we’ve observed, Marist seems like the perfect couch potato companion, a nice walk, a bit of play and then content to mellow out with his person. As my mother would say, ‘what’s not to like?’.
