A volunteer writes: I thought at first that someone had cropped her ears. I was quite wrong. Mother Nature made her that way. Indeed, McGriddle (her given name) is a blend of Mountain Guarding Dog (there are many kinds) and probably Collie. Often, those dogs have short tufted ears that look too small for their face in order to protect them from the intense cold. McGriddle is an unusual dog in our neck of the woods. Although a bit unkempt (I am sure she would appreciate a good grooming that would enhance her natural beauty), McGriddle is quite stunning. She is a tall gal dressed in a thick and intact coat. I love her bushy tail that can be seen wagging softly. She often squints her eyes as she is not comfortable with day light. She is welcoming in her kennel and is leashed in no time. A good walker she is, although sometimes a little stubborn. She does her business on the way. She is fine posing for pictures, accepts a scarf around her neck and briefly sits on command. My treats are not to her taste. She is not hungry and enjoys a good weight. She might, maybe, enjoy the type of burger she was named after. McGriddle pulls with intensity toward other dogs, big and small. Leash free in a pen, she does not mind the proximity of another femal, and in the one playgroup she attended, greeted politely a male dog. McGriddle, although a bit lost, is clearly comfortable with us, humans, likes to be caressed (even on her little ears) and held close. She is friendly and sociable, a little hand shy, and seems to like quiet settings and interactions. McGriddle is one of a kind, a mature dame who would not mind to spend the rest of her life pampered and loved…in your hands. Come and meet her soon at the Manhattan Care Center.
