MORGAN – 21191
Safe - 3-1-2018 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Morgan. My animal id is #21191. I am a female black dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 20-Feb-2018.
Morgan 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 Morgan would be best suited to a dog experienced home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: It’s hard to say with certainty what my favorite thing is about Morgan. Is it her long, wagging tail? Forever blurry with excitement at every moment life has to offer? Or is it her silly smile? One that covers her face in its entirety, starting with crinkled eyes and ending in flopping tongue, and is as infectious as it is sweet. But, really, we can’t forget those Oreo cookie toes! Twenty opportunities for black and white colored sweetness and just a delight to behold. Morgan may be a Petite Pocket Pittie at just 37 lbs., but this little princess packs a punch. She lets me know straight away from her kennel that, “Woof! I’m ready for my walk please!” I’m ready, too, and so away we go with Morgan excitedly leading the way. And once those famous toes hit the grass of the park on a mild winter’s day, that infectious smile breaks open like the sun from out the cloud. And now the whole world seems brighter. Morgan comes to us as a stray, so much of her past is unknown. I know that she takes her treats gently, loves any opportunity to meet new people, and is surprisingly patient and tolerant for her young age, having no issue at all being tethered. On our way back from our walk, Morgan is still nothing but smiles. Now with a head full of memories from today’s endless fun and a heart full of hope for tomorrow. And when she hops effortlessly back into her kennel she turns to give me another “Woof!” And the look in those crinkled eyes could mean nothing else other than “thank you.” Morgan is a young, active girl who would do best with an experienced family. One who can help her perfect her leash manners and further her socialization with other pups. I don’t think I can ever say what my favorite thing is about Morgan. But I know tonight that when my head hits the pillow I’ll be dreaming of Oreo toes. Morgan is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan ACC.
