NIKE – 12838
Safe - 11-22-2017 Manhattan Rescue: Unwanted NYC Pets Please honor your pledges: https://www.unwantednycpets.org/
Hello, my name is Nike. My animal id is #12838. I am a male white dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 4 years old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 16-Nov-2017.
Nike is at risk due to being diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex which is contagious to other dogs. Nike will likely require in home are with a course of antibiotics. Nike has a New Hope Only determination due to snapping when startled and fearful as well as potential resource guarding concerns.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: With his great looks, begging dance and pleading golden eyes, Nike is unmissable in his large kennel. He so wants out and will run ASAP toward whichever door a potential caretaker appears at. Nike is a very good walker, often looking back at me, showing some interests(short lived) in the birds and cool with other dogs met. He does his business on the way but is not a marker. He is a tiny winsy anxious and free in a pen(with or without peers), seeks mainly the attention of his caretaker, often making contact and offering standing hugs. He likes petting of course and makes little grumbling sounds of contentment when hugged or scratched on the head. He can sit on command and is polite taking treats from my hand. Collie type dogs are very active and need things to do. They need a job and like to retire in their den only for the night. That is what our Nike wants, a home, a new owner and a job and his life will be whole. Come and meet Nike at the Manhattan Care Center.
My medical notes are…
Weight: 40 lbs
Details on my behavior are…
Behavior Condition: 4. Orange
