NINO – 9928
Safe - 10-29-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Nino. My animal id is #9928. I am a desexed male tan 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 16-Oct-2017.
Nino 9928 is at risk for a respiratory illness (CIRDC). He also has dermatitis. Behaviorally, Nino has been calm and social with his human caretakers and with other dogs, and is suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: I’m in love, and while I may be biased, I know that everyone will (and should) fall in love with this awesome dog. You just need to come meet him. Likely housetrained, great on leash, sits and shakes paw, loves to give kisses, gentle, sweet, looks up when we talk to him as if he understands everything I’m saying, has soft soulful eyes, a gently wagging tail, and as another volunteer said, just has a “great vibe” to him. Nino ignores other dogs we pass on our walk, including a small yappy one that lunged at him. Good boy, Nino!! His one vice? Squirrels are just too good to pass up, but even that is manageable and easy. It’s no surprise that Nino rocked his behavior assessment with perfect scores across the board, and even solicited attention by nudging the assessor’s hand for petting. Love that! In playgroup with both males and females, he hasn’t engaged in much play, but greets both males and females politely. So gentle, so sweet, he’d be mine if I could. But since I can’t, run, don’t walk, to meet this softest of big boys, schmush his jowly face and give him a big smooch. Your new best friend, confidant, loving companion. You’ll love him.
My medical notes are…
