04/28/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: In her cage, Nu Nu can come across as being a little sad and timid, but take her out and you’ll quickly discover that she is absolutely the sweetest! She is easy to handle (she’s even been used to help train new volunteers!), wiggly, affectionate and fun. She is very treat-motivated and will stand on her hind legs (it’s adorable) before complying when I ask her to “sit.” She plays with a toy when I toss her one, makes super soft eye contact when I pet her, and wags her tail throughout our time together — she seems so happy to have company. She is reported to be fully housetrained (and she seems it) and well behaved when home alone. She has done well with cats, kids and other dogs — the trifecta! Nu Nu even knows how to open fridges and help herself to whatever she desires, what a clever girl! What she really desires and deserves is a family…she’s the best! She would love to meet you at Brooklyn ACC.
