Hello, my name is Onyx. My animal id is #14475. I am a female black dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 4 years 3 months old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 24-Nov-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- landlord won’t allow.
Onyx is at risk for behavioral reasons. Onyx is nervous and reactive in the shelter and has been assesed as being suitable only for placement with a New Hope partner. Due to glaucoma, Onyx will be having one eye removed on Tuesday.
