A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes:
I call him “The Greeter”, the kind of person who in a hospital welcomes you with a smile, reassure you and guides you when you feel lost…. Pablo is at his door, all eyes on you, his body wiggling and his tail wagging…Thump, thump, thump….Yep, he got a “happy tail” as a result…. Pablo is so glad to see people and so ready when you open his den. He loves to stroll around the block, give standing hugs to whoever wants(he does like to lick people’s faces…) and meet other dogs. He does pull some on the leash and does his business on the way. It is a pleasure to see his excitement.Pablo can sit on command and comes on the double when called. He absolutely loves treats…..Pablo was relinquished into our care because of housing issues and comes with excellent recommendations. He lived and played with small kids(being a bit boisterous, older kids might be more suitable for now), enjoyed a ball game and was very friendly and loving to his human friends… We all like Pablo very much and would like for this highly sociable , lively and friendly pet to find a home for the holidays and many years to come…. Come soon to the Manhattan Care Center, meet Pablo and take him home as your forever best friend.
