PAPA – 20196
Safe - 2-21-2018 Manhattan Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Papa. My animal id is #20196. I am a male tan dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a returns on 17-Feb-2018.
Papa is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Behaviorally, we suggest that Papa would be best suited to an adult only home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: A beautiful dog, inside and out. A good dog, a loyal dog, one who will trust and love his master, no matter what. You might just see a brown and shy dog in a kennel, I get it. But what you see is not the real Papa. Yes, Papa is his name and he is with us for no fault of his own. His owner past away. Papa stayed with a neighbor for a few days before brought to us. He was friendly with all and respectful of the resident small dog and cat. Papa is slowly coming out of his shell as he understands that we mean well and empathize with his loss. I simply fell in love with him after getting my first kiss at the end of a bonding session. I knew he could trust. I knew I could trust him. It was written all over him. Although I know I owe a walk to many dogs in the care center, Papa gets to see me at least three times when I am there. I can’t help it. He is now most often found at his door, still with puzzled puppy eyes but so ready for his stroll to the park or around the block. He does not mind pigeons, squirrels(are they not supposed to hibernate?) and other dogs. He loves to hop on a bench and squeeze against me(or a staff) for hugs, kisses and comfort. Papa is such a friend, one I am pretty sure got a lot of love and good care from his former master. I (we)dream for Papa to find the most wonderful home ever(I wish it was mine) and a new loving owner. Papa is at the Manhattan Care Center, waiting to meet you.
My medical notes are…
