PEGGY MAY – 21633
Safe - 3-5-2018 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Peggy May. My animal id is #21633. I am a female gray dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 26-Feb-2018.
Peggy May is at risk for both medical and behavior reasons. Peggy May has been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Peggy May’s behavior at the care center has been deteriorating, she has started to show stress behaviors such as pacing in kennel, growling and hard barking at people and other dogs walking past. We recommend Peggy May be placed in a dog experienced, adult only home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Peggy May. The girl so nice we named her twice. It’s fitting that our beautiful girl has double the names, as I have double the praise to sing of her. First, there’s her obvious beauty. A gorgeous, grey ghost with ears like doves perched atop her head and a coat so soft you’ll find your eyes falling closed every single time you pet her. But little Peggy is far from an untouchable piece of art, masterpiece though she is. She is the wiggliest, silliest, goofiest, loveliest, most lovey-dovey, snuggly, cuddly girl you’ll ever know. Good luck sitting alone when our munchkin is nearby. Peggy sees every lap as an open invitation and every pair of arms as parentheses just waiting to hold her. And how lucky that makes you. Because to have a bad day, a sour moment, or a cloud-filled sky just isn’t a possibility with this superstar in your orbit. Peggy May comes to us as a stray so much of her past is unknown. I know she is a beautiful walker, a well-mannered taker of treats, and one of the most people-loving creatures I’ve ever had the pleasure to know. In fact Peggy is such a people pup that she would prefer to be your one and only, the sole furry apple of your eye. But with a shimmering light that shines this bright, trust me – you’ll never be wanting for another. Peggy would do best with an experienced family who can help further her socialization with other pups but without any others in the home for now. And one with plenty of laps for her to squeeze her way on to, and plenty of arms to hold her tight.Peggy May. So nice we named her twice. And double the sweetness, fun, and love to give some lucky someone for the rest of their life. Peggy May is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan ACC.
