A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Meet Ping Pong, the Belly Rub King of Manhattan! He may look like a diamond in the rough but this happy grey hippo couldn’t shine any brighter if he tried and everyone is head-over-heels in love with his affectionate nature and playful spirit. You can’t keep a good dog down and Ping Pong is one of the best! Always happy to make new friends and get out for a walk, he strolls like a dream on leash, seems very house trained and hops down stairs with ease. In playgroup Ping Pong’s polite but independent and if the mood strikes he likes a game of tug-o-war too but his favorite hobbies seem to be lounging ‘froggy style’ on the floor and wiggling onto his back (or your lap!) for lots and lots of belly rubs. With his straight A behavior report card and the biggest heart in the cutest little low-rider body, this guy is so ready to go home sweet home. Ask for him by name at our Manhattan Care Center and get ready to hear his praises sung far and wide. Ping Pong is more than just a great pet, he’s a legend!
Details on my behavior are…
2/11: When introduced off leash to the female greeter dog, Ping Pong briefly sniffs, then wanders away.
