Hello, my name is Potato. My animal id is #15811. I am a male tan dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 1 years old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 09-Dec-2017.
Potato is at risk due to being diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex. Potato will likely require in home care with a course of antibiotics. There are no behavior concerns for Potato at this time, average determination.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Cute is the first word that comes to mind when I look at Potato. A giant rabbit in a cow print coat, rather trim but well dressed and super friendly. Potato is ready when you are, leashed in no time and the best little walker. He does his business on the way without marking, does not chase the birds and did not respond when another dog, although slightly smaller than him barked at us. He cried when the salt used to melt the snow hurt his paws and let me clean him without any problem. A treat was in order. Potato gave me a perfect sit and gulped a handful of duck jerkies. Potato gets very attached to people, staff and volunteers and doing the hallway with him means stopping many times for standing hugs initiated by him. He loves caresses and appears so disappointed when a “friend” leaves him. He seems to be mixed up in the canine meet and greet department and once adopted or fostered, Potato will have to learn proper socialization with his peers. Potato is at the Manhattan Care Center, dreaming of a warm hearth, a safe home and a master or family to love. Come and meet him soon..
My medical notes are…
