A volunteer writes: Soft, petite and sweet, Miss Pumpernickel gamely comes for a walk despite her injured leg. We keep it very short and then head into a pen for off leash time. I assume that Miss Pumpernickel will sit this one out, but she explores, leans in for petting, and explores some more. Her tail wags at everyone passing our pen, and then comes back for more petting. Her coat is lush and soft, her eyes gentle, her demeanor easy. She needs vet care for her leg and although she’s ignoring it and making the best out of her situation, we can’t. Let’s get her the care she needs so she can become the outstanding companion she’s meant to be.

Who could resist such a beautiful face, those gentle eyes and this waggy tail ? Pumpernickel lays calmly in her kennel. She is a very attractive young dog, beautifully dressed(her markings are gorgeous) and so welcoming. A must to take out for a walk. Pumpernickel is a good trooper despite her left hind limp. She is medicated for pain, of course. i do not want to “fatigue” her and we just spent some quality time in a pen. She is such a good girl, sitting at once when asked, completely fine with putting a scarf around her neck or being watched by my phone and camera and oblivious to barking dogs. She likes treats, loves caresses and kisses, she is a great gal all around. Her beauty is just the cherry on top.She does have an eye for the minnows but does not chase them. I fell in love with Pumpernickel, her puppy looks, her nice manners and I can only imagine what a playful female sh could be once her hip gets better. Pumpernickel is waiting for you at the Manhattan Care Center. I know she will be a dream forever best friend.
