A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Don’t rain on my parade! But with this velvety hippo you’ll never have need for an umbrella again. 6 year-old Rayne is a dumpling of a girl filled with sugar, spice, and everything nice and topped with an award-winning smile. “Chunky monkey!” fellow volunteer exclaims as Rayne waddles happily out of her kennel. And while yes Rayne may be one of our curvier gals at about 80 lbs that’s just more of her to love. Once outside Rayne is content nibble on snacks and snort in your ear then scratch an itch with a good loll in the grass. And if you think 80 pound pups can’t be lap dogs, well then you’ve obviously never met Rayne. Rayne’s previous owner notes she lived with a young child and also a cat whom she mostly ignored. She would do best with an experienced family who, based on some reactivity observed in the shelter, will make Rayne their one and only pup, the sole furry apple of their eye. April showers bring May flowers and this May brought the prettiest flower of them all. A velvety hippo with an award-winning smile just looking for a lap all her own. Rayne (#27325) is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan a ACC.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
Basic Information: Rayne is a six year old, large gray mixed breed female dog. She was surrendered to our facilities due to a combination of family health issues and immediate family not living in housing that can accommodate a dog her size.

Energy level/descriptors: Low
Has this dog ever had any medical issues? Yes
Medical Notes : Rayne has gotten UTIs in the past. Her most recent one was about 3 years ago. The vet that treated her gave her Clavamox which cleared up the infection.
For a New Family to Know : Rayne is not bothered in the following situations: when a stranger approaches her family, when pushed or pulled off of furniture, when held or restrained, or when disturbed while sleeping or resting. Rayne enjoys bath time and let the daughter of her owner bathe her on her own. She allows her paws to be handled. She will bark when someone rings the doorbell. She is described as friendly and affectionate with capital letters, playful, confident, and both mellow and excitable depending on the situation. Overall, her owners described her as being low energy. When you are home, she likes to be in the same room as you. She likes to play with balls and ropes. She will play tug-of-war and fetch. She has been kept mostly indoors and does not pull on the leash when she is walked. She is very housebroken and can hold her bladder for a long time. She has been crate trained and has remained in her crate for up to 12 hours, but normally is in there for much less than that. She would either sleep on the floor or in the bed with her owners. She was fed one 3 cup serving of dry food per day. Her favorite treats are “everything.” When left home alone, she is well-behaved. She knows how to sit, come, and stay. She is used to going for walks and to dog parks for exercise. Her owner eventually steered her away from dog parks after interacting with less friendly dogs and would let her run in empty baseball fields. When walked off leash, Rayne stays close by her owner’s side. Rayne’s favorite thing to do is hang out with her owners. Her owner’s favorite thing about her is how loving and friendly she is.
Behavior Notes: Upon intake, Rayne allowed all handling and sought out attention from counselors. She rolled on her back to have her belly scratched and would jump up to lick your face. She pulled quite hard on the leash but would also lay down and not move if the counselor was not walking.
