Safe - 11-2-2017 Manhattan Rescue: Beastly Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://www.beastlyrescue.org/donate
Hello, my name is Rex. My animal id is #10945. I am a male brown brindle dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 27-Oct-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- homeless.
Rex is at risk due to being diagnosed with Canine Upper Respiratory Disease Complex which is contagious to other dogs. he will most likely require in home care with a course of antibiotics. we recommend Rex go to an experienced dog owner that is prepared to manage his size and strength.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: “He played a big brother role to the children around him.” And with those words, his former owner surrendered him to our care due to personal problems. Rex comes with an outstanding resume of a family dog who has been with the same family all his life. He lived with young children with whom he was relaxed and playful, is friendly with strangers, doesn’t guard his things, loves water and baths, is nervous with fireworks and storms, is housetrained, well behaved when left home alone, and energetic. I LOVED this gorgeous big headed boy who pulls at first on leash, but after going potty, walks at a nice pace. He pulls towards birds in our path, did a bouncy bow to two small dogs in front of a store, and in his first playgroup with a female, enjoyed some running play. Off leash in a pen with me, Rex loved his toys, running from one to another, amusing himself like a pro. He brings a toy over to me for a good game of tug, and when I let him win, he brings it back to give me another chance. So thoughtful, lol! Rex knows a number of commands, showing off his sit and shake when I asked. Affectionate, snuggly, lively and an all around awesome dog with the fabulous ear to ear grin Pitties are known for, Big Rex is hoping you’ll stop by to meet him today. He’s ready to find a new family to love, and it should be you!
