You know you’re one of the sweetest hearts around when people actually joke about it. “Oh Dyno. No, he’s not nice at ALL.” “Not like he’s just perfect in every way, right?” “No I’m not madly in love with Dyno. Not one bit.” (The last comment may have been mine.) And it’s true. Try and find things to dislike about this 14 year-old charmer and you’ll come up empty handed. Despite the different spelling Dyno does remind me of the Rat Pack of yore. He is gentlemanly, smooth, charismatic, and handsome, and I can easily picture him rubbing elbows with Sinatra or maybe enjoying a cold martini (or two). Dyno is a golden boy in his golden years though truth be told I’d never have guessed how golden. Despite some natural and cosmetic wear and tear Dyno, exudes youth and the contentedness that comes with youth. He walks well on leash, takes his treats gently, and while he still appears to be working on his basic commands – well you know what they say about learning new tricks. Dyno may be content in the here and now but what he deserves is to know joy. To know safe, to know certain, to know forever, to know home. Dyno is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan’s ACC.
Dyno is a 14 year old male American Pit Bull Terrier. Owner is surrendering him because her living situation has changed and she can no longer keep him. Dyno was a gift from family when he was 7 months old. Owner stated he has no medical issues and last saw a vet about 7 months ago here at ACC.
Dyno is friendly around strangers. HE has lived with kids of all ages and is playful and tolerates their handling. Owner stated she has an autistic child and Dyno is respectful of him. He plays in a gentle manner with kids and adults. He lived with a 3 year old male Yorkie. He was played in a gentle manner with this pet. He has never lived or spent time with cats. He has never bitten a person or animal.
Owner stated he has not behavior issues and is not bothered by loud or sudden noises. He does not guard food, treats of any kind, or toys. He tolerates all sorts of handling. He will bark if someone knocks on the door but is not bothered if someone unfamiliar approaches his owner. Owner has never trimmed his nails.
For a New Family to Know
Dyno is described as friendly, affectionate, and playful with a medium activity level. Owner stated Dyno likes to cuddle. He will follow his owner around when home. He likes to play with stuffed toys and plays fetch and chase. He was kept indoors only and slept in his own dog bed. He was fed a mixture of wet and dry Pedigree dog food. Owner gave him 1 ½ cups three times a day. He is house-trained and will potty anywhere outside. He is well behaved when left home alone and in a yard. He has never been crate trained. He knows commands sit, come, and grab your leash. Owner would let him run in a closed yard for exercise. He does not pull on a leash and wanders but comes back when called off the leash.

Rick is a chill guy counting a few seasons that treated nicely his handsome body. A mild cloudiness in his eyes and few calluses give away his age but across the board, he is in great shape and spry, sporting a well groomed coat and showing a very gentle and sociable personality. Indeed, Rick is a very likable eight year old gent, easy going, friendly and who really does not want to get into any squabble with his peers when they bark at him. He seems to like little dogs too, may be because he lived with one named Marty( also with us ). Marty and Rick were found abandoned in an apartment as their owners were evicted and had to leave them behind. Both of them are most likely very house trained and were found in a spotless place, relieving themselves as they were taken out…Same here at the care center. Rick is a sweet chap who enjoys caresses as well as treats that he takes very gently from my hand. He can sit on command and even jump…He is a great walker, does not chase birds and does his business on the way. Both Rick and Marty are endearing dogs, likely house dogs who like their masters, got out of luck…They did not come to us with any curriculum vitae but they exhale goodness and spell…family dogs… Will you give Rick and Marty a chance to show how good they are…in your hands ? They are waiting for you, dreaming of you…at the Manhattan Care Center.
