RICO – 15765
Gone - 12-23-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Rico. My animal id is #15765. I am a desexed male black dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 8 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 09-Dec-2017, with the surrender reason stated as animal behaviour – too lethargic.
Rico is at risk due to medical condition, lameness, paralysis and possible disc herniation. We recommend Rico get an MRI and surgery may be necessary. Rico has been sensitive to handling (snapping) but we are unsure how much is related to temperament vs. medical condition/pain.
My medical notes are…
Weight: 27 lbs
