RUBOY – 11650
Safe - 11-11-2017 Manhattan Rescue: Rescue Dogs Rock NYC Please honor your pledges: http://rescuedogsrocknyc.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Ruboy. My animal id is #11650. I am a male brown brindle dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 5 years old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 03-Nov-2017.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Ruboy is a handsome and elegant gent, a bit thin but healthy looking and very well dressed in his semi long hair well groomed coat. His copper eyes are keen, vigilant and he pays careful attention to his surroundings. Ruboy is a bit tense in his kennel. He does not know me and being 5 years old, he has been around, is experienced and wants to make sure that I am an ok person to be with. A great walker he is, pulling occasionally, doing his business on the way and leaving birds and squirrels alone. He seems a little nervous and backs off when another dog gets “in his face” and in particular when a huge male zeroed on us at the hand of a careless owner. We were so lucky. Ruboy loves treats, he can sit very nicely for them although at the beginning of our encounter he was not willing to do so. He started to wag his tail too…. We were making progress.. Today was another day. Ruboy was much more active, still not a fan of his kennel but so excited to go out, run and jump high after a ball or to catch a treat. He was really “all out” , displayed a big smile and even was a little too much stimulated. Down time, Ruboy listens, comes, sits, accepts treats and back to his kennel with a soft bedding. See you later, my friend, and lets dream together of a comfy home, filled with treats, toys and mostly the love of a master. Ruby is at the Manhattan Care center waiting for you. Additional bio: Ruboy, although still not a fan of his kennel, has softened so much since his arrival. I got such a big smile today in the park, and I was able to catch it with my camera. He is such an easy walk, attuned to my instructions, undisturbed by little critters and other dogs, sitting on command, taking treats nicely and resting by my side on a bench. He really enjoys his time out, too. Reading other volunteers’ comments, I see that he has been appreciated all around despite his stern looks and dark suit. A good and loving heart is hiding underneath, I really know it, as I have been walking him quite a bit by now. Ask to meet Ruboy, see what a gem he truly is, and take him home as your forever best friend.
