SASHA – 12109
Safe - 11-15-2017 Manhattan Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Sasha. My animal id is #12109. I am a female white dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 10 years old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 08-Nov-2017.
Sasha is an underweight, geriatric gal with hematuria and dental disease who was recently diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex which is contagious to other dogs. She will likely require in home care with antibiotics for CIRDC and a geriatric workup at the vet. She should go to an experienced home who is prepared to manage her medical care.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: The first thought that comes to mind is she is sooo skinny and so in need of TLC. True, but what really strikes me is how pretty and girly and ladylike she is. Her stylish ears, her vanilla and butterscotch coloring; and she is so petite. Sasha has a temperament to match her looks. She is a very friendly, sociable and affectionate gal who would stay 24/7 around people. Not that she does not like her peers. She enjoys their company, too. She is a great little walker, sits on command, comes right away when called, wags her tail non stop and absolutely loves treats. Dressing her with a coat and outfitting her with a bow is totally fine with her. Well, she needs to gain quite a bit of weight, but slowly, of course. Sit on the bench and she will come for caresses. Add another human and another one and Sasha will be even more beaming. Sasha is truly an adorable sweetheart who will make undoubtedly the joy of a new owner or family. Come and meet her soon at the Manhattan Care Center. Sasha is dreaming to become a pampered pet…and of course to give back all the love she has in her. Another volunteer writes: She’s already ‘Miss Popularity’ with her sweet, shy but lovable personality, her joy at being out for a walk, and her unassuming demeanor. Alert, engaged and ready to make new friends, Sasha sashays down the street on leash, wagging her tail from side to side as she goes like she doesn’t have a care in the world. I love watching her as she walks, great on leash, in a warm coat against the chill. She’s not a fan of going back into her kennel when there are new people to see and meet. She wants to be part of the action and I love that! Sasha needs to gain some weight, so we’re feeding her an extra meal each day. You can see into her soul through those sweet and thoughtful eyes, and she’s ready to make your world a better place. Another volunteer writes: Sasha is a bit timid and cautious at first, but also quite gentle and affectionate when she warms up to you. She’s great on the leash — doesn’t pull at all — and has a pleasantly calm and collected demeanor.
