SCULLY – 16399
Safe - 12-30-2017 Manhattan Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Scully. My animal id is #16399. I am a desexed female tan dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 10 months 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 18-Dec-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- landlord won’t allow.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Scully. Without her Mulder? Looking up for UFO’s? Maybe. Miss Scully started off as scared in her kennel, as this isn’t what she knows. She knows her former family of 2 adults, 2 young children and 2 ferrets, her soft bed, a full food bowl (she’s allergic to chicken), and covers to hide under if there’s a thunder storm. Scully is finally persuaded that I’m a friend, and once out, goes potty (we’re told she’s housetrained), shows me nice leash manners, and then off leash in the back joins me on the bench for some petting. Pleasantly plump, she’s been fed with love, her coat clean and groomed. Scully enjoys treats, taking them gently, gives kisses through the fence at a dog in an adjoining pen, and while still a bit anxious at this upheaval in her life, is making friends and coming out of her shell. We’re told she can be shy with strangers at first, and we’re all strangers, so this is a lot for this beautiful girl to deal with. And she’s dealing just fine, figuring it out step by step. I don’t do change well either, so I get Miss Scully and how brave she’s being. Scully is a proven family girl, and even liked licking the ferrets, so let’s get this little girl into a new home so she can once again have a family to love and take care of. A volunteer updates: That’s my girl! Scully saw me approach, her tail starts to wag and she came forward to be leashed. (She licked the ferrets she lived with, I still love that about her!) She’s figured out the routine, knows that people with leashes are friends ready to take her out for a walk and she’s a happy girl. Off leash, some zoomies, some bounces, some tail wags and a big smile; she’s happy to be out to stretch her legs and go potty. She’s such a beautiful dog, she takes my breath away as I watch her scamper through the pen. She’s ready to be part of a loving family again, and all she needs is for you to meet her and say “she’s the one”, and take her home. You’ll want to, trust me.
