A volunteer writes: Shorty seemed a little aloof when I first got him out of his kennel. He was a new arrival and well, his owner just passed away…My heart melted and I just picked Shorty up and placed him on my lap…Shorty was beaming….He kissed me right away, settled himself comfortably and just enjoyed a moment of love and peace…I was so happy to have brought some warmth to his heart and made him feel better. Shorty’s owner made him to be a wonderful friend, a good little dog anyone would want to spend time with. Shorty is a good walker, does his business on the way, climbs stairs and nears small peers without problem. He will need veterinary care like so many elderly chaps. Shorty is adorable, sweet, needy and loving. Come, meet him soon at the Manhattan Care Center and take him home as your new and wonderful four legged companion.
