SKYLER – 10933
Safe - 11-15-2017 Manhattan Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Skyler. My animal id is #10933. I am a female white dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 27-Oct-2017.
Skyler is being placed at risk due to increased stress in care center. While Skyler has shown progress with handlers, she continues to show distance increasing behaviors (hard barking) in kennel and is not thriving in the shelter environment. At this time there are no know medical concerns for Skyler.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: I love when I take my leash down from it’s peg, a dog gets all excited and bouncy, as to her, it means ‘I’m going out’! It’s the cutest and most fun thing to watch, as you know this is a dog who loves her walks. At first shy in her kennel, she decided I’m friend material, and she joined me for a stroll to the park. She’s certainly housetrained, ‘going’ immediately once we were outside, and we both enjoyed our walk, as her leash manners are lovely. It’s clear she’s looking for something or someone as we walk, and she often holds up her head as if she’s listening intently. Staff tells me she’s a favorite to bring in their office and just hang out while they work, and she’ll often just fall asleep on a blanket and softly snore. I can just picture it, can you? Off leash in a pen, Skylar does some pacing, joins me on the bench for a kiss, or two, or three, and as of this writing, isn’t interested in toys or treats. It’s clear Skylar has been a mom several times, but she’s been well cared for, as her coat is clean and groomed. It may take Skylar a little while to trust and love her new family, but she will. It’s said the best things in life are worth waiting for, and Skylar will certainly prove that old adage to be true.
My medical notes are…
Weight: 64.125 lbs
