A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Almost as white as snow, lovely Snow is with us as her long time owner could not take care of her pet anymore. She comes with wonderful recommendations and seems to have been a well cared and loved companion to that single master. Snow is one lively middle aged gal, pretty , girly and full of spunk with people and dogs alike. She must have been a lot of fun to be with and at the same time a great source of love and joy… On the leash, she is a dream. A great walker she is , likely house trained as related to us by her former owner, cool with the pigeons and polite with her peers. In the yard, she is a jumping bean, mostly when treats are involved. She surely can sit for them but will rather jump very high to get more. Not shown on her videos (as i ran out of juice…), she runs after balls and catches expertly. Snow is really nice to watch in playgroups with her kind. She clearly enjoys herself like a kid in a playground. Interesting part is that she never really mingled with dogs in the past…Snow is an awesome gal. She will bring sunshine to your life , something we will need for sure with the winter months coming in…. Come and meet her soon at the Manhattan Care Center. This is the friend you have been waiting for..
