SPAGHETTI – 14877
Safe - 12-7-2017 Manhattan Rescue: SNARR Northeast Please honor your pledges: https://snarrnortheast.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Spaghetti. My animal id is #14877. I am a female gray dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 29-Nov-2017.
Spaghetti is at risk due to being diagnosed with canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex which is contagious to other dogs. Spaghetti will likely require in home care with a course of antibiotics. There are no known behavior concerns for Spaghetti at this time.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Uh-oh, it’s Spaghetti-o! Cute as a button, playful as a puppy and so well-mannered you’ll feel like you’re strolling with royalty, Spaghetti is everything I imagine when I think of the perfect family pet. She looks like a million bucks (that smile!) but it’s her heart and soul where the real treasure lies. Within minutes of meeting her, I was completely smitten. Spaghetti can’t wait to get outside and spend time with her friends, yet never pulls on leash (except to meet other dogs), and almost seems to anticipate my every move. I slow down and she does, too, I go to turn a corner and she’s already there, I stop to chat and Spaghetti waits patiently by my side. She sits very nicely on command (or on a lap!), gently accepts treats, and adores fetching toys and playing tug-o-war, but always with the softest mouth and a happy-to-share attitude. Tail-waggingly keen as she is to make four-legged friends in the street, off leash in the yard Spaghetti’s not so confident meeting them face-to-face, and prefers slow introductions and the space to walk away if she feels the need, so no dog parks just yet. As you’ve probably guessed, Spaghetti rocked her behavior assessment, and now she’s ready to be the best behaved, most adorably affectionate pet your dog-savvy family never knew they were missing. Home is where the heart is, and Spaghetti can’t wait to start lighting up yours with her sweet, sunny smile. Another volunteer writes. You’ve heard of the coat of many colors? This is the dog of many names! Cherished so much she’s been named several times, and we’re now calling her Spaghetti. Miss Spaghetti is a gem, great on leash, likely housetrained, had infinite patience as I put a sweater on her, at first backwards so had to start all over again, and she just stood there while I fumbled. She actually didn’t just stand there, she snuck in a kiss! Spaghetti sits, shakes paw, comes when called, leans in for cuddles and kisses and had me falling in love in 10 seconds. Spaghetti is the best friend you never knew you needed, so come meet her today.
