A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Suki would be the perfect dog for me and I imagine for many adopters looking for a calm while lively four legged best friend, a good listener, a loving companion for slow walks and lazy times reading a book or watching the telly. Yep, Suki is the one ! She is a pretty sight in her sparkling vanilla and chocolate dress, always harboring a big smile and gentle eyes that look with adoration to their caretaker.One really feels the center of attention while being with Suki, an unconditional admirer… Suki is a slow walker. She likes to stop from time to time and rest. It is hot outside and she is a little on the heavy side. More exercise and a proper diet are in order. She is fine with her peers , males and females , in playgroups or while on a stroll. Suki so enjoys to lay down in the yard, listening to a conversation between volunteers and accepting caresses. “It feels like home” she might say to herself . She is so happy, one of the pack, loved and wanted. Adorable Suki so would love to be yours and brighten your life with her presence. Come and meet her soon at the Manhattan Care Center.
