As a Star Trek’s fan, the name Sulu attracted me right away. Taking out the ten year old canine bearer of the name was no disappointment…Sulu is really a nice little guy, always at the front of his kennel and ready to go…Although an elderly, Sulu is a very good walker and stairs climber. He does his business outside his den which keeps is quarters clean. Despite the fact that his teeth have seen better days, Sulu has a great appetite and comes on the lap to ask for more treats . He also quite often requests hugs by tapping on my knees…. He is very responsive to orders and is really a pleasure to spend time with, making him a very nice, calm while lively and loving companion. Sulu comes with expected ailments connected to the aging process and probably suboptimal care but there is nothing better to change things around than a new and loving master or family. Come and meet Sulu at the Manhattan Care Center and take him home.
