Gone - 1-25-2018 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Tater. My animal id is #18276. I am a female brown brindle 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 14-Jan-2018.
Tater is at risk for behavioral reasons. Tater is nervous and fearful in the shelter, and whilst, given some time, she accepts people she comes to know, she remains very fearful of people she doesn’t. This results in her displaying what comes across as aggressive behavior towards visitors to the shelter. Medically, we have no concerns for Tater, who presents as a healthy dog.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A staff member writes: Ever been to a prairie to roll down the hills to release some energy? Do you want to but with a friend who will enjoy it as much as you will? Look no further. Tater is shy at the moment, but offer her an enticing jump & a skip, and you’ll get her playful gears going. The way she leaped forward reminded me of those dance moves from the movie “The Sound of Music”: very dainty but still full of LIFE & PASSION. Just a moment later, she hopped onto my lap with the same daintiness as if to say “Thank you, dear, for the much needed fun”. That’s all she really needs: someone who will have as much fun with her as she will with them. A volunteer writes: Elegant, ethereal, and so very shy, our Tater is nonetheless happy for a chance to come out for a walk. She’s alert and curious as she checks out her new environment, never missing a thing, especially a squirrel who comes too close. Watch out, squirrel! She shyly welcomes affection when it comes softy and gently, putting paws on a lap, enjoying some treats, and then some easy petting. Off leash, she’s all about some zoomies as she enjoys the freedom of an open pen. Tater’s world has been shaken to the core when she lost her person, and she’s rebounding as best she can. A soft, gentle, easy approach, giving her time to warm up on her own timetable, is what our beauty needs. How big is your heart?
