TENNIS – 14629
Safe - 12-8-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Tennis. My animal id is #14629. I am a female brown brindle dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 4 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 26-Nov-2017.
Tennis is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Behaviorally, we suggest that Tennis would be best suited to a dog experienced home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes:Tennis, anyone? This playful little lady is ready to roll right out the door and into whatever adventure life has to offer, from running round the dog park to snuggling on the sofa. She’s a real social butterfly and loves hanging out with friends of all species, especially in the great outdoors, so a home where she can enjoy lots of quality family time is a must. A nice leash walker and seemingly house trained, Tennis listens to guidance from her person and greets other dogs with polite good manners and soft tail wags. She knows how to come and sit on command and takes treats with a firm yet friendly grip and when I bring out a toy she’s happy to share. In playgroup she prefers to engage with pups who share her medium-level energy and while she can take a moment to get comfortable, once introductions are made she’s more than happy to join in soft, bouncy play with boy and girls alike. Tennis craves affection and attention but instead of sitting on my lap, she makes it clear she’d rather stand, thank you! Fortunately, she’s so small that we’re perfectly positioned for a face-to-face smooch session and my date takes full advantage by smothering my chin in lots of loving kisses. Sweet, petite and adorable to boot, Tennis would make a wonderful addition to any active, dog-savvy family. Ask to met her today!
