Who loves kids, dogs, toys, treats and cuddling? Who rocked his behavior assessment with near perfect scores? Who’s got the cutest tiny teefy smile ever? If you guessed Terrah, you’re not wrong! Terrah, or Terry to his friends, is the snuggliest, silliest, smiliest guy at the Care Center and resisting his charm offensive is a battle you’ll be happy to lose. He’s such a fun and friendly boy that his tail pretty much never stops wagging, not even during his medical exam! I think he’s secretly part cat as he loves chin scratches and will solicit petting by rubbing back and forward against my legs then proceed to pose with his butt up and head down for a back massage in a very un-doglike fashion. He sits politely for treats or to wait for a ball toss, loves to play fetch and is always happy to share his toys and after a good run around the yard will stop, drop and roll belly up in the grass with a goofy grin on his face. Terry is seriously cute stuff. Clearly well socialized and trained by his former family, he walks nicely on leash, greets other pups politely and takes care of both ‘numbers’ not long after we step outside and is always soft and social in playgroup, too. Already neutered and ready to start filling your life with love, laughter and silliness as soon as you welcome him home, Terry is patiently waiting to charm your socks off at our Manhattan Care Center. Make a date with him today and get ready to smile smile smile!
