He is as cute as a baby deer. Fawn color, dark eyes, a gracious silhouette. Silly, mouthy and needy like the five month old puppy he is. Totally oblivious he is to the fracture that affects one of his hinds. Yes, this is Wiggly for you , so well named after his happy go lucky behavior….Wiggly let’s you know he does not belong to a kennel but to the green grass he knows there is at the end of the hallway. He mostly wants to be in company, be petted and get treats that he so well will sit for. He loves belly rubs and would not mind running after the birds if I did not stop him. He wags his tail big time at other dogs, big and small but because of his temporary disadvantage, Wiggly will not be placed in playgroups with his peers. Wiggly calls for veterinary help of course but also for your care and love of puppies. He is a charmer, an endearing little one who so would love to be yours…… for ever. Come and meet him soon at the Manhattan Care Center.
Basic Information:Wiggly is a tan and white colored male dog that was surrendered stray. Finder stated they found him limping and unable to move much. They think he was hit by a car and dislocated his hind joints and brought him in for medical attention.
