XENON – 16581

Hello, my name is Xenon. My animal id is #16581. I am a desexed female brown dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 8 years 2 months 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 20-Dec-2017.
Xenon is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Xenon also has a heart murmur, and suffers dental disease and skin sensitivities. Behaviorally, we have no concerns for Xenon, whom we believe would be suitable for most homes.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Xenon has already won the hearts of staff and volunteers, and can often be found hanging out on a blanket in the staff room while they work. Easy and gentle, she’s happy for the attention, happy to enjoy some yummy treats and some petting. Xenon was found tied up in a park and brought to our care by the police. Soft, gentle, sweet, likely housetrained with great leash manners, Xenon was someone’s love at one time, and it shows. A stop-and-smell-the-roses walker on leash, she doesn’t mind being tethered for photos, lets me clean her eyes of some eye goop, sweetly takes some treats (my second offering, as she didn’t like the first!), and showed off her sit in order to get them. Some yoga stretches (downward dog?) as she settles down, then her paws in my lap, tail wagging with some kisses. As we head back to the building, Xenon’s tail wags as we walk, and she checks out her new surroundings. Off leash, she loved to play tug, got the zoomies with some toys, and loved playing ball. She’ll jump for it, but closes her eyes, and I laugh. How is she going to catch the ball with her eyes closed? I picture a little leaguer with a baseball glove closing his/her eyes as the ball nears! Xenon is at that absolutely perfect age, happy with some play time, gentle walks, good food, nice naps, and lots of love. Gentle and sweet are the operative words here, and we’d of course like to add, ‘much loved’. She’s a middle aged sweetheart with so much love to give to her new family. Ask to meet her when you visit.
