ZARIAH – 14163
Safe - 11-29-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Zariah. My animal id is #14163. I am a female brown brindle dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 20-Nov-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- cannot handle smell or mess.
Zariah is at risk due to being diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex which is contagious to other dogs. Zariah will likely require in home care with a course of antibiotics. There are no known behavior concerns for Zariah at this time, average determination.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes:”Zariah” is defined as “a beautiful, charismatic young, woman who not only steals the hearts of many, but keeps them safe and cherished.” Well I think that’s just perfect for our cinnamon-coated sweetheart. 2 year-old Zariah is quiet as a mouse in her kennel, resting her perfectly petite and brindled frame against the door and looking out with her furrowed brow. She walks beautifully on leash as we head out into a brisk, November day, and tends to her business the moment we hit the pavement before politely going about her way. Yes, our beautiful girl has manners for days, taking her treats gently, greeting another dog calmly as they pass us by, and hopping up to join me without being asked as we encounter a shady, park bench. But Zariah’s true claim to fame – her most notable feature, that which sets her apart from all others – is her snuggly sweetness, her Grade A cuddles, the warmth she exudes from the tip of her nose right down to her long, wagging tail. Zariah rests her legs across my lap and the noise of the city fades away. And though the wind has picked up, whipping leaves around us quickly on cold breath, we two could not be warmer were we under the summer sun. We’re told Zariah previously lived with children as young as four months and was relaxed and playful with them. Also that she often needs a bit of time to warm up to other pups eventually becoming playful and friendly. Winter may be around the corner but you’ll need nary a scarf or a glove with a heart this warm at your side. Zariah is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan ACC.
