ZINC – 14787
Safe - 12-11-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Zinc. My animal id is #14787. I am a desexed female gray dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 27-Nov-2017.
Zinc 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 Zinc is best suited to and adult only home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Three year old Zinc is a gorgeous gal who looks out of place in her kennel. “Me, me…I do not belong here…I want to walk around the block, go to the park, play and enjoy people and dogs’ company.” Zinc is a boyish, although very good looking female, quite stunning, I must say, in her shiny silvery coat wrapping a perfect body. I love her bat-like ears and her pointy muzzle. She has been remarkably well cared for by her former owner. Zinc was a little cautious with me as we first met, then reconsidered and deemed me worth her attention, treats helping, of course. My lap and hugs became to her liking, but much later in our encounter. She was my friend, then. Zinc is a strong girl who pulls quite a bit on the leash. She sits nicely, though on command, does her business on the way, and seems excited in a nice way to see other dogs. She is boisterous in playgroups and has the time of her life with her peers. Zinc knows what an “owned” dog–a pet–is supposed to do and to get. She just needs some fine tuning, some curbing of her enthusiastic and excitable nature, and of course, a safe and loving home. A wonderful companion will be then reborn. Come and meet Zinc at the Manhattan Care Center and offer her the golden life she deserves.
