ASHES – 10207
Safe - 10-26-2017 Manhattan Rescue: Bella's NY Bullies Please honor your pledges:
Hello, my name is Ashes. My animal id is #10207. I am a female gray dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 4 years old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 19-Oct-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- moving – no pets allowed.
Ashes 10207 is at risk for her medical condition, including severe dermatitis, a heart murmur, ear infection, and cataracts. Behaviorally, Ashes has been tolerant of handling by her human caretakers with a slow approach, and has been social with other small dogs in playgroup (though her previous owner notes conflicts with other dogs). we recommend an adopter with some previous dog experience, who will allow Ashes to warm up to her new home and new family at her own pace.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: This cutie patootie was sleeping in her kennel when I approached, but quickly got up saying a walk would be lovely, thank you. Easily leashed, she steps carefully down on her short little legs, and out we go. Going potty was her first priority as we’re told from her former owner that she’s housetrained, and then she showed off lovely leash manners as we walked. Off leash in a pen, Ashes wags her tail as she prances towards me, and although a little hand shy, enjoys some petting. Show her a ball and she sits right away, waiting for the throw, and then she gently chases after it. Ashes wagged her tail at a dog in an adjoining pen, and in her first playgroup, after some initial discomfort, she enjoyed some gentle play with a male greeter. Ashes was surrendered by her owner due to landlord issues, and we’re told that his favorite thing about her is what a good companion she is, and that her favorite thing is car rides. Her favorite treats are Milk Bone, she lived with and played gently with the 3 children in the home, she’s afraid of fireworks and thunder and will hide under the bed, is crate trained and likes to sleep in her crate, doesn’t like being brushed, and lost her eye when she was a puppy. I found Ashes to be sweet and friendly on our first date, and am looking forward to our second one. She’s a tiny little thing with a big heart and is hoping to find the human heart to match hers. Ask to meet her today.
