BENZ – 12132
Safe - 11-20-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Benz. My animal id is #12132. I am a desexed male 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 09-Nov-2017.
Benz is at risk for medical reasons. Benz contracted Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex yesterday, which is contageous to other dogs. Behaviourally, Benz has been assessed as suitable for most homes.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: With a name like Benz (first name Mercedes?) I was expecting an upper crusty kind of a dude, nose in the air, aloof and sophisticated. Instead, I met a fun-loving, lively, affectionate little guy who is every bit as stunning as the car after which he may have been named. Welcoming in his kennel he’s anxious to hit the road, and while for the first minute he goes from 0 to 60, he settles into a nice pace for a walk to the park. Pottying is a priority, and with business done from that end, he does like to jump up and play with the leash, but also gives that up after a minute and then shows off nice leash manners. He enjoys walking carrying a toy in his mouth which, needless to say, elicited lots of ‘awwwwwwws’, from passersby. Benz lets me put a coat on him against the cold, shows off his sit for a treat taken gently, and never stops wagging his tail. Off leash in a pen, Benz is up on the bench with me for some kisses, and then lies down and sort of does an army crawl to sneak into my treat bag. So cute, does he think I can’t see him? Playing with a ball is fun, and Benz lets me take it right out of his mouth. He’s gorgeous in a well-taken-care-of grey coat, his brown markings on his face showcasing his gorgeous eyes, and he has the tiniest little chin whiskers that remind me of my Aunt Lotte. Energetic, fun, playful and affectionate, Benz invites you to come meet him. So, rev your engines and do that today!
