A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: I am not a fan of big macs for a host of reasons but like many here at the care center, I love our very own Big Mac ! He is a smooth operator, always ready and welcoming in his kennel, silent(his gentle eyes and waggy tail do all the talking…), a great walker, likely house trained , respectful nearing other dogs , sociable and friendly . Going to the park is a pleasure as Big Mac is not taking me for a wild ride. Pigeons or squirrels do not excite him. He just enjoys the promenade and i do too. A really easy going four legged friend. Big Mac is well known to all here at the care center for his hand/paw shaking skills, his excellent sits and rolling on his back for belly rubs. He is boyfriend material….He does have a keen eye for his ladies friends and old fashion neutering will be soon very much in order. Big Mac is close to middle age, well nourished and well dressed in an elegant golden coat. His sweet face will need mending though..a task our veterinary team has already started. Big Mac is such a good patient that his visits to the medical office are always welcome… Big Mac is a great guy, a very pleasant companion a new owner or family will be happy to have as a forever best friend. Big Mac is at the Manhattan Care Center, waiting for you..
