A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Coleslaw is no mere side dish, this adorable boy is the main event! He loves people, food and dogs (in that order) and is such a dream date that I could happily have spent my whole shift being lavished with his snuggles and kisses. Beautiful inside and out, Cole hasn’t been given the best medical care or food in the past and it shows in his raw skin, underweight frame and endless hunger for treats but with a new home and all those things in abundance he’s going to look like a million bucks. Let’s face it–he’s already halfway there! Described by the good Samaritan who found him as friendly, affectionate, playful and confident, Cole is all that and so much more and he rocked his behavior assessment with spotless scores on everything from paw handling to toy sharing. In playgroup he runs, jumps and bows to fellow pups and would love to find a new family where he has some lively siblings or can enjoy lots of playdates with equally energetic four-legged pals. A sofa snuggler, a jogging partner, a dinner date, an Instagram star, your kids best friend or all of the above…the possibilities are endless when you welcome darling Coleslaw into your life. Come on in to our Manhattan Care Center and meet this wonder of doggie perfection today!
