DIVA – 15644
Safe - 12-22-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Diva. My animal id is #15644. I am a desexed female brown dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 07-Dec-2017.
Diva 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 Diva would be best suited to a dog experienced home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes:Mariah, Whitney, Gaga, Swift. All great, of course. But can any hold a candle to our cinnamon sensation? Diva may not have the golden pipes of those aforementioned ladies (she’s not much of a barker), but she’s good on the charisma. With a sparkle in her eye so bright it’s as if she’s lit by spotlight, and a smile so enchanting it’d dazzle even the most frenzied paparazzo, 2 year-old Diva is undoubtedly meant for stardom. Now let’s pull back the curtain on why. We’ve covered her ample physical charms but Diva is far more than meets the eye. While she does pull slightly on leash, eager to make her way to center stage, she’s quick to sit and gentle in taking her treats, that pretty head cocked attentively to the side at every moment in between. Diva comes to us as a stray so unfortunately much of her past is unknown. We know she’s a bright and confident girl who appreciates the finer things (we’re talking snacks and toys) in life and can make the plainest of holiday scarves look like a million bucks. But even a certified superstar needs a quiet place to rest her head. A warm hearth to go home to, a door that’s always open, and someone who’ll love her no matter what even when the glitz and glamour are gone. Mariah, Whitney, Gaga, Swift. Sure. They’re all well and good. But there’s one special diva just waiting in the wings for her chance to steal the show. Diva is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan ACC. Another volunteer writes:Diva is anything but! She’s playful, affectionate, sweet, fun, and she’s a playgroup helper dog, attesting to her love of her fellow canines. Rock star! Housetrained, good on the leash, and while she pulls towards other dogs on the street wanting to play, she can be redirected and managed easily, and with consistency and rewards (lots of treats), she’ll learn what to do. Off leash, she’s great, loves to play ball, can catch it on the fly, does little bunny hops as she plays keep-away with me. I don’t generally laugh out loud, but she had me laughing at her antics, her good sense of fun, her affectionate ways; she’s a great dog, pure and simple. She listens well, is respectful and smart, doesn’t mind being dressed for the cold, and is so much fun to be with. If your ideal soulmate is a fun loving, playful, affectionate, smart and beautiful dog, Diva is the one you want to ask for when you visit. She’s perfect!
