LINDY – 12398
Gone - 12-28-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Lindy. My animal id is #12398. I am a desexed female tan dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 7 years 1 months 2 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 12-Nov-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- moving.
Sorry, this pet is for new hope partners only.
Lindy is at risk for behavior reasons. Due to past food guarding behavior and a bite incident, we are seeking placement for Lindy with a New Hope partner, and suggest she would be best suited to an adult only home. Medically, we have no concerns for Lindy, who presents as a healthy dog.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Lindy is a sensitive little lamb of a lady that’s hard not to fall for. Although shy and timid at the shelter, she still manages to just ooze sweetness. She is very easy to walk on leash, but does pull if she gets startled by something (when we crossed paths with a loud garbage truck, Lindy decided it was time to head for the hills and was bringing me along with her!). She seems to have housetraining, is reported to have lived harmoniously with a cat, and might be shy around other dogs. She loves food, and treats help pave the way to her heart. She responds to “sit”, “down” and even, very bashfully, “paw” (she’s not ready to hold hands yet!). She does seem to find comfort in a familiar face, and will gently wag her tail when I approach her cage, make soft eye contact when I talk to her, and reveal the CUTEST “that’s the spot” face if I help her out with one of her hard-to-reach itches. She seems like such a sweetheart and I suspect she’ll be much less of a nervous nellie once she’s back in a home…please come see if she might be a good fit for yours!
My medical notes are…
Weight: 63 lbs
Details on my behavior are…
Behavior Condition: 1. Green
