A Little Bit About Me…
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear “Pineapple”? One of the best and most sweetest things on the planet….right? Me too! Well this is one Pineapple that totally lives up to the name. She is a 6 year old medium sized female that will make everyday feel like you are sitting in the Caribbean, sipping a nice Pina Colada. (They have pineapple in it…get it?) She is one extremely laid back girl, who is a total love bug. She will melt your heart, and make you forget all of your troubles. And if you find the right spot, she will melt in your hands in return. And even though her sandy coat resembles the color of a pineapple’s skin, it is definitly no where close in texture. She has one of the softest and silkiest coats I have ever felt. Which is the perfect compliment to her gentle dimeanor. So if you love pineapples as much as I do, come down to the Animal Care Centers of NYC’s Brooklyn location and meet this wonderful lady!
