A Little Bit About Me…
A Volunteer writes : Don’t let 14 year-old Roody’s age fool you. This frosted-faced funny boy is about as silly and spry as they come, loving nothing more on a recent fall day than an endless game of fetch under the sun on the cool green grass. But with a refined and elegant gentleman such as this you should come to expect three things: 1) Manners. Roody’s been around the block (literally) enough to know his way around terrific leash manners, gentle treat taking, and sitting without being asked. 2) Personality for days. Handsome as Roody is he didn’t get this far on good looks. Nope. Our silver fox will launch a charm offensive on you so full of silly grunts and playful winks you won’t even know what hit you. And trust me. You won’t care. 3) Cuddles. Tricks are for kids and so are long runs, brisk walks, jumps, leaps, and dives. No. Home is where the heart is and that’s Roody’s preferred spot for sure, sleeping the day away, under someone’s arm, or lying at the feet of one that he loves. Roody comes to us as a stray so not much is known about his former life. He did live briefly with his finder who had young children and a cat both of which Roody was respectful towards. Roody is quite underweight so could definitely use some delicious, home-cooked meals and of course a proper vet visit. Roody is relaxed and well-mannered, playful towards other dogs at the shelter, and would do best with someone committed to giving this special senior the golden years he deserves. They say you’re only as old as you feel and with this wonderful boy by your side? You’re sure to be forever young. Roody is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan ACC.
