SARABI – 18580
Safe - 1-26-2018 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Sarabi. My animal id is #18580. I am a desexed female brown brindle dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 18-Jan-2018, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- military duty.
Sarabi is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Behaviorally, we have no concerns for Sarabi, whom we believe would be suitable for most homes.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: In Swahili her name means ‘mirage’ but this charming brindle beauty is as real as it gets! Sarabi’s full of life and EVERYONE who’s been lucky enough to spend time with her has fallen head-over-heels for her fun-loving, affectionate ways. Read over the comments from her previous family and our own staff and you’ll see for yourself, Sarabi truly has it all! Is she kid friendly? You bet! Does she snuggle? Oh boy, does she! Can she learn commands? Already on it! Is she dog friendly? Yes! Though Sarabi can get a bit overexcited during play with large dogs, she lived in easy-going harmony with a little four-legged sibling in her previous home. Happy to share her toys, her food and her heart, Sarabi is the perfect pet for almost any family. She’s velvety soft and cuddly, wonderfully playful, an enthusiastic walker, seemingly house trained and a fantastic model too, posing politely on command then nibbling her reward treats delicately from my hand. Even her initial intake notes read like an A-plus report card: ‘Sarabi was very loose bodied and she was jumping around and galloping. She lay on my lap and was rolling over for belly rubs. She listened to the cues I gave for sit stay and down and when she was on the leash she followed me by my side. When I went to put her in the kennel she walked right in and took treats from my hand.’ How could you not want to take this girl home?!!! Sarabi means L-O-V-E and she has so much to give to the family who welcomes her into their life. Step up for this sweetheart today!
