A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: We can all see the Boxer in her… Her face, her cinnamon markings and her booted white legs. Sunday is really gorgeous, immaculate and so well cared for. She was a cherished family pet since tender puppyhood and shared her life, happily with another female and …a cat.Sunday was a little shy and submissive when she arrived at the care center but frequent walks with staff and volunteers as well as playdates with her peers got her out of her shell. She is without exaggerating, a volunteers favorite as she is so pretty, low key, a great walker, very sweet and not a trouble maker… This gal really has a lot of plusses. She is very affectionate and seeks the attention and the love of her caretakers. She gives standing hugs and rolls on her back for belly rubs… You should see her cavorting with her peers, males and females, in the yard and having the fun of her life… Sunday is a delicious girl who will bring daily sunshine to the life of the new master or family who will adopt her. Bring a leash and a coat to the Manhattan Care Center…. I know that once you meet Sunday, you will take her home as your forever best friend.
