TOPANGA – 16818
Safe - 1-6-2018 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Topanga . My animal id is #16818. I am a female white dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 23-Dec-2017.
Topanga is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Behaviorally, we suggest that Topanga would be best suited to a dog experienced home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Topanga is a Native American word/name meaning “where the mountain meets the sea”. It seems very poetic to me, and I actually love the name for this beauty. Her gleaming cow print coat, wagging tail, sweet smile and kisses won me over in a NY minute. She obviously wowed the vet during intake who commented, “playful, wags tail and licks face”. Yup, that’s Topanga!! Her leash manners are pretty good, she likes to make the birds fly, and her lively, fun energy is all about cuddling and kissing at this point. Happy to join me on the bench, Topanga loves to give kisses and enjoys a good massage, closing her eyes as I rub her chest. She’s a sweetheart who was well taken care of before joining us, her weight is perfect for her size, her coat shines, she’s social with both people and other dogs (spinning and play bowing to the male greeter dog). Lively, affectionate and ready to find her forever home, Topanga is hoping you’ll ask to meet her when you visit.
