TWIRL – 16889
Safe - 12-30-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Twirl. My animal id is #16889. I am a female white dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 1 years old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 24-Dec-2017.
Twirl is at risk due to being diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex which is contagious to other dogs. She likely will require in home care with a course of antibiotics. She should go to an experienced dog owner that will allow her to acclimate to her new surroundings at her own pace.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Twirl is a wall flower and one really wonders why. She is quiet, shy , a little tentative and easily passed over in her kennel. Twirl is beautiful though, elegant, long legged and so well groomed. She is a good girl , a pleasant walker, possibly housetrained and is not looking to quarrel with anyone. She is timid with her peers in playgroups and rather clings to her caretakers. Free in a pen, she explores a little but likes to stay around her humans, sitting politely for treats and giving gentle standing hugs. She wags her tail to let you know silently that she appreciates your attention. Twirl is a little hand shy for caresses but has very much improved since her arrival at the care center. She realized that she had friends and people who wanted to make sure that she finds the best forever home. Come and meet this lovely princess and make her the queen of your house.
