Angel is a an oldie but she’s still got plenty adventures left under her sleeves. She was brought in as an owner surrender as her previous owner could no longer afford to take care of her. This Angel has some dental disease, and a non-painful distended abdomen. She’s super sweet and will walk by your side even without a leash! Angel does get a little nervous sometimes so it’s best not to go too quickly with her. This kind Angel wants to remain by your side forever, so won’t you come on to MACC and get her now.
What’s not to love about a beautiful, mellow and mature lady like Angel? She’s still got her looks, her wits and a happy spring in her step and a quick glance at her intake notes reveal her to be a true family dog who more than lives up to that heavenly name. Angel has spent time with newborns and children of all ages and she’s very relaxed and tolerant with them, even allowing the little ones to lay on her and play with her tail or fur. She’s been around many types of dogs but usually just ignores them and during our walk she greets fellow pups nicely but is more interested in sniffing and exploring her new environment than socializing. Her den is spotless and she takes care of business the minute we step outside but Angel’s former owner tells us that like many seniors, she has recently been having more ‘accidents’ indoors and despite a reference to her low activity level, she seems a keen walker and I think would be more than happy to take several strolls each day to give her a chance to ‘go’ outside. With a coat this lush it’s no wonder one of Angel’s favorite treats is a good brushing and we’re told she’s chill with taking a bath or having a pedicure too — even older gals like to look their best! At home Angel likes to follow her people around, she prefers to stay close when off-leash as well and when bedtime arrives she’s all about the snuggling, sleeping right next to her human or settling down at the foot of their bed. She knows commands for ‘sit’ and ‘go to your room’, walks very well on leash, loves listening to (but never chasing) birds and is cool with any and all handling, including hopping right back into her kennel without a fuss when our date is over. A wonderfully laid-back companion with the kind of loyal, affectionate nature that would fit into almost any home, Angel is already spayed and ready to leave as soon as you are. Don’t miss this chance to take home a gorgeous little slice of Heaven, call into our Manhattan Care Center and ask for sweet Angel by name!
