A volunteer writes: Cassiopeia is a photographer’s delight. She can not take a bad pictures… her sparkling eyes, her laughing mouth and those ears… they have a whole repertoire. Cassiopeia can be serious, silly, happy and tender. Well, she is only eight months of age and she has the right to express in full honesty all those feelings. I so enjoy my time with this delicious little girl, so pretty and feminine in her lovely shiny and silky brindle coat.She literally coaxes me into playing with her with her enticing glances. A little temptress… Cassiopeia pulls slighlty on the leash in her excitement to be out. She sits wonderfully well on command and loves treats. She comes right away when I call her and lands on my lap for caresses and hugs. She seems to like other dogs and plays as expected: as a happy go lucky youngster with other pooches. Cassiopeia is dreaming of a new owner or family and waiting at the Manhattan Care Center to be discovered by you. A lovely and lively forever best friend she will be…
