May be “Citrine” refers to the color of his gorgeous and limpid eyes because for sure, this little boy is all white. Love at first sight! Yep. What ‘s not to love about Citrine ? He is adorable, petite, gentle, well mannered, welcoming, sociable, friendly to people and other dogs and super affectionate. There are not enough words to describe how good this munchkin is and still, someone who took great care of him, let him go… We can not judge of course when we do not know anything about Citrine and his past life. What we do know , though, is that he is deaf. He comes right away when called but only with inviting gestures. He sits on command and for treats as my hand hints to it. Vibrant noises, humming sounds. Nothing… And he is so well adapted to his disability ! What a great guy! Citrine is very cute, well groomed and healthy looking. He could use a few more pounds. His attitude is generally calm and he walks peacefully by my side. He meets other dogs upfront in the street and through the fence at the care center, with poise, his body gently wiggling and his tail wagging. Free in a pen, he settles between my legs for bonding, hugging and kissing. Citrine aced his behavioral evaluation at the care center and is ready to meet you, right now. He is an awesome little boy, well in balanced with his impairment and will make a top of the line forever best friend. Come and meet him soon at the Manhattan Care Center.

••BEHAVIOR – AVERAGE – 3/26/15**
Citrine pulls a bit on the leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body, low wag. He was playful and excited; at times he would mouth the assessor’s hand and leash but his body always remained soft and wiggly, no signs of aggression. Citrine engages in play, loose body, wags tail, mouth is open and jumps on the assessor when play begins. He did not resist being handled while eating, and was easily pushed out of the food bowl. He engages with the toy with loose, wiggly body and relinquishes toy to assessor. Citrine keeps a firm grip on rawhide but keeps a loose, wiggly body.
Citrine was brought to the care center as a stray; he was playful and wiggly upon intake and showed the same behavior throughout the assessment. He mouthed the assessor’s hand and leash during some portions of the assessment but his body was continually soft and wiggly with no signs of aggression. He ceased eating when the food bowl was moved and easily pushed out of the food bowl. The Behavior Department believes Citrine can go to an average home that is willing to provide him with suitable mental and physical stimulation.
